Delightful over-the-top violent revenge-thriller with, literally, geysers of blood every minute of so. It's like the fight scene in Kill Bill, but without any subtext. The CGI was unneeded, but this was really fun, in a warped way.

"Machine Girl" by Yojimbo

The brother of a high school girl is bullied to death by the son of a Yakuza and wreaks her revenge using a prosthetic arm fashioned from a machine gun. Gore can work.

If you do, prepare to rupture something as, over the course of 90 minutes you will experience: tempura battered forearms, digit-spiced sushi, dismemberment through tripping, A DRILL BRA, ninjas in tracksuits, sapphic arm-wrestling, necrophilic deflowering, bullet flaying, vomiting intestines and gallons and gallons of geysering blood.

Good writing, good performances, good CG and good taste are not The Machine Girls’ forte. What it does have going for it is an abyssal black sense of humour and a penchant for treading the line between the disgusting and the absurd (avoiding, as it does so, the pitfalls of some more extreme Japanese horror offerings). The story, such as it is, revo...
