Let’s not kid ourselves; The Machine Girl falls well into the category of Grindhouse, with big sloppy doses of gore. So, besides judging on the amount of gore, we are also judging on the amount of shameless violence (preferably involving plenty of gore) and the personal code of vigilante justice (most definitely needing plenty of gore). The fact that this little gem has the novelty of being relatively new and from Japan is just extra whipped cream and cherries on a blood-soaked dessert. This film may not be for the squeamish or those with a strict sense of anatomy, but it is gruesome fun for those of us who enjoy a splatterfest.
