Get ready for the worst first week of school EVER! No sooner has beautiful young Aki stepped on campus than she's pressed into service replacing a girl beat up by the swim team's over zealous male instructor. Next a psycho scientist sent in to inoculate t

Attack Girls Swim Team vs. the Undead (Koji Kawano, 2007)

Okay, let's start off by saying that if you're the kind of person who sees a title like Attack Girls Swim Team vs. the Undead and does not immediately think "THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER", you're probably in the wrong place. Because that's exactly what I thought when I saw the title of this movie, and, well, I'm the guy who's writing the review. If we're coming from entirely different mindsets... you know. And while the movie doesn't live up to the promise of the title, it's certainly good for a romp.

Aki (Sasa Handa) is the new girl at school. Keeps to herself, quiet, that sort of thing. One day, Sayaka (Yuria Hidaka), seeing her at the side of the pool and mistaking her for someone else, pushes her in as a prank. The two of them become fast friends after that, but this is no simple friendship drama. Because, after all, there must be an evil mastermind experimenting on the school (where else but in Japan?), administering a "vaccine" for a cold that's going around. But, yeah, vaccine? It makes zombies of everyone but Aki and the girls' swim team, who must find a cure.

No, it's not a great movie, and most of the time it's not even a good movie. But on the Joe Bob Briggs blood, breasts, and beasts scale, it gets top marks in all three categories (including one scene between Handa and Hidaka that wouldn't be out of place in an Emmanuelle flick), and it adds a continual element of just plan weird, in that style the Japanese do so well. The climax of the movie is just jaw-dropping. I mean, really, off-the-scale, [censored for Amazon consumption] nuts. And hysterically funny, if that kind of humor works for you.

So, yeah, not a good movie, but it's the kind of bad movie that transcends its badness and becomes something great. This is one you owe it to yourself to watch. ****

Ok, every now and then we see a movie so outrageously silly, so sleazy, full of exploitive scenes and so trashy that you wonder as to why you would waste your time watching it and how you managed to sit through the whole thing. I saw "The Girls REBEL FORCE of Competitive Swimmers" (aka. Joshikyoei hanrangun, Attack Girls' Swim Team vs. The Undead) earlier this year, and honestly, I feel so guilty that I managed to sit through the film. Well, I have a weakness for zombies and I have to prove that I am no snob. Hey, The film does feature hot Japanese girls in swimsuits and they're often seen in their birthday suits.

Aki (Sasa Handa) is a student with a troubled past. She was kept prisoner and abused by an enigmatic professor and trained to be an assassin. She had just transferred to a school at the worst possible time. There's a mysterious virus in the school and students and teachers are being rounded up to receive a vaccine to counter the virus. However, the very same vaccine supposed to protect them from infection is actually a drug that turns everyone to flesh-eating zombies. Luckily, Aki skipped on the vaccine, and the swim team is immune to the virus because of the chemicals present in the school's swimming pool--chlorine. Aki finds out that the man responsible for the injections is the same man who sexually abused and kept her prisoner.

I was expecting a film much like "Wild Zero", "Sars Wars: Bangkok Zombie Crisis", and "Meatball Machine" when I put the DVD in the player. The film is pretty bad, but I have to admit I couldn't help snickering and giggling while I was watching it. The film is somewhat entertaining in a "guilty" type of way (or maybe I have bad taste?).

4.0 out of 5 stars What Were You Thinking This Would Be - Kafka?? May 8, 2010
When calibrating softcore movies, one has to use a different yardstick to review and rate them. That yardstick has to be adjusted again when evaluating American vs. European vs. Asian softcore (I personally prefer the Euro ones). The unstated but ultimate purpose of these flix is not only to entertain but to stimulate the viewer, and the best do both. But there are very few that succeed. If you don't believe this, I envy your naïveté. If you think you're gonna mine gold in this arena, you're being foolish.

Here's the skinny on this Asian soft-core horror flick - it's not as good as 'Onechanbara', 'Machine Girl', 'Tokyo Zombie', 'Stacy', 'Meatball Machine', or 'Tokyo Gore Police' as far as solid, campy horror goes. It's at least as good as 'Zombie Hunter Rika', 'Captive Factory Girls' (both 1 and 2), 'Maid-Droid', 'Sexy Battle Girls', or 'Cruel Restaurant' as far as action/horror flix go. And it's WAY better than 'Female Prisoner Sigma', 'Yo-Yo Girl Sexy Cop', 'Sars Wars', 'Maid`s Secret' (both 1 and 2), 'Ninja Vixens', 'Kekko Kamen', 'Lady Ninja Kasumi' (1 through 4), or any of the 'Lady Ninja Kaeda' flix.

These last ones are ALL soft-core, and most pretty much suck on a variety of levels. This film is ridiculous, sure, but it's good for more than a few laughs and has copious amounts of nudity to keep me away from late-nite Ron Jeremy flix on satellite, so there's something to be grateful for right there...

4.0 out of 5 stars so terrible it's fantastic August 2, 2009
A new "vaccine" turns high-school students and teachers into flesh-eating zombies. Luckily the girls swim team is unaffected and they must fight for their survival against the undead student bodies and a mad scientist that's running it all. This Z-grade flick is a weird combination of high-school drama, zombies, gorefest, and soft-core porn. Not for the faint of heart, but if you dig this kind of movie you're sure to enjoy it.
