Good things come to those who wait, or so they say, and our patience has just been rewarded with an exclusive first look at the trailer for Noboru Igushi's Machine Girl. We've covered this one extensively over the past couple months, and for good reason. It brings together many of the key behind the scenes talents involved with cult Japanese titles like Death Trance and Meatball Machine and turns them loose on a revenge story revolving around a Japanese schoolgirl seeking revenge against the gang that tortured her brother to death and cost her her own arm. But no worries ... that arm has now been replaced by a high powered machine gun. A rough trailer was shown to visitors of the American Film Market but that cut wasn't quite polished enough in the minds of the producers and so was never made available to the public. The first proper trailer was completed just yesterday and you'll find it in the ScreenAnarchy Video Player, embedded just below the break!

For the look of this, i hope it's cheesy fun instead of just cheesy but not fun at all.

DEAD-ALIVE , EVIL DEAD 2 and THE BABYCART films continue to make their presence felt, in a good way.This one looks like a lot of fun.

And I want that poster.

This may have been produced in Japan but it's financed largely with US money, Logboy, that's why the English in the trailer. It was prepared by the people at Fever Dreams, which is a branch of Media Blasters.

amazing. What's Japanese for 'Over the top?"

logboyDecember 8, 2007 4:47 PM

well... USA money or not, i'm really not impressed by the idea of intentionally melding cultures directly - i stayed well away from MB's last effort in that direction because of the level of influence money allows, but... i may have to take a certain amount of it in minimal doses for this and 'kite liberator', but once there's a trend or a drift towards financing projects or if companies in japan take USA-based possitive reactions as a way of influencing their domestic markets opinions of their work, i'm not at all keen to be associated with something which is more negative than any remake i can think of.

Definite winner. I want the DVD, NOW.

quote : [What’s Japanese for ‘Over the top?”]

Well, I would go for "kyookijimita" (きょうきじみた) (crazy) with
"kyôki"= wild, mad, excited with joy / extreme delight
"jimi"= a delicacy
"ta"= much, many, be thankfull for

That should cover it nicely :)

Can't wait! Looking forward to Machine Girl, Machete, and Red Princess Blues!

Okay... I felt a bit overwhelmed there... I didnt look at all the trailer in fact, I could stand after the first 20 secs... BUT GOT! SHE DOES GET A CHAINSAW! Waw, and that guillotine! that really looks like quality plastic!
I'm I in a low budget movies forum?
Cauz if it is the case, i'm sorry about all what I wrote, its a must guys you're right! More movies like that, more!

more,more,and fucking more.a chick ,with metal razor tits ,violence and gore .adrenalin and estrogen. what a great combination.i love to see chicks kickn ass in a major way. a true asian cinema fan from new york city.also i hate the fact that the U.S.A. keeps remaking good asian films and messing them up.U.S.A FILMAKERS creativity and filmaking isnot all that good anymore.thats why they keep copying all the asian film classics.i will not support that.any way Asian Films Rule the World.
