“Meiko Kaji driving a little motorcycle is adorable, but Meiko Kaji in her broad-brimmed black hit is one of the true marvels of the cinema. ”
-- Sean Gilman, Letterboxd
Starring Meiko Kaji (LADYSNOWBLOOD) and directed by genre veterans Yasuharu Hasebe (MASSACRE GUN, RETALIATION) and Toshiya Fujita (LADY SNOWBLOOD), the STRAY CAT ROCK series features a psychedelic mix of girl gangs, bikers, sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll and plenty of ass-kicking. It’s all captured in a delirious mash-up of pop-art aesthetics including split screens, freeze frames, frenetic editing, and dizzying angles, making these films a riotous joy from beginning to end. In MACHINE ANIMAL, intense rivalry is once again the focus, with two gangs pursuing LSD pushers who are looking to move a hot score!
