If you are like me, and you like a little bit of gore, some martial arts, hot Asian babes and freaky storylines, you would have found yourself appreciating some of the productions emerging from Japan at the moment. Films like the Big Tits Zombie, Mutant girl Squad and RoboGeisha have excited fans of both Asian and gore cinema, and I approached Erotibot with the type of gusto that one would expect from a fan of this sub-genre.

This film, Erotibot, aka Karei Naru Erogami-ke no Ichizoku: Shinsô Reijô wa Denki Shitsuji no Yume o Miru ka (which itself is a pisstake of the Japanese title of Phillip K. Dick's story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) was written by Naoyuki Tomomatsu, the writer and director of the not brilliant but still a welcome part of this Japanese cinematic invasion Vampire Girl Versus Frankenstein Girl.

The film tells of a young girl, Tamayo, who has just turned 18 and lives by herself with only three androids for company. The latest addition has a few programming quirks though, and is prone to fantasise that one day he and his mistress will be lovers, even though he is not programmed for lovemaking like household head robot Number 1 is, and does.

Unfortunately for Tamayo, her evil step-sister Tsukiyo has discovered that she is to be the sole beneficiary of their grandfather's will, and with her slightly psychotic sidekick, she hatches a plan to kill Tamayo by reprogramming her robots and poisoning her.

Of course, love overcomes programming, and Tamayo's lovestruck android prepares to defend her until the end, but will he be able to protect her from these two badly fight-choreographed bitches?

Only time will tell, and the film is so boring, that time feels like three weeks even though it is only a little over 70 minutes.

Unfortunately, if you think you are in for something along the lines of The Machine Girl or Tokyo Gore Police, you are sorely mistaken. This is terribly made, pseudo soft core sci-fi porn, with bad acting, un-erotic sex and a story so stupid you will pray for it to end. It is like really bad live action hentai without tentacles.
Video
The picture is presented in 16:9 enhanced 1.78:1 aspect ratio, the quality of which is surprisingly excellent.
Audio
The audio is only presented in stereo, but the sound effects are so badly dubbed you won't really notice as you will be ridiculing the poor sound editing.
Extra Features
First we have two interview featurettes with stars Asami and Maria Ozawa, followed by a trailer for the film. The interviews are informative, if not occasionally awkward (Asami's interview is subtitled as she speaks no English) with the cast who talk about their careers in porn and non-porn and the making of this film.
The Verdict
Movie Score
Disc Score
Overall Score
This whole film was like watching a boring version of Bicentennial Man with a bit of sex in it, and if you have ever endured Bicentennial Man, you will realize that this must be really fucking bad if it is more boring than that. I hate to be predictable, but the saving grace of this film is Maria Ozawa's body. áTo say I am massively disappointed in this would be an understatement!
