A maid tidies the house and prepares to 'tend to' the father of the house while his daughter is in the other room, when suddenly there's a knock on the door. A bloodied, frenzied woman screams that 'they're coming!' and promptly falls over dead... and that's when the zombies arrived...
Chainsaw maid is a grusome claymation that I really didn't enjoy. It tells a simple story of a group of zombies attacking a father, daughter, and their maid who protects them by killing all the zombies (via chainsaw of course). I don't like claymation, but it was at least parcially effective because I was disgusted by the gory kills. Unfortunately, I found them a bit too gross to be enjoyable. A case of 'gore to have gore'. Overall, even with it's short run-time, Chainsaw Maid isn't worth a watch.
Moved from my blog: Sometimes after watching an anime I'm asking myself one important question: "WTF did I just watch?" Chainsaw Maid is one of those anime. Well there is a huge ammount of similar animations floating around the internet (not necessarily Japanese ones), but what makes CM stand apart from those is the insane amount of gore. In case you wonder what I am talking about: Chainsaw Maid is a claymation (stop-motion cartoon done using plasticine) on top of that its a b-movie with zombies, a maid and a chainsaw. While it deserves recognition for being an attempt to do a b-movie using plasticine, it is extremely gory and it IS very disturbing. When I was watching this short I probably made a face similar to the one the father character had when he saw what was left of the zombies in the final scene. I can't say I enjoyed watching it and unless you want to feel disturbed I recommend staying away from this anime.
