I watched "The Machine Girl" last night. If you're a fan of Japanese exploitation films, then this movie has to be seen to be believed! Mix a "Pinky Violence" style storyline with totally gross out "Dead Alive" effects and you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about. I can't even count how many cheesy things are in this movie; ninjas in jogging suits, flying guillotines, drill bras, gallons of "Lone Wolf and Cub" style arterial showers, and frying human limbs tempura style. The female leads are extremely smoking, and the acting is totally over the top. You'll either be completely appalled, or laughing your a$$ off. This was the best $12.99 I've spent in a long time. Mark my words. This film is destined to be a cult classic.
Hey amsterdamaged, this certainly sounds like a movie I need to see!
Have you ever seen Wild Zero? That movie really blew my mind! A Japanese rock'n'roll zombie love story!
Wiki had this to say:
Ace, a wannabe rock star, is on his way to a concert of the rock/punk band Guitar Wolf when aliens invade the Earth. As a result the dead rise to their feet in the countryside setting of Asahi, Japan, with an appetite for flesh. Enlisting the help of Guitar Wolf, Ace and the members of the band get entangled in many misadventures with crazy rock managers in very tight shorts, transsexuals, naked women shooting guns in the shower, and bloodthirsty zombies ready to tear them apart. Leather jackets, loud over-modulated music, laser guitar picks, motorcycles, guns, muscle cars, and fire abound. Guitar Wolf, a Japanese trio signed to Matador Records in the US --and self-proclaimed coolest rock band in the world-- star as the well-coiffed hipster heroes. It is also a love story.
The music, in a garage punk vein, plays an important role in the film.
Guitar Wolf kick a$$! And talk about grindhouse/exploitation, WOW!! I love that movie!
