Yes, the first live action adaptation of popular zombie hunting video game Onechanbara is, by any objective standard, pretty much horrible. Plot? Heh. Acting? It is to laugh. But, and let's be honest, nobody watches a movie with a hot chick in a bikini chopping down zombie hordes with a samurai sword because they're interested in 'good film making'. They just like hot chicks in bikinis, is all, and on that level Onechanbara - on these shores as Chanbara Beauty - delivers enough that a sequel is about to appear.
Posters for the upcoming Onechanbara Vortex were prominently displayed at the recent Hong Kong Filmart but i hadn't actually seen any footage until the lads at 24fps pointed the way to the just-released teaser. Plot? why mess with success: hot chick in bikini chopping down zombies with a samurai sword. Check it below the break!
