About 'Samurai Princess'

“Samurai Prin­cess” is a Japanese splatter film from 2009 that fits into the genre of gore films. The film was dir­ected by Kengo Kaji and tells the story of a samurai prin­cess who is trans­formed into a cyber­netic body after her cruel death and sets out on a bloody quest for revenge.

The film is char­ac­ter­ised by its extraordin­arily absurd and insane ideas, often in the realm of the bizarre and super­nat­ural. One of the first crazy ideas is the intro­duc­tion of the samurai prin­cess her­self: She is a cyber­netic being assembled from the body parts of various humans. Her head is on a mech­an­ical body with unique weapons and abil­ities.

Another mad idea is the pres­ence of mech­an­ical zom­bies cre­ated by an unscru­pu­lous sci­entist. These zombie creatures have blades instead of arms and fight against the samurai prin­cess. The bloody fights and extreme depic­tions of viol­ence are char­ac­ter­istic of the film and con­tribute to the grot­esque atmo­sphere.

Also not­able is the idea of a meat farm where humans are bred and used for various pur­poses. This cruel idea illus­trates the dark and dis­turbing world in which the samurai prin­cess moves.

Fur­ther­more, themes such as revenge, loss and the search for iden­tity are also dealt with in “Samurai Prin­cess”. The main char­acter has to con­front her own past and call to account those who have caused her suf­fering. These themes give the film a cer­tain emo­tional depth, which is, how­ever, often over­shad­owed by the abstruse and grot­esque ele­ments of the film.
