Vampire Girl Meets Where the Dead Fear to Tread

“It’s that time of year again horror fiends.  A time when our admittedly odd sensibilities overtake the nation.  When stores have motion activated demons, and buying fake blood is so very easy.”  So has said M.R. Gott before on his blog WHERE THE DEAD FEAR TO TREAD.  And so today the countdown to Halloween begins with, for me at least, a review of the Japanese film and all around fest of laughs, gore, and bad taste, VAMPIRVAMPIRE GIRL VS. FRANKENSTEIN 3E GIRL VS. FRANKENSTEIN GIRL.  Nevertheless there are redeeming qualities, especially in the acting ability of Yukie Kawamura as vampire girl Monami who she plays with a deadpan charm reminiscent of Carolyn Jones as Morticia in the original mid-60s TV version of THE ADDAMS FAMILY.  At least, that is, if Morticia had been a Japanese schoolgirl.

Long-time readers may recall that a similar review appeared here on October 28 last year (with a follow up October 29, exclusive to this site), but this time, for those who might have missed it, there’s ample opportunity to search for the film and find your own copy.  I wouldn’t recommend it though for the family children, the overly queasy, or the harder-nosed of the politically correct.  Or maybe any of the politically correct.  For which, to find out why, amble over to M.R. Gott’s site by pressing here, scroll down, and look to the right.
