Movie Info

Two teenage girls are in love with the same boy, but the results are a long, long way from Betty and Veronica in this over-the-top horror comedy based on a manga by Shungiku Uchida. Monami (Yukie Kawamura) is a pretty new girl at school who quickly develops a furious crush on Mizushima (Takumi Saito), a handsome boy with charisma as impressive as his hair. Mizushima already has a steady girl, Kieko (Eri Otoguro), much to Monami's chagrin, but that doesn't stop her from giving the boy of her dreams a box of special chocolates for Valentine's Day. What Mizushima doesn't know is just how special those candies are -- Monami is a vampire, and the chocolates are filled with blood, which sends him into a psychedelic state and turns him into a fellow creature of the night. Monami asks the newly-undead Mizushima to be her soul mate, but this doesn't sit well with Kieko, and when a fight between the two rivals leaves Kieko dead, that's not enough to stop her. Kieko's father is a scientist doing bizarre experiments in reanimation, and he resurrects his daughter using some spare body parts, turning her into a powerful warrior who goes toe to toe against the vampire who stole her man. Kyuketsu Shojo tai Shojo Furanken (aka Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl) was directed by Yoshihiro Nishimura (the special effects artist behind the cult favorite Tokyo Gore Police) in collaboration with Naoyuki Tomomatsu. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Kyûketsu Shôjo tai Shôjo Furanken (Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl)

All Critics (1)

It is a postmodern chaos of colour, cuteness and cruelty - but it is also a flat, one-note, substance-free affair whose unrestrained violence-and-vibrancy schtick has already been done to death by other recent Japanese splatterpunk.

Audience Reviews for Kyûketsu Shôjo tai Shôjo Furanken (Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl)

Really cringeably awful, but that's part of its charm. I don't think I will be looking for a repeat anytime soon, but enjoyed it and added an extra star for introducing me to metal mouse in the end credits. Now there's a song to drive you crazy (needless to say I was all over it on iTunes by the time it finished playing)

A teenage Japanese schoolboy gets caught in a love-triangle from hell as he has a centuries old vampire and a stuck-up brat competing for his affections which eventually desends into a bloodbath involving both students and teachers. As fun as it was it could have been a lot stronger overall, and to be honest the humour was just a tad bit too silly for me. It definitely delivers blood and crazy creative gore effects which is the films main asset. The story could have been enhanced a bit more as it's very thin, even for a film like this and the characters needed more development. Still worth watching for lovers of Japanese splatter films, but I didn't find it near the best of them.

This movie is over the top. What I thought to be a old school 1950's horror movie turned out to be a Japanese Blood Gore Film, nothing short of wild and unreal. Comical at most points. More blood in the first 5 minutes then is in the American Red Cross Blood donors Bus. This film is just crazy, above a vampire girl who moves to a new town and falls in love with a boy who is loved by another and she is made into the Frankenstein girl, No one can ever match Japanese Special effects, 3 1/2 stars.
