Next Year's Cult Hit - The Machine Girl

The Japanese have really taken it to the next level. Earlier this year we had a machine-gun-leg heroine named Cherry Darling, and now we've got The Machine Girl. The plot - oh screw it, this movie is about a high school girl who gains a gatling-gun-arm, and there's ninjas, flying guillotines, a drill bra, and more blood than you've ever seen before. Where do the hell do they come up with this stuff? Only over there across the Pacific, I guess I'd say. This could end up being "the cult film of next", but my only question is when the hell will we be able to see it?! At least this trailer will hold us over.

Watch the trailer for The Machine Girl:

The Machine Girl is both written and directed by Noboru Iguchi, of other crazy Japanese films like Cat-Eyed Boy, Sukeban Boy, and Kazuo Umezu's Horror Theater: The Harlequin Girl. The film doesn't have a US distributor or any release dates yet, but I hope in some way, shape, or form it makes its way here.

I fail to see any originality or actual entertainment. May I have the 1 minute 35 seconds of life wasted back?

WTF! Is this Grindhouse 2?

Ryan on Dec 10, 2007


i got to say this movie sucks big time! more blood does not always mean good unless you're psychologically-challenged... this is just another excuse to spill blood on screen trying to pretend it's a movie that make sense...

Real Men of Genius: Today we salute you, Mr. Cheesy Japanese Film Trailer Editor. You don't cut any corners when it comes to telling us what's in YOUR movie. Uncontent to just show us pictures, you decide to pop up huge words that tell us exactly what we'll be seing. Ninjas, Chainsaw, Flying Guillotine, and even: a drill bra. You make it easy to know exactly what we'll see, so that our brains don't have to work so hard. So crack open an ice cold Bud Light Mr. Cheesy Japanese Film Trailer Editor. Because you put back the "Ease", in "Japanese".

mahalie on Dec 10, 2007


I've said it before, and I'll say it again. DRILL BRAS SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!

Kevin on Dec 10, 2007

Robot Girl on Dec 11, 2007


This could either be really good or really bad

Elephant Bones on Dec 11, 2007


me rikey!!!!

joe blow on Dec 11, 2007


And the Grindhouse movement adds some eastern sauce... Horrendously low-budget, hilariously gratuitous, daft enough to be funny...but does that make it good? Only time, and a little more Tempura will tell... Like or loathe what Tarantino and Rodriguez achieved with their double bill, 'Planet Terror' was a fun, contemporay take on an exploitation approach to entertainment. It worked. Hell, it rocked. This looks like a poor knockoff with a budget/direction/plot and style ripped straight from the 70's (in a bad way). YUCK-uza.

Kevin, (14) Drill Bra's don't kill people. People kill people. This message brought to you by the N.D.B.A. (National Drill Bra Association.)

Yeah, it's supposed to be cheesy and over the top bloody. I'm hoping for a "Lone Wolf and Cub"/"Lady Snowblood" for the 21st century kind of thing, and it doesn't look as though I'll be disappointed. If I feel like being intellectually stimulated, then I won't watch this, granted. But for what it is, it certainly looks promising.

I wannna see this film. I'm a girl with imagination!
