VAMPIRE GIRL VS FRANKENSTEIN GIRL (2009)

Transfer student Monami is a vampire and she has a crush on Mizushima who happens to be the kinda-boyfriend of Keiko who's father is secretly a mad scientist who, in cahoots with the sexy school nurse, is killing students and experimenting on reanimation. Wow! The pretty much the entire story, but what makes this movie stand out is the fact that the filmmakers are just out to entertain the audience and they do.

I'm normally not a fan of the wacky-Japanese-over-the-top genre, but VGVFG was really good. Imaginative story, beautiful girls (especially Yukie Kawamura), high school setting, excellent music that fit really well with the action onscreen, super quick pace that never lets up for a minute, insane creatures, delightful take on the vampire and Frankenstein stories, every person has 60 gallons of blood in their body, over exaggerated high school cliques, sexy school uniforms.

Also there's some fun extras on the blu-ray, including over an hour of footage filmed during the making of the movie! Great stuff.
A few people will get this joke.
