Film: Big Tits Zombie
Pictured - Everything you need to know about this movie

This movie involves two things. Guess what they are.

Based on an obscure manga by mangaka Rei Mikamoto, Big Tits Zombie (aka Big Tits Dragon) is a Japanese comedy-action-horror film starring adult actress Sora Aoi. Aoi is an exotic dancer named Rena Jodo who has returned from Mexico and is now staying with four other strippers: Ginko, Dana, Nene, and Maria. They struggle to get by in their lonely club that receives few customers. When their boss closes the club, they are forced to live in a local bath house and entertain gangsters for a job. Hilarity Ensues. Oh yeah... the bath house was previously owned by occultists who committed suicide.

Maria soon finds the Book of the Dead in the basement and unleashes a horde of zombies who are under her control. Of course, it's up to this Rag Tag Bunch Of Misfits to stop the Zombie Apocalypse.


Tropes Found In This Film Include:

  • Anti-Hero: None of the girls are very heroic. They lie, cheat, steal, and at one point, they run over an old man just in case he might've been a zombie.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Limbs fly off with regularity.
  • Ax-Crazy: It turns out that Maria is crazier than the girls originally thought.
  • Bad Boss: The pimp, he whores out strippers, and tries to stiff dead people on their pay.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. As expected, some girls get turned into zombies and the results are not pretty.
  • The Bet: The girls gamble with the yakuza and each other. One bet involves Rena and Ginko sumo wrestling each other. When Ginko loses, she has to perform Body Sushi.
  • Big Damn Villain: A Blue Oni pops out to drag Maria to Hell just as Rena is about to be pushed in. Granted, he doesn't seem as evil as most depictions of that sort of character.
  • Bittersweet Ending: As expected from this genre, most of the characters are dead but at least the zombie apocalypse has been averted. Although it seems that Rena can use the Necronomicon to summon her friends anytime she likes by the end.
  • Black Humor: All the darkness of a zombie movie, but with a comedic edge.
  • Bloody Hilarious: It is a bloody movie but most of the gore is Played for Laughs.
  • Body Sushi: Which is not played for Rule of Sexy but rather uncomfortable for the woman in question, especially once they start pouring sake down "there".
  • Boom Head Shot: Genko only has about three bullets but uses them wisely.
  • Camera Abuse: Blood splatters on the camera after a character gets shot.
  • Car Fu: The girls run over a (possible) zombie with a van.
  • Cat Fight: There's a few in this fight, the first two are over minor squabbles and mostly for fun, the last two are leading up to death or life circumstances.
  • Chainsaw Good: This movie loves this trope. One of the first zombie-kills, only a few moments in the film, is via chainsaw. When Rena finds said chainsaw, she is overjoyed. It even sparkles.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: Rena tries to cheat at a gambling game with loaded dice and Genko catches her.
  • Clothing Damage: Two counts. Both featuring Rena and Ginko...
    • After an argument involving the loaded dice mentioned above, the two girls start to fight and end up tearing their tops off.
    • Later, a zombie attacks the two girls and ends up ripping their tops off in much the same manner.
  • Cool Hat: Rena has a sombrero from Mexico, although she normally has it flung on her back and not worn the traditional way.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Rena throws the aforementioned Cool Hat and somehow knocks a zombie on his ass.
  • Dark Action Girl: Genko
  • Deadline News: A reporter gives an account of the outbreak while zombies approach from the background. She's eaten a few moments later.
  • Dirty Coward: When the zombies attack, Maria takes off and leaves the others to fend for themselves.
  • Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting: Even though none of the girls express knowledge in martial arts, they can perform all sorts of high kicks when the zombies come. Also, becoming a zombie can apparently give you martial arts skills.
  • Eye Scream: Ginko stabs her sister's killer through the eye (and presumably the skull) with the business end of an umbrella.
  • Face-Heel Turn: Maria once she realizes the dead obey her.
  • Fiery Red Head: Maria, although she obviously dyes her hair.
  • Five-Man Band
  • Fortune Teller: Nene practices with tarot cards on the side. Her predictions are pretty accurate, too.
  • Genre Savvy: Maria points out that the creatures are zombies and explains how they work based on Night of the Living Dead and other zombie movies.
  • Gratuitous English: Their boss briefly greats the girls in English when they arrive at his office.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Rena answers her cell in Spanish ("hola") for no particular reason. It's shortly after she explains she has been to Mexico.
    • At the same time, if Rena learned Spanish while in Mexico, she would not say "hola" when she answered the phone but would be more likely to say "bueno".
  • Mister Big: The leader of the yakuza is a little person.
  • High-Pressure Blood: Anytime someone gets stabbed, expect a fountain.
  • Infinite Supplies: Averted when Rena runs out of gas for her chainsaw. Genko also runs out of bullets for her gun almost immediately, resulting in a One Bullet Left moment towards the end.
  • In Medias Res: The story begins with Ginko suffering from a zombie attack, gets saved by Rena, goes into a fight scene, then Rena has a Flash Back to the previous events to show How We Got Here.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: At one point, after a zombie has removed Rena and Ginko's tops, it gets cut open. Blood then sprays across their breasts.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: The undead yakuza devour the bath house owner as a Call Back to the previous Body Sushi scene. This time, however, the woman is the meal.
  • It Can't Be Helped: Spoken by Maria.
  • Japanese Christian: It's implied that Rena converted to Catholicism while in Mexico since she is seen praying to "the Lord" during a gambling game and even makes the Catholic cross. Later, she places a Christian cross on a grave. She also thanks God when her chainsaw starts up after losing fuel.
  • Kimono Fanservice: Apparently part of Nene's stage act.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Rena briefly bemoans cheap horror movies featuring "some girl with a sword fighting monsters".
  • Only Six Faces: All of the zombies get reused from scene to scene, not even changing outfits.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Maria, once she learns how to control the zombies. The girls never really regarded her all that much but she considered them to be Bullying a Dragon all this time.
  • Off with His Head!: As expected for a zombie movie.
  • Oh Crap: When the chainsaw runs out of gas for the first time.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Type V. They also use weapons, which is rare for zombie flicks.
  • Overdrawn at the Blood Bank: Genko stabbing her sister's killer in the gut might have been a dramatic scene, but he sprays an absurdly sustained gout of blood over Genko and Rena's bare breasts.
  • Perky Goth: Maria
  • Pocket Protector: When Genko slowly turns into a zombie, Maria orders her to shoot and kill Rena. Rena tells her to aim for her heart. Thankfully, Rena is The Alcoholic and has a metal flask of red sake' in her jacket's breast pocket.
  • Raising the Steaks: When the dead are summoned to rise, the sushi the girls were preparing comes alive and attacks them.
  • Really Gets Around: Rena but only when she's drunk.
  • Red Right Hand: When one character is bitten on the hand, it later turns into a grotesque green claw.
  • Retirony: A non-cop example, oddly enough. Nene was not far from retirement when she was turned into a zombie.
  • Shout-Out: Aside from the Romero zombie films being mentioned above, the Blue Oni mentions that "there is little room in Hell" when apologizing for the zombies.
  • Stripperific: Well... they are strippers.
  • Token Minority: Dana is said to be from South East Asia. More than likely, Thailand.
  • Tome of Eldritch Lore: The Book of the Dead that unleashes the zombies.
  • Vagina Dentata: When Nene is turned into a zombie, she shoots flames from her nether regions.
  • Yakuza: Their most frequent clients in the bath house.
  • Waif-Fu: The girls are pretty agile in a fight, likely from their dancing experience.
  • Wicked Cultured: Maria and the Blue Oni.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Mostly worn by Maria, although Dana and at least one zombie gets in on the action.
  • Zombie Infectee: As mentioned above, the movie starts with Ginko suffering from a zombie bite. She later apologizes to Ginko for not telling her sooner.
