Perhaps the only entry in a genre all its own, BLOODY MALLORY is a neo-B movie French actioner, with a ghoul-busting babe as its heroine, and an aesthetic designed to mimic the look of Japanese manga. A pastiche that counts BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and RESIDENT EVIL among its influences, the low-budget flick sports surprisingly strong special effects, and a soundtrack by Kenji Kawai (GHOST IN THE SHELL). Mallory (Olivia Bonamy, JEFFERSON IN PARIS) had a difficult wedding night, when she discovered her new husband was a demon and was forced to off him with an ax. He cursed her as he died, and now she is forever bound to fight the forces of evil in France. A few years later Mallory heads up a team of anti-paranormal agents, comprised of an eight-year-old mute psychic who can occupy the bodies of others, and Vena Cava, a flamboyant transvestite with expert knowledge of explosives. When a routine mission in a convent turns into mass destruction, due to the appearance of a mysterious hooded woman who makes short shrift of Mallory's team, the goblin warrior knows something big is brewing. Barely escaping with her life, Mallory soon learns that the Pope has been kidnapped by the same shadowy figure, and despite the Church's disapproval of her activities, she is the only one who can save him. Mallory must enter an alternate realm to which the ghouls have taken His Holiness, and, with the aid of Vena and Father Carras (Adria Collado)--the Pope's leather-clad bodyguard--battle a shape-shifting succubus and a female vampire, among many other nasty demons.
