The Machine Girl

"The Machine Girl" (2008, Noboru Iguchi, Fever Dreams) is the Japanese action horror comedy about a schoolgirl who loses an arm, replaces it with a machine gun and uses it to take down all of those who have wronged her!

And it's in-keeping with my running theme of tough chicks with weaponry body-mods (it seems to be my thing this week).

Ami (Minase Yashiro) takes on a ninja-yakuza mob family after the murder of her brother, Yu (Ryosuke Kawamura). When she loses an arm at the hands (pardon the pun) of the Kimura family, she finds a way to make her disability a positive and heads on to take the family down in this horror-comedy schlock-fest.

Amongst the usual trappings of any B-movie horror comedy (eg. lots of blood spurting scenes), we also have tempura battered appendages, human sushi and a drill bra to look forward to.

Not one for the subtitle haters unless you can access the dubbed version.

Fast, dumb, gory and silly enough to be funny.
