SCI-FI/HORROR

This low budget Korean entry is certainly an oddity, and has to garner bonus points as one of the most garishly outrageous film titles in many a year. The teenage hooker of the title is hacked apart then rebuilt as a death dealing cyborg. Unsavoury at times and incredibly short (clocking in at the hour mark), shot on grainy film and at times in murky light, the effects are basic at best but suitably outlandish. Mixing the wilfully obscure cyber punk of Japanese body horror classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man with the schlock horror comedy of Frankenhooker this is a weird film that makes up for its lack of narrative coherence with a twisted energy.
