Cast: Miki Mizuno, Hirotsugu Imamura, Mitsuki Koga
In a near-future, post-apocalyptic Japan, Tokyo has become a wind swept desert while Yokahama City has been taken over by gangs of vicious criminals, the worst among them being the notorious ‘Jack Brothers’. Butchered and left for dead by Jack and his gang after being tortured and forced to witness the murder of her husband and infant child, Milly awakes in a deserted hospital to find herself miraculously alive and now in possession of a partly mechanized body. With nothing left to live for and driven only by revenge, Milly vows to hunt down the killers and to settle the score. First learning the art of sword combat from a master swordsman, she eventually embarks on a journey that can only lead her to straight to Hell.
Ultra gory mindless revenge yarn about Milly who ends up near dead during a gang attack, she also loses her baby and husband. After her body as been rebuild she goes to seek revenge on the people responsible. Running in at just over 40 minutes the film throws plot and character development out the window, it feels like an FX showreel following Milly in a battle against the gangs 4 or so members. Fun for the undemanding viewer some of the FX are very cheesy but for most part they're highly bloody, recommended to people who like Braindead styled over the top cartoon gore.
