Highschool bully Keiko (Eri Otoguro) claims classmate Jyugon (Takumi Saito) as her boyfriend, simply because she thinks she's the prettiest girl in school and he should be happy to be with her. Thing is, Jyugon also attracts the attention of Monami (Yukie Kawamura), who is a girl more to his liking, but she also has a problem: She is a vampire, and in order to be with her, she has to turn him as well. Keiko is furious that Jyugon spends so much time with Monami, so she finds out her secret and tries to expose her - but Monami simply kills everybody off who knows her secret. Ultimately, the two girls go one-on-one over Jyugon, which ends with Keiko falling from a roof to her death.

Now this would have been a fitting finale for the story, but this is where the fun really starts in this movie: You see, Keiko's father Furano (Kanji Tsuda) is a direct descendant of Dr Frankenstein, and he continues the family tradition of bringing the dead back to life ... only he's not very good at it, and while his serial killer assistant, the schoolnurse Midori (Sayaka Kametani), provides him with corpse after corpse, he might succeed in chopping them up and putting them back together in very creative ways, but he has no idea how to provide his creations with the spark of life. Then though he gets his hands on some of Monami's vampire blood, blood that can even give life to the screws he uses to screw up his creatures.

Of course, using Monami's blood, it doesn't take much of an effort to bring Keiko back to life, and with superior bodyparts, too ... and now that she's back, Keiko wants revenge - and the rest of the film is filled with Keiko and Monami engaging in combat, and the fight gets more and more bizarre along the way, until their fight is decided in Monami's favour on top of Tokyo Tower.

Monami walks away with Jyugon, but she has forgotten there's still Keiko's father Furano to deal with. Sure, he has died earlier in the proceedings, but he has been brought back to life as an extremely bizarre creature ...

 

Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl is fun in a party movie way: It's got plenty of gore, bizarre creatures made from bodyparts, outrageous fights, macabre details, and it's all done tongue-in-cheek - and yet the film is by far not as good as it could have been. Problem here is that the filmmakers put too much trust into the bizarre ideas derived from the film's manga source and don't really try to improve on them by giving the film its proper atmosphere, or by putting too much creativity into their filmmaking. Instead it's just a by-the-numbers bizarre body horror comedy, when it could have been something really wild and eye-opening.

At least the movie's entertaining though.
