Storyline

On her sixteenth birthday, Rin (Yumi Sugimoto), a bullied, timid schoolgirl witnesses her parents killed by fearful, anti-mutant humans. Rins dormant mutant abilities are awakened and she is driven away from her hometown by an angry mob. She meets other mutants called 'Hiruko', and teams up with Rei (Yuko Takayama), a hardarse, rebellious type, and Yoshie (Suzuka Morita), a cute nurse who is conflicted about killing humans. Tak Sakaguchi plays Kasagari, an evil mutant who has an impotent sword growing out of his stomach. Originally trained by Kasagari, the three girls turn against him and his drive to turn Japan into a human-free zone and must fight him and his other loyal mutant minions. In the tradition of 'Machine Girl' and 'Tokyo Gore Police'. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Perverse, gory and splattery
29 July 2019 | by VartiainenSee all my reviews

Mutant Girls Squad is the story of Rin (Yumi Sugimoto), a girl born a mutant, who ends up an orphan and being hunted by those that want to exterminate her kind from the face of the Earth. Luckily she meets some fellow mutants. Unluckily, those mutants hold some pretty out there values and opinions. Expect a lot of fake blood to be spilled.

The directors of this film have worked on such films as The Machine Girl, Azumi and RoboGeisha, and it shows. This is a gore fest of a film, filled to the brim with flying body parts, high pressure blood and needlessly graphic body horror imagery. All in good fun, of course, and if you're a fan of the genre, you're going to love the exploitation on show here.

I also had no real problems with the story. The three main girls had distinct personalities, the setting was suitably bat guano insane, and the action was fun to witness. The main bad guy was pretty cringy, but in a way that oddly fit the whole aesthetic of the film.

That being said, this is probably the most perverse Japanese gore film I've seen, and I've seen some good ones. There are films that might have had more private parts on display, but even they were more... I want to say tasteful, but that doesn't really apply with any of these films. Less... childishly blatant, perhaps?

Still, if you've liked, for example The Machine Girl or Tokyo Gore Police or Ichi the Killer, this is definitely worth checking out. It's not quite as good as those three, but it's still a high octane experience unlike anything seen in Western media.
