Big Tits Zombie (2010)
Yes, you read that title right. Big Tits Zombie is trashy Japanese cinema, which I couldn’t resist picking up after reading about it in Bizarre magazine. Hey, it only cost me £3!
Basically, this is the same strippers and zombies scenario as we’ve seen in Jenna Jameson’s Zombie Strippers, the only difference being this version features cute Japanese girls (rather than sexy American girls). As per previous, the dancers inadvertently raise the dead and then have to survive the ensuing zombie apocalypse.
There’s actually a lot less smut on display than the title would suggest. Instead we get some fairly amusing scenes of the girls trying to endure their boring day job, plus the addition of some martial arts when it’s zombie killing time.
Sadly, the special effects are lame CGI and the undead themselves are the least convincing zombies I’ve ever seen. A shame – with better attention to detail this could have been a half decent horror spoof.
Don’t let the title put you off, Big Tits Zombie is very tame in the flesh revealing department, and actually features some mind boggling pop culture. Worth a go if you have any interest in films that are just plain odd!
As I’ve stated previously, I’ve never been much of a slasher film fan. I saw Scream nearly twenty years ago, not long after the film came out, and found it only mildly entertaining. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really enjoyed it second time around.
The story centres around a group of high school teenagers, who are terrorised via phone (that’s a landline, kids!) and killed off. Which sounds very unoriginal, right? Well the clever thing is that Scream doesn’t try to be completely original, rather the film is happy to exploit the audiences expectations and play with them, tongue slotted into cheek.
All very post modern and self referential, but at the end of the day the film stands or falls on it’s ability to scare – which it manages to do very well. The tension builds, characters face jeopardy and the audience is kept on the edge of its seat.
Scream succeeds in avoiding self parody and provides loads of thrills. There are enough nods to it’s predecessors to keep the slasher fans smirking knowingly. Good performances and quick dialogue made me glad I gave Scream another chance.
