YesAsia Editorial Description

Machine Girl director Iguchi Noboru, special effects guru Nishimura Yoshihiro (Tokyo Gore Police, and actor-stuntman Sakaguchi Tak (Versus) join forces for the first time as the directors of Mutant Girl Squad. Combining the styles of the three directors' previous works, Mutant Girls Squad takes the words "bad taste" as an aesthetic approach and pushes the boundary of splatter action to the limit. It starts off with arms coming off, followed by heads decapitated and eyeballs being popped out. No matter what kind of inventive kills the three directors pull off to rid of the cast of their low-budget take on X-men, rest assured that they will all literally involve gallons and gallons of blood.

15-year-old Rin (Sugimoto Yumi) leads a miserable life at school as a bullying victim. At her 16th birthday party, her right arm suddenly transforms, and she ends up accidentally killing all the guests, as well as her loving parents. Rin soon finds out that she's a member of a near-extinct race of mutants that can turn their body parts into deadly weapons. Rin joins a resistance movement of fellow mutants that plan to use their deadly weapons to fight the threat of extinction.

Professional Review of "Mutant Girls Squad (Blu-ray + DVD) (US Version)"

April 26, 2012

This professional review refers to Mutant Girls Squad (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
Fans of Japanese splatter have reason to celebrate with the arrival on DVD of Sushi Typhoon's Mutant Girls Squad, a film which combines the talents of three of the finest (and craziest) directors working in the genre: Iguchi Noboru (Machine Girl), Nishimura Yoshihiro (Tokyo Gore Police) and Sakaguchi Tak (Yakuza Weapon). Playing out like a kind of absurdist, gore soaked version of X-Men as with most made for the West Sushi Typhoon outings, the film enjoyed a successful run at international festivals, including Stiges, where it won Best Motion Picture in the Midnight X-Treme section.

The film is split into 3 sections, the first of which is Sakaguchi Tak's Revelation, with Sugimoto Yumi as Rin, a 15 year old girl who is bullied at school and suffers from mysterious pains in her arm. Everything changes on her 16th birthday, when her arm suddenly transforms into a vicious looking metallic claw, and her father reveals himself to her as a bizarre mutant with growths on his chest and crotch. After soldiers with machine gun noses turn up at her house and kill her parents, she goes on a bloody rampage through the town before meeting up with another mutant called Rei (Takayama Yuko), whose head and arms are covered with razor sharp scales. Rei leads her to an underground group of mutants led by weirdo transvestite Kisaragi (Sakaguchi Tak), and discovers that she is part of the Hiruko clan, fighting for survival against humankind.

This is followed by Iguchi Noboru's Revolution, in which Rin and Rei, along with an octopus-tentacled cosplay nurse called Yoshie (Morita Suzuka) are sent on a mission to assassinate a military general who heads up an anti-Hiruko squad. In the process they come up against a government secret weapon, and Rin comes to realise the insane depths of Kisaragi's plan, which leads into the final chapter, Nishimura Yoshihiro's Rebellion.

Even by Sushi Typhoon standards, Mutant Girls Squad is a particularly insane piece of work, and it's fair to say that it really does feel like the result of a heavy drinking session involving its three directors. It's almost impossible to do justice to the amazingly creative level of gore and mutant madness on show, and without wishing to spoil any of the berserk surprises in store, the film basically works as a cavalcade of weird imagery and jaw-dropping misuses of the human form, including, but certainly not limited to breast swords, fire spitting wounds, a grotesque belly dancer, and of course, an ass chainsaw. Punctuated only by moments of low-brow humour and camp melodrama, the well-choreographed carnage really is non-stop, the film spilling an incalculable amount of blood, though as with most of the directors'sworks, despite some scenes of degenerate sexuality, there's nothing truly offensive or mean spirited here - at least for viewers happy to see heads removed and pulverised at a rate of several per minute.

Needless to say, this is all very much par for the Sushi Typhoon course, though what really surprises here is how well the film hangs together. Whereas the premise and the presence of 3 helmers might well have suggested random tangents and wacky subplots, the film is actually one of the more coherent of its kind, and does, for the most part, make sense. This is of no small benefit, and it lifts the film above some of its more senseless brethren, with a plot which just about manages to hold the action together. Whilst the film is a low budget affair, the production values are also somewhat above average for the form, with some stunningly over the top and imaginative makeup and awesomely impressive splatter.

Mutant Girls Squad really is a simple recommendation - for fans of the form, it's an absolute must see, and is definitely one of the best, not to mention the wildest, Japanese splatter-fests of the last few years. Others should probably approach with caution, though any viewers seeking blood geysers, flying body parts and mad but disturbingly cute mutations are unlikely to leave disappointed.
