Incredible Japanese cult action film about a pair of dueling Geisha assassins with deadly robotic parts!
“Violent, unrepentantly silly….loaded with wildly over the top set pieces… an explosion of cult excess…truly remarkable” - Twitch Film
“You can’t possibly take a film like this seriously… if you’re in the mood for some ass-kicking action mixed with elements of Austin Powers, Godzilla and even Tetsuo: The Iron Man you won’t come away disappointed.” - Horror Talk
“Much of the humour comes from the ridiculous upgrades that Yoshie and her sister receive on the path to becoming the ultimate Robogeishas, including armpit-based swords and breast-mounted canons” - Twitch Film
“Crazed, over the top creativity….really needs to be seen to be believed, more than living up to the promise of the trailer” - Beyond Hollywood
Official Selection - Fantastic Fest, Austin
Noboru Iguchi (THE MACHINE GIRL) is back with his frenzied mash-up of beautiful girls and their weaponized body parts. Two sisters end up battling in more ways than one for the affection of a wealthy young industrialist, who happens to be something of an evil genius bent on mass destruction. Training with his Geisha death squad, the sibling rivalry evolves along with their now mechanized flesh, sprouting machine guns, swords, and buzz saws from the most unlikely places. Japanese splatter guru Yoshihiro Nishimura (TOKYO GORE POLICE) is here to ramp up the outrageous effects. This ridiculous, over the top B-flick has so many WTF moments you’ll lose count, along with the number of weapons that fly out of the girls rear ends! ROBOGEISHA is a live action cartoon with a dash of melodrama to cleanse your palate between the mechanized mayhem!
