Freak of the Week: Machine Girl

by Tony Nigro

Noboru Iguchi’s Machine Girl on DVD certainly delivers on its fetish of a promise: a one-armed schoolgirl and her MILF sidekick whooping a whole lot of ass.  Although my taste for culty ultraviolence has waned over the years, I appreciated the movie’s absurd take on snowballing revenge — that is, revenge upon revenge upon revenge.  It plays out as a minor step toward the climax, when our heroes battle the Super Mourner Gang, comprised of parents of some of the children they killed.

Machine Girl is available on DVD from Tokyo Schock.
