Machine Girl:
Sneak Peek At Iguchi's Gorefest


Noboru Iguchi's MACHINE GIRL
(KATAUDE MASHIN GÂRU)

Noboru Iguchi's Machine Girl (Kataude mashin gâru) trailer has been floating around You Tube and Facebook. Some think it's real, others a spoof. It was my friend Greg who first sent me the trailer. I couldn't just let it be and had to do some research.



Oh, it's real. It's gory. And it's hilarious.

Here's some info for you:
•The screenplay for Machine Girl was written and directed by Noburo Iguchi.

•Yoshihiro Nishimura is responsible for the movie's special effects, special make-up effects, and molds.

•Yûji Shimomura is its action choreographer. (Shimomura himself directed Death Trance.)

The movie stars Yashiro Minase as Ami:




•Here's a synopsis for Machine Girl from the Fangoria article "Fever Dreams returns to Japan for MACHINE GIRL":

"Machine Girl is about a teenager named Ami who sets out for revenge on a gang of bullies who tortured her little brother to death. She winds up losing an arm along the way, and replaces it with a high-powered gun [see the pre-production still below], à la Rose McGowan in Grindhouse.

But she doesn't stop at one limb; Ami continues to lose body parts and replace them with more weapons (and tempura!) including the drill bra (doriru bura) seen in the pre-production still (prior to making the actual working props) below. (courtesy of Yoshihiro Nishimura.]"



Here are some newly release stills from the film which releases in 2008.





Production Company: Fever Dreams
