Japanese Aqua Zombies

Attack Girls’ Swim Team Versus The Undead

A swim team of bouyant Asian schoolgirls in tight bathing suits battling their classmates and teachers who have been turned into the undead by a vaccine mix-up in the lab? You had me at tight bathing suits.

In the cumbersome titled Attack Girls’ Swim Team Versus The Undead (2007), Aki, brainwashed and trained (in that order) to become an assassin, is transferred to an all-girl school, just as a virus that turns the young ladies into entrail-twirling zombies has been making the rounds.

Everyone – teachers included – are made into gleeful zombies, tearing into necks, chopping off limbs, and decapitating students with metal rulers. Everyone, that is, except the swim team. Turns out the school pool’s chlorine makes them immune to the zomb-virus.

The cartoonish gore is straight grindhouse stuff and is amusingly entertaining. One female teacher uses stringy guts pulled out of a chainsawed stomach to accessorize her fresh-stained wardrobe. The evil scientist turns out to be doubly so, and faces off with Aki in the end, who’s not too happy about that whole “brainwashing through rape” technique. Aki, without any clothes worth mentioning, has a secret retribution weapon up her, uh, sleeve.

Just so you know, this fine film is in Japanese and does not have sub-titles. Like that’s gonna stop you.
