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 Ragtag Bunch of Misfits to stop the Zombie Apocalypse.

Tropes found in this film include:

  • Adaptation Expansion: The movie greatly differs from the manga it's based on. The original manga was more contained, taking place solely at the strip club, where the action started as early as Chapter 1. The characters are also given more backstory and personality. The cause of the zombies was kept ambiguous in the original story, while the movie has the cause being Maria reading the Book of the Dead.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Played With. Maria in the original manga was an abusive Jerkass Hate Sink who was cowardly and didn't mind tricking zombies into killing her co-workers. This movie however, has keeps Maria's cowardly arrogance, but now has her create the zombies, use them to successfully kill most of her co-workers, and even dreams of destroying the world and recreating it in her own image.

  • Anti-Hero: None of the girls are very heroic. They lie, cheat, steal, and at one point, they run over an old man with a minivan 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 Bad: Maria, the accidental summoner and eventual leader of the zombies.
  • 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. In fact, he apologizes for the mess and says, "You know how it is. Prisons are full everywhere."
  • 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 in a Breadbox: Darna finds a zombie head at the bottom of the chest full of cash.
  • 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.
  • Devoured by the Horde: A sauna-owner is literally turned into a buffet for zombies as she is laid out on a table with her insides draped over her like Body Sushi. The zombies all sit around and eat her with chopsticks.
  • Dirty Coward: When the zombies attack, Maria takes off and leaves the others to fend for themselves.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: Maria is dragged off to Hell by the Blue Ogre after she attempts to cast Rena down the Well of Souls.
  • Erotic Eating: Maria—who is a stripper—has an extremely sensual way of consuming lollipops.
  • 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.
  • Fanservice: The main characters are strippers, and the actresses portraying them are pornstars. Need I say more?
  • Fiery Red Head: Maria, although she obviously dyes her hair.
  • Fortune Teller: Nene practices with tarot cards on the side. Her predictions are pretty accurate, too.
  • Gag Dub: The English dub available on YouTube takes a few...er...liberties with its translation, many of which might as well have been done by Rifftrax, though they don't really change the plot. For the most part, though, they're Actually Pretty Funny.
  • Genre Savvy: Maria points out that the creatures are zombies and explains how they work based on Night of the Living Dead (1968) and other zombie movies.
  • Gilligan Cut: Rena tells the midget yakuza boss that there is no way she will sleep with him because he is a disgusting little creep. The next scene has her waking up in bed next to the boss.
  • Gory Deadly Overkill Title of Fatal Death
  • 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".
  • Grave-Marking Scene: Rena and Ginko share a moment over Nene's grave, where Rena places plastic flowers on the grave as that was all she could find. Rena and Ginko then head back to the theatre to open a can of whoop-ass on the zombies.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Ginko uses her katana to cut a zombie in half length-ways.
  • Helping Hands: When Drana is transformed into a zombie, her hand is severed from her body. The hand then continues to try to pick up the money she had been attempting to gather.
  • High-Pressure Blood: Anytime someone gets stabbed, expect a fountain.
  • 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.
  • Incongruously Dressed Zombie: Zombies starts showing up in all kings of incongruous outfits, such as stripper costumes and school uniforms.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Ginko grabs a katana from the yakuza bathhouse and uses it as her primary weapon for fighting zombies. It can parry almost anything, and can cut zombies in half lengthways.
  • 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".
    • An extra one from the English dub: Dana calls home, speaking "Thai," while Ginko scolds, "This is Japan, dammit! Learn to speak dubbed English!"
  • Mister Big: The leader of the yakuza is a little person. As in "midget" little.
  • 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.
  • Only Six Faces: All of the zombies get reused from scene to scene, not even changing outfits.
  • 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.
  • Overly Long Tongue: After becoming a zombie, Darna sprouts an overly long tongue which she uses to attack Rena.
  • Parasol of Pain: Ginko is shown (in flashback) killing the man who murdered her sister by jamming an umbrella through his eye.
  • 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.
  • The Sociopath: Maria, who decides to start a Zombie Apocalypse because she feels bullied by her coworkers.
  • 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.
