Yesterday, at an anime convention, I picked up a DVD of La Blue Girl: Revenge of the Sex Demon King, which is volume 1 of a live action remake of the classic hentai anime, La Blue Girl.
The film is awesome. It is a B-horror/softcore porn/martial arts film which features plot inconsistencies, continuity errors, tons of cliches, bad acting, even worse special effects, and some awesome girl-on-girl action.
Rather than describing the story (come on, nobody watches this sort of film for the story), I'll just say that it involves "women's college" students (riiight...), demonic possession, tentacles, and some costumes which I would describe as "Ninja hookers from the year 3000."
My only complaint about the film itself is that there is no techno music to underscore the martial arts scenes. Now that would have made the perfect movie!
The presentation of the DVD itself is nothing to write home about though. Other than the subtitles, there are no special features (unless you consider ads before the film to be special features.) Also, the picture quality is not quite what I am used to seeing on DVD. But these downfalls are more than made up for by the value of the film itself, which I am sure I will be watching repeatedly for years to come (Yeah, I'm pretty pathetic...)
If you're a fan of late night cable movies, MST3K fodder, martial arts cheese, and beautiful Japanese women, this is the movie for you. I can't wait to see volumes 2 and 3.
