Film / The Machine Girl

A 2007 Japanese Film about a very cute college girl, Ami, who seeks vengeance for her slain little brother, in the most gruesome and awesome ways imaginable. Yoshihiro Nishimura did the gore effects for this movie before going on to direct Tokyo Gore Police.

This film provides examples of:

  • Defeat Means Friendship: The only way for Ami to gain Miki's trust is through an arm wrestling challenge in what Miki had defined a "Battle between people who have lost beloved ones". While it's not exactly an official therapeutic procedure, it seems to work.
  • High-Pressure Blood: So much so that it makes one wonder how those who aren't killed instantly manage to do anything else.
