Have you heard of “J-Sploitation?” It’s a unique form of Japanese exploitation movie that looks closely at the various aspects of the country’s culture. Especially its treatment of young women by showing women always kicking serious ass.
Speaking of ass, here is the first reason I love this genre:
1- Zombie Ass: Toilet Of The Dead!
The most crap-tastic zombie movie ever to emerge from Japan’s cinema sewer is finally upon us.
Wracked with guilt over the suicide of her sister, young karate student Megumi accompanies a group of older friends on a trip into the woods.
Things start to go badly when they find a parasitical worm inside a fish they catch. Which turns them into zombies that release toxic gas!
So much drama! So much violence! So MANY Zombies! Watch the wild trailer:
Here is the second reason I love this genre:
2 -Vampire Girl Vs. Frankenstein Girl
This is the terrifying story of two classic monsters re-imagined as super hot – and extremely lethal – Japanese school girls.
Gore reigns supreme in this “blood-cake cavalcade of carnage” that was chosen as the Audience Award winner at the 2009 NY Asian Film Festival.
Check out the mind-blowing trailer:
That not enough? Well, the title of this next movie is another reason I love this genre…It’s the Citizen Kane of “J-Sploitation”:
3- The Machine Girl
This is everything you want from the J-sploitation. Pretty teen Ami tries to stop a gang from assaulting her brother. Instead, they torture her and hack her arm off!
Ami escapes, barely alive, and is taken in by the owners of a machine shop who build her a customized, bullet-spewing arm. From that point, the quest for revenge is on in earnest, even against the woman who has a machine-gun bra!
Don’t worry, The Machine Girl delivers on every single thing you want: bloodshed, exploitation, and REVENGE!
Check out this amazing trailer – and enjoy this amazingly inventive and gore-tastic genre of film:
