Aahhh yes … just read that title again!! The Texas FrightmareWeekend 2012 dug deep for this one (hee hee)!! This was listed on the program as a “Secret Screening” due to it not being picked up yet for North American distribution. The title, ZOMBIE ASS: TOILET OF THE DEAD, captures exactly what this film is all about. This is another crazy, over-the-top Japanese, comic book-style action and gore film from the same mind that brought you The MACHINE GIRL, ROBOGEISHA, and MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD (which I saw at last year’s Texas Frightmare Weekend). This also proves something that I’ve been wondering about for a while now: Director Noboru Iguchi has a huge ass fetish. No, I’m not saying he likes huge asses, only that his fetish for the human derrière is a consuming theme in most of his films. And not just the ass itself, but things going in and coming out of the ass as well. This theme of his comes to a head (or should I say ‘tail’; hee hee) in ZOMBIE ASS: TOILET OF THE DEAD.
The film begins with four teens heading up to the mountains to go fishing. Pretty Megumi (ArisaNakamura) is still trying to overcome the suicide of her sister, Ai, who killed herself due to being relentlessly tormented by bullies at school. Megumi, who has a penchant for generic-looking female sailor outfits, promised herself she’d never feel weak again and has since taken up and mastered karate. Megumi can now kick some serious ass (hee hee). She lets her friend Aya (Mayu Sugano) talk her into accompanying her, her delinquent, drug abusing boyfriend Tak (Kentaro Kishi), their goofy friend Naoi (Danny), and their very hot wannabe-model friend Maki (Asana Mamoru). Once they get to the mountains, Maki tells them the real reason they’re up there is to catch a trout in order to find a particular parasite that she can swallow to make her not just thin, but “Super model thin.” Hey why not; it beats eating that shitty Weight Watchers food!! In a rather disgusting scene (one of many here, folks), Maki cuts a very long and ugly parasite out of a trout and proceeds to swallow it down in one gulp. A little while later Maki is doubled over with intense stomach pains proceeded by excessive farting (excessive farting) and finally the feeling she’s gonna shit her (sexy) panties (sorry; she’s a pretty hot gal). Before you can wipe the tears from your eyes from laughing so hard at her farting, she’s squatting over a hole in an outhouse ready to unload when she’s attacked by a group of shit-covered zombies coming up out of the hole. Disgusting? Definitely. Funny? Absolutely!!
