A twisted double feature of inspired hyper-gore and pop-culture curios from Japan: Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl (dir. Yoshihiro Nishimura & Naoyuki Tomomatsu, 2009, 84min) and 964 Pinocchio (Shozin Fukui, 1991, 97min). The former is a tragic love triangle with zero production value and cartoonish amounts of neck-blood fountain action. Description of the latter, courtesy of IMDB: “Pinocchio 964, lobotomised cyborg sex slave, is thrown out onto the street by his owners because of his inability to maintain an erection. He is befriended by a criminally insane, memory-wiped, homeless girl. Meanwhile, the corporate entity who manufactured and sold him plots to kill him because of his malfunction.”
