Reboot of IGUCHI Noboru’s infamous Machine Girl (2008) produced by the man himself. This time directed by KOBAYASHI Yuki (Death Row Family), the film delivers in spades what the franchise has had to offer to date: juvenile and grotesque gory humor, inventive visual effects and women with chainsaw arms brutally killing nasty and colourful villains.

Reboot van IGUCHI Noboru’s beruchte actiespektakel Machine Girl (2008). IGUCHI treedt ditmaal op als producent en laat de regie over aan KOBAYASHI Yuki (Death Row Family), die de vaste ingrediënten van de franchise op treffende wijze presenteert: de humor is weer heerlijk kinderachtig en grotesk, de visuele effecten zijn inventief én gelukkig zijn er ook weer vrouwen met kettingzagen als armen, die op wrede wijze talloze kleurrijke slechteriken van kant maken.
