Wiki

Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl (吸血少女対少女フランケン, Kyūketsu Shōjo tai Shōjo Furanken) is a 2009 Japanese gore film. It was directed by Yoshihiro Nishimura and Naoyuki Tomomatsu and premiered at the New York Asian Film Festival in June 2009. It is based on a manga of the same name by Shungiku Uchida.

The film is set in a typical Tokyo High School following the story of a perpetually teenage vampire named Monami (Yukie Kawamura) who falls for her classmate, Mizushima (Takumi Saito), who happens to already be the reluctant boyfriend to the vice-principal/science professor's daughter, Keiko (Eri Otoguro). The ensuing love triangle leads Keiko to seek the assistance of her father who, unbeknown to his daughter, moonlights as a Kabuki-clad mad scientist with the school nurse as his assistant. The pair experiment on students in the school basement hoping to discover the secret of reanimating corpses (akin to the work of Victor Frankenstein). Their hopes are answered when they discover a solution of Monami's blood holds the properties to bring life to dead body parts and inanimate objects.

The story begins to unfold after Mizushima carelessly accepts a honmei choco spiked with Monami's blood, causing him to become a half vampire. When Keiko discovers their secret, she attacks Monami but accidentally throws herself off the school roof in the process. Her premature death leads to her father using the blood solution to transform her into a vicious Frankenstein's monster. From then on Monami and Keiko battle each other in the pursuit of winning Mizushima's heart, regardless of his feelings towards either of them.

I am In Love With Japanese
From the creators of the fantastic “Tokyo Gore Police” and “Machine Girl”, comes another Japanese B-movie that brings bucket loads of gore, bloody arterial spray, macabre and outrageous themes, face-ripping effects and bizarre characters. Directors Yoshihiro Nishimura and Naoyuki Tomomatsu brings Japanese cinema fans the awkwardly titled “Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl” (2009, Kyūketsu Shōjo tai Shōjo Furanken) which is based on the Japanese manga (comic …
