VAMPIRE GIRL VS FRANKENSTEIN GIRL Coming to UK DVD
From Yoshihiro Nishimura, the man behind the outrageousness of TOKYO GORE POLICE and THE MACHINE GIRL comes this crazed response to both TWILIGHT and LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, a film that consistently overwhelms the viewer in its sheer dementia…
Based on a manga by Shungiku Uchida, VAMPIRE GIRL VS FRANKENSTEIN GIRL (Kyuketsu Shojo tai Shojo Furanken, 2008) will be released on DVD (£15.99) in the UK by 4Digital Media on 15th March, 2010.
Handsome high school student Mizushima (Takumi Saito) receives Valentines Day chocolates from a new student, Monami Arukado (Yukie Kawamura). Little did he know that the chocolates contained traces of Monami’s vampire blood. He gets infected from eating them and Monami confesses that she wants to live with him forever as vampires. Meanwhile, Mizushima decides that he wants to fully become a vampire with Monami’s help. Keiko Furano (Eri Otoguro), Mizushima’s girlfriend, sees the two on the school rooftop kissing and in a state of hysteria, attempts to throw Monami off the roof but falls off herself instead.
Keiko dies but her father, Kenji Furano (Kanji Tsuda), the mad scientist, resurrects her as Franken girl. Thus begins a deadly combat between Franken Keiko and Vampire Monami in the name of love. As we all know, this kind of Vampire vs. Frankenstein conflict can only be solved by fighting, beating, stabbing, chewing, clawing and a showdown high atop Tokyo Tower!

About 4Digital Media
4Digital Media Ltd (formerly ILC Entertainment Ltd) is a UK based independent DVD distributor with an extensive and diverse catalogue covering many genres including feature films, sport, health & fitness, children’s, special interest and music. Our objective is to continue to expand the catalogue with quality programming and to create dedicated sub labels for a few of the more popular genres. The first of these sub labels is 4DigitalAsia.
4Digital Asia specializes in Asian cult films in their original language with English sub-titling. Fans will be pleased to know that 4Digital Asia is very fortunate to have secured the theatrical, TV and DVD rights to two of the biggest franchises to come out of Japan in recent years; DEATH NOTE & DEATH NOTE –THE LAST NAME and the spin off film, L CHANGE THE WORLD and now the 20TH CENTURY BOYS trilogy which many fans believe will be even more popular than DEATH NOTE. Having six major films to work with over a period of 18 months is a major achievement for a company that has only just entered the Asian film market and they provide 4Digital Media a solid platform to develop the 4Digial Asia brand over the next few years. Other dedicated sub-labels will follow soon.
