    Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl

    So my professor in ART496 Japanese Film, went over Kinji Fukasaku on Tuesday. Hes the director of Battle Royal and pretty much the main influence on why amazingly bloody and nonsensically violent movies are a staple of Japanese film. I always wondered why these kinds of films have such a cult following despite being...uh...amazingly gory.

    So remembering Tokyo Gore Police, a ridiculously cheesy, does not make any sense, why did I even bother, wat I don't even...?, kinda gore fest movie, I wondered if the director had come up with anything new. Low and behold, Vampire girl vs Frankenstein girl. Most definitely not my cup of tea, but hey, to each their own.

    My head exploded by the sheer volume of cheesiness while watching this mozzarella laden trailer, and yet the mess I made was nowhere near as bloody.

    Whoa, what class is that? Do you just watch movies?

    Yup, every Wednesday night we watch a movie that best describes an influential Japanese director's style, or a movie that represents the pinnacle of it's genre. We started with silent 20's films and now we're entering anime.

    Its pretty cool but theres a bunch of prerequisites. You might be able to take it for ACM since its a film class.
