While I haven't yet seen ZOMBOOBIES!, the upcoming Japanese horror comedy from director Francois Fujimoto, I already have a heart-on for it based on its campy premise alone! From the trailer, it's clear that Zomboobies! abides by the philosophy of "Go Big or Go Home."
While conducting experiments to create "the perfect breasts" a group of doctors are transformed into EVIL MUTANT CREATURES with an unstoppable hunger for BOOBIES! See hot action women fight to keep their perfect breasts out of these evil doctors’ mutant hands!!!
Zomboobies (Opai-Zuki-Zombie!) stars and is co-produced by Cathy Shim. Starring an entirely Asian cast and shot in Japanese, Zomboobies! is currently in post-production with a release date planned for later in 2012. Makeup and creature effects are handled by Make-Up and Effects Laboratories.
