Plot[edit]

Yuki (Rina Akiyama) lives with her father Jiro (Yurei Yanagi) and her mother Kayako (Fumie Nakajima) in Tokyo. Their peaceful lives are disturbed when a group of assassins slaughters Kayako and cripples Jiro. Yuki seeks revenge by cladding herself in gothic lolita fashion and killing off the assassins.[3]

Release and reception[edit]

The film was shown at the Tokyo International Film Festival on October 25, 2010.[4] The film was released on DVD in North America by Tokyo Shock on May 24, 2011 under the title Psycho Gothic Lolita.[5]

The Hollywood Reporter gave a mixed review praising the films "lightning pace" and stating that "several sequences involving Yuki and her Lolita garb are subtlely witty" while saying it never reaches the heights of special effects designer Yoshihiro Nishimura's films.[6]
