If you are sensitive to gore, even fake cheesy not-even-trying-to-look-like-real-blood gore then DON’T watch this trailer. I was eating breakfast while watching this and it left me a little queasy.
Now that you have been warned, Yoshihiro Nishimura – Japanese makeup artist – has a trailer out for Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl. Its about as campy as that title sounds, but its not the acting or plot that will drive people to see this.
With his work on such films as Meatball Machine, Tokyo Gore Police and Machine Girl, make-up guru Yoshihiro Nishimura is spearheading the recent Japanese gore movement. His latest, Vampire Girl Vs Frankenstein Girl, has just dropped its first trailer, and it appears to be a thoughtful dissertation on just how much blood the human body contains.
I have been wanting to catch Tokyo Gore Police since I missed the screening at last year’s Toronto After Dark Film Festival but this one is going to get a big pass by me.
The draw seems to be all about the gore, and I like to have some substance to my films even if they are going to be bloody violent. But this is what happens when an effects artist makes a movie. Its just turns into a 90 minute resume.
I still want to see Tokyo Gore Police though.
