Product Description

Action, comedy and splatter: times three! For the first time ever, Japanese cult filmmakers Noboru Iguchi (Robo-Geisha, The Machine Girl), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police, Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl) and Tak Sakaguchi (Death Trance, Versus, Yoroi: Samurai Zombie) have joined forces to bring you three times the heart-pounding action, three times the jaw-dropping comedy and three times the head-exploding splatter of your average action / horror / comedy film! It's a three-times-larger Mutant Action Extravaganza, filled with so much outrageousness that it took three directors to bring it to you!

A Nice Ham ala Chain-Saw - review: Mutant Girls Squad (2010)
Tak Sakaguchi (Director), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Director)

Where does one begin with the DVD release of this film called "Mutant Girls Squad"?

It isn't right to call it an exploitation-film like an LSD teenage sin and violence movie of the US in the 1960s, or gore-pornography like the slasher films the United States of the 1980s. In many ways it has a kind of demented glee rooted in a postmodern, cusp of the Apocalypse, Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol.

And it is very, very Japanese.

All I can say is the sexual repression underlying the polite conformity of Japanese culture with its tea-ceremony, origami, paper palaces and yellow, green, and red lines painted on the hallway floors of schools for students to follow from class to class with expensive enrichment tutors hired by anxious parents for their kindergartners must be a thin crust built on an emotional volcano on the verge of a detonation that could pop another moon from the Pacific into the Earth's orbit!

What is it about teenage middle and high school girls in sailor suits that so intimidates and sexually terrorizes the adult males of Japan? How is it these perfect porcelain little creatures are considered the martial-arts equals of the Avengers, Bruce Lee and the entire sword wielding career of the 7 Samurai?

The story is simple. A little halfbreed girl whose father is a mutant and her mother is a saint watches her parents machine-gunned by the Japanese equivalent of a S&M Homeland Security SWAT team. They capture her to torture her in the name of science but she is rescued by a gang of renegade teenage sailor suit wearing mutant girls. They train her to be one of them. And what are they?

You learn something new every day. For example, I'd heard that the Japanese were in the midst of their own `splatter movement,' but I've specifically avoided the films for awhile. Oh, it isn't that I don't appreciate a good splatter; truth is, I probably appreciate one as much as the next. I think the drawback with a good splatter movie is that its success or failure with a audience largely depends on the mood of that crowd: you have to WANT to experience a good splatter movie, not simply discover one all on its own merits. When you do that, you're as likely to turn one off as you are to finish, and that may not bode well for MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD.

This `splatter' is a bit of a disaster, which it's clearly intended to be. Don't go into it looking for any of it to make any real sense, and you're liable to be modestly entertained, much in the same way that you can't turn away from watching an automobile accident happening right before your eyes. It's glorious mayhem - all for the sake of pure nihilism - and I've no doubt the crowd who embraces these pictures will find plenty to embrace here ... even if that's only embracing the lovely ladies at the center of this cinematic catastrophe.

Rin (played by the doe-eyed Yumi Sugimoto) turns sixteen, but her `sweet sixteen' is interrupted by forces of Japanese defense showing up and taking her into custody. Why? Because she's a Hiruko, i.e. a mutant - only one of many being held secretly against their will - and she's a danger to all mankind ... until, that is, she can master the use of her specific mutant abilities. Her specific abilities? Well, she sprouts an arm that's part-claw, part-sitar (or something) which can be used as a lethal weapon.

Basically the movie has 3 directors and split into 3 episodes.

episode 1 - about Rin (Yumi Sugimoto), who learns her true identity as a hiruko (mutant clan) girl.
episode 2 - Rin joins the mutant clan and learns to unleash her powers
episode 3 - Yoshie (Suzuka Morita) joins Rin and convinced Rei (Yuko Takayama) to fight back against the clan to help the innocent people instead of killing them.

Bonus short movie about Yoshie (Suzuka Morita) who learns she's a Hiruko.

in each episode there are some bizarre killing scenes with shooting blood and decapitations and all sorts of dismemberments of all types. The whole movie is done in a comedic way, so even with all the violence you can't help but laugh at some of the scenes. Just hilarious and the ending theme done by the Noodles (Japanese girl band) somehow fits the movie well, call Mellow Metallica. Overall, I give it a just watch it score. I think you'd like it.

"Mutant Girls Squad" is an entry into the Japanese subgenre of inexpensive, campy, and incredibly gory B-movies that gained widespread interest with The Machine Girl (I'll bet there's a shorter term for it, but dang if I know what it is). This flick's apparently among the more obscure ones, but jeez, you'd think that any other movie would have to make a tremendous effort to be campier and bloodier than this one. The tongue-in-cheek, off-the-edge-of-reality approach is the only way such ultraviolence is palatable for me, and in this way, "MGS" is relatively fun...to an extent. The story starts off strong but degenerates into a take-it-or-leave-it thing, and neither the action content nor the special effects sustained themselves for me over time.

The story: on her sixteenth birthday, Rin (Yumi Sugimoto, "Engine Squadron Go-onger") sees her parents killed and discovers that she possesses a deadly power. Intercepted by a group of young girl mutants led by a cross-dressing samurai (Tak Sakaguchi, Versus), Rin is conflicted by the group's intent to wage a hate-fueled war on the society that's antagonized them.

The movie's tone is uneven, but for the most part is relatively goofy. The abilities of the mutant girls are roundly ludicrous (e.g. chainsaw butt, katana breasts - and those are the more sensible ones), characters have slapstick reactions to being sliced and shredded, most of the setups to violence are silly, and there's an utterly delightful cosplay nurse bouncing around with the ability to turn her face into a trunk and her arms into tentacles (Suzuka Morita, "Samurai Squadron Shinkenger").
