Big Tits Zombie 00

Review:

Sometimes you have an idea of what you're getting into with a film before it even starts.  Yet that phrase "don't judge a book by its cover" is accurate more often than not.  I thought I knew what to expect from a movie like Big Tits Zombie, but what I got was something entirely different.  The DVD box art features three scantily clad women, each wielding huge weapons.  Of course there's a chainsaw and a samurai sword.  It wouldn't be a zombie movie without those.

Based on the popular Japanese comic of the same name, Big Tits Zombie centers on five strippers working at a two-bit club in the middle of nowhere.  They stumble upon a hidden room below the building filled with strange objects including a mystical book.  Since this is a horror movie, someone has to read excepts from the tome out loud.  This causes the dead to rise and the girls have to start kicking ass.

Instead of being a mediocre movie where hot chicks kill zombies, Big Tits Zombie parodies itself.  It gets all meta on us and acknowledges that it's a ridiculous idea for a film.  By doing so, it makes it a way more entertaining experience, taking on a persona akin to Mystery Science Theater 3000.  There are shouts from the director pointing out continuity errors, the actresses complaining about their contracts, and more.

I watched this with the English dub, but there's Japanese audio available too.  I'm unsure if this was originally produced as a serious film before being lampooned for its US release.  Obviously the English audio doesn't match up to what the actresses are saying, but it doesn't matter.  The humor more than makes up for it.  At times it reminded me of Kung Faux, but certainly a different style.  It just works.  It's not distracting at all.

The special effects are minimal and often pretty hokey.  When you see a bite that's getting worse, the film just kind of bulges around it.  Instead of doing some sort of great makeup effect, they just altered it in post.  In any other movie, it would have been a huge faux pas, but this is Big Tits Zombie so you just go with it.

Big Tits Zombie would have been a pretty lame movie if not for the humor.  The self deprecating style makes it a film that you can watch over and over again, preferably with friends.  It's the kind of party movie that you'd put on just to see how other people would react to each scene.  It's ridiculous and over-the-top and filled with scantily clad women.  Do I really need to say more?  OK.  I'll leave you with this:  Big Tits Zombie is the best movie featuring a zombie woman shooting fire out of her vagina that you will see all year.

Video and Audio:

Big Tits Zombie is presented in widescreen format and 2.0 Dolby Digital sound.  It doesn't really need full surround sound as it is what it is.  The video looks good without any blemishes or issues.

Special Features:

Fifteen minutes of behind-the-scenes footage is included on the disc.  This didn't provide much more information for the film.  Most of it is shaky and in poor quality, showing the cast and crew preparing for scenes.  Occasionally they talk to one of the actresses, but it's not a formal interview.  It's really just killing time between setups, so they don't add much.

The film is also presented in both 2D and 3D versions.  There are even glasses included.  These are the old school 3D with the red and blue glasses.
