Mutant Girls Squad

If you are anything like me and love both the Marvel-comics as well as japanese craziness like The Machine Girl and Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl, then you have also wondered what would happen if a crazy Japanese filmmaker got to do a version of X-Men. Now we no longer have to wonder!

In Mutant Girl Squad we meet Rin, a seemingly normal Japanese teenager, who’s life drastically changes on her 16th birthday as her mutant gene kicks in! Her arm transforms into a razor sharp claw and soon she is on the run from the mutant hating government forces.

She soon meets a group of other mutant girls who call themselves HILKO, a group who fight the oppressing government under the guidance of their crazy leader called Kisaragi. They all have different powers; one can transform her arms into swords, another can grow tentacles from her fingers and a third…well let’s save the last one as a surprise. Together they will seek revenge!

The film is directed by three of the biggest names in the genre; Noboru Iguchi (Machine Girl), Yoshishiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police) and Tak Sakaguchi (Versus) and is without a doubt one of the craziest FFF screenings ever. This film is totally insane, entertaining and playful and surely one of the highlights of this year’s festival.
