Big Tits Zombie Review

wow. is what i will start with, just wow. Takao Nakano has created a whilrwind adaptation of  “Kyonyu Dragon” a manga originally written by Rei Mikamoto. The narrative is basic as are the special effects but it all plays a part in mocking Japanese Pop Culture. The Quote “It must be a cheap movie, they’re big recently, like some girl fighting zombies with a sword” sums up the ironic structure that makes the film.  When we are first introduced to the strippers working in a dying club, there is not much to say about them other then they are all beautiful and have captivating clothes; But as the story unwinds and they unleash an army of the undead by mistake their characters come alive. One of the best interpretation of  Pop culture is done through the character Maria, not the protagonist but a humours take on Gothic Lolita, A social group which now swarm Japanese streets, combining the odd mix of Gothic with Victorian English Petticoats and Umbrellas. Her grim outlook on life is swung into action when she takes control of the Zombies , this is done however in a Kawaii (cute) way, again mocking the youth of Japan who find death and dressing in mourning cute. Throughout the film there are these constant moments, you know you should be scared but you can’t help but laugh, some moments i wanted to cringe but again couldn’t help but laugh. Watching it in 3D makes it even funnier, as every time you have to put on your glasses, an extra indicates this by putting on a pair, i have to say it does make you a little excited. After watching it twice I can say that no matter where you look on the screen you will laugh, if the girls are not interesting your bound to find a bad piece of acting behind them or a ‘why are they doing that?’ moment. it’s amazingly made and i put my hands together to Takao Nakano. A truely brilliant film which will go down as a cult classic in Japan for sure.
