Big Tits Zombie Review

Let me get this out of the way: This movie is NOT a porno. It’s an over-the-top Japanese zombie movie. Not that that’s out of the way, Big Tits Zombie is a 2010 zombie movie based on a manga called Kyonyuu Dragon which translates to “Big Tits Dragon.” What the hell’s with all the tits?

Manuelito Review

Before I start, I just want to say that I will try my best to keep the politics to a minimum and focus more on the graphic novel as a whole. Immigration in the United States is a super complicated topic that I will not get into on this blog. This is a review blog and, while I do review things that have political leanings in them, I do my […]
