‘We are going to flush you!’
Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead – original title: ゾンビアス Zonbi asu – is a 2011 Japanese comedy horror feature film directed by Noboru Iguchi (The Machine Girl; Dead Sushi; The ABCs of Death). The movie stars Arisa Nakamura, Asana Mamoru, Mayu Sugano, Asami Sugiura.
Wracked with guilt over the suicide of her bullied sister, young karate student Megumi accompanies four older friends on a trip into the woods: smart girl Aya, her druggie boyfriend Také, full-figured model Maki, and nerdy Naoi.
Things start to go badly when Maki finds a parasitic worm inside a fish – and eats it down, in the hope that it will keep her skinny. Her stomach later feels horrible and she relieves herself in an outhouse toilet.
The parasitic worm Maki ate had apparently laid eggs in her stomach and these emerge now that they are are out of her body. Soon after, they are attacked by a mob of zombies who emerge from the outhouse toilet Maki used…
” … Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead is somehow worth only a few laughs. A cheap parasitic offshoot of Nikkatsu’s Sushi Typhoon series, gore effects specialist Yoshihiro Nishmura is at his most slapdash, while helmer Noboru Iguchi doesn’t care to clean up the pic’s narrative and visual mess…” Maggie Lee, Variety
“And give Igushi credit for this much, at least: As basic as his fixations may be he presents them with an absolutely bizarre sense of ambition […] Simultaneously as silly and disgusting as it can possibly be…” Todd Brown, Screen Anarchy
“Just when you think this film has bottomed out (hee hee) it manages to delve deeper into a Freudian cache … to the point where a character takes flight, and ultimately a fight with the Queen Parasite that ends poorly for everyone involved.” Scott Shoyer, Twisted Central
