Excellent call, Duck. Amazing little film - great combination of live and digital F/X, beautifully (if luridly) shot, on HD, and genuinely over-the-top and bizarre. The opening chainsaw duel? Inspired insanity. Will add this one to my permanent collection.

If you haven't seen this yet, Jack (and anyone else), you should rent it immediately. If the title is in any way appealing, know that it's exactly what you'd expect, and a very good version of it. Sincerely weird low-budget filmmaking!

Even more bonkers but, sadly, not as enjoyable, is Vampire Girl Vs Frankenstein Girl, from some of the same creative team. It goes further over the top and doesn't really work. Personally I'm not much of a massive fan of either film, and I preferred Machine Girl.

I like how they take the idea of weaponry and gore and just run with it towards absurdity and then keep on going, compared to say our lame torture porn movies like SAW or even the Slasher franchises that stay so unbelievably believable. I mean SAW went from a Hacksaw to Rube Goldberg stuff but that is relatively similar, when you could do something like...feet stuck in cement and hands super glued to the tailpipe of the Space shuttle on the launching pad counting down to lift-off.
Another gem I really like is God of Gamblers Return 2 (sic). Super- human gambling powers in a revenge film. Yes gambling powers. Like, having to use cards made of lead so that super gamblers cannot see thru them and change the cards telekinetically. They use playing cards as weapons, dice, chips, all that stuff is in play. Yun Fat and Tony Leung and maybe Andy Lau. The women are also stunning looking.

It's an amazingly sick vision, and the whole body modification thing is quite striking, visually. The gal credited as the Aligator Girl takes the concept of Vagina Dentata so far overboard that it'd give David Cronenberg nightmares, but what I REALLY want to know is whether there really is a quad-amputee woman in the piece, or if the blade- limbed character was a purely digital creation. Some of the non- action shots of her were of an order of magnitude better than the other digital work, including the rest of that scene.

Might be worth a look...

Uh...
I, of course, know perfectly well what week it is. However, most folks I know who have seen this are far less excited about it than you are.

I've not exactly been skimping on horror viewing this week, anyway. I also just checked out the first episode of "Forever Knight" on Hulu. A TV series about a vampire cop doesn't have to be stupid. In fact, if I am hired to write a reboot, I would be delighted by the challenge of coming up with a credible scenario in which such a creature exists... sort of like how, when Isaac Asimov was asked about "plutonium-186", he replied, "There's no such thing as plutonium-186, but just to show you what a science fiction writer can do, I'll write a story about plutonium-186," and the result was his novel The Gods Themselves . It could have been an intriguing continuing statement not only about vampires, but the absurdity and messiness of life.

They made it stupid anyway.
(Yes, yes, I know, IT, INSTBG. My curiosity got the better of me.)
