Can't hardly wait for the big-budget Hollywood remake, 25 December 2005
Author: lazarillo from Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile

In the past few years Hollywood has remade any number of Japanese movies ("Ringu", "Ju-On", "Dark Water", etc.) I for one can't wait until they get around to this one. This movie is set in a VERY strict secondary school where the evil vice principal for some reason is dressed up as a face-painted court jester and gets off on torturing his students. Fortunately, the students are protected by an anonymous super-heroine, Keko Mask, who dresses in a red mask, a red cape, and literally nothing else. She fights the bad guys with high-wire karate moves, delivering the coup de grace by wrapping her creamy thighs around their head and snapping their neck, or even more hilariously, dazzling them with her genitalia which in a parody of Japanese optical fogging glows like a high beam headlight. The evil vice principal suspects that Keko Mask is somebody at the school, so he devotes his time to strip-searching the females students and staff trying to find someone who "fits the measurements". This movie is such a hip satire that the school even has a lecherous American teacher (although he strangely teaches art rather than English and is played by an obviously Asian actor).

Some may be a little put off by the unhealthy Japanese fascination with uniformed school girls, but judging from all the obvious breast implants on display I doubt any of these actresses were actually underage. In fact, the youngest looking girl is the one who plays the adult guidance counselor (and who for some reason is dressed in spandex and a headband like a Nipponese version of Olivia Newton-John circa 1982). Besides, this movie is paragon of good taste compared to some of the animated and live-action "tentacle rape" movies of recent years. In fact, this movie has a fun, anarchic spirit to it that would probably appeal more to actual teenagers than adult perverts. It's certainly a lot more fun than teen-oriented movies Hollywood has been churning out the last fifteen or twenty years. Maybe Hollywood should take a lesson here . . .
