If the trailer for Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl looks familiar, that’s because it comes from director/special-effects guy Yoshihiro Nishimura, of Tokyo Gore Police/Samurai Princess fame. This time it’s like he isn’t even trying. The whole trailer is just constant blood spurting, exploding heads, and assorted weirdness, like a girl with a herpe on her lip. It looks like the Japanese answer to Seltzer-Friedberg. Which is a shame, because when I hear a movie called Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl I expect coherent storytelling.
Also, what the hell is this supposed to be? Blackface is one thing, but giant prosthetic lips and a big flat nose is taking it a step too far. I learned that at sensitivity training. I mean, what gives, Japan? It’s not like we’ve ever turned your people into an offensive stereo- what’s that? Hold on, someone’s sending me a picture… Oh right. Carry on then.
