There is something to be said about 'splatter' films and, in particular, the Japanese side of them. They take a specific taste in cult film to enjoy as they truly embrace the ridiculousness of their plots and the extensiveness of their gore. In the case of "Samurai Princess," writer and director Kengo Kaji (known for writing "Tokyo Gore Police") goes for an even weirder, if not similarly themed, film. Even for a splatter film, "Samurai Princess" seems a bit weak overall with its nonsensical plot and often over emphasized sexual overtones.
In another version of history, Japan is still in a feudal like state with villages and anarchist like rule. There are cyborg like warriors that wander the land driven insane by their inability to cope with their torn existence. When a group of 12 young girls are raped and slaughtered, a mad scientist with the help of a spiritual woman creates a samurai princess from the body of one of the slain and puts the souls of her fallen sisters inside of her. Armed with a plethora of weaponry, she teams up with a guitar wielding nomadic solider and seeks revenge for the atrocity she endured.

|The shoulder. The most captivating of human features.|
|Believe it or not, there are a lot of body part piles just scattered throughout the forest in this film.|
