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 parasitical worm inside a fish - and wolfs it down, in the hope that it will keep her skinny. Her stomach later feels horrible and she relieves herself in an outhouse. The parasitic worm she ate had apparently laid eggs in her stomach and came out of in her diarrhea attack. Soon after, they are attacked by a crowd of poop-covered undead who emerge from the outhouse toilet Maki used. The group seeks refuge in the home of the strange Dr. Tanaka, who conducts experiments on the zombies and the parasites ... and who has another fate in mind for the five strangers. Can Megumi's karate help them escape, or will she have to rely on the liberating power of flatulence to defeat her demented captor? Written by Anonymous

Did you bring enough toilet paper...?
24 May 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Right, you have to be a fan of the extreme Japanese gore movies to enjoy a movie such as "Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead". Just look at the title of the movie, and you know immediately what kind of movie you are in for here.

So is it worth it? Yes it is. This movie is hilarious and just sickly over the top enough to be enjoyable. There are a lot of funny scenes that had me either laughing or just shaking my head in disbelief. And only from Japan would something be spawned. But of course, from the director of "The Machine Girl" and "Robo Geisha", a movie like this would have to see the light of day eventually. And personally, then I am glad that I bought this movie for my collection.

"Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead" is a great addition to any zombie aficionado's collection. But as I said above, preferably only if you enjoy this bizarre sub-genre of splatter and gore movies from Japan.

The story in the movie, well it is fairly straight forward, bizarre and twisted, but funny and enjoyable. A group of young people go out to the woods where they encounter a zombie, and they end up taking shelter in a small house; a house that is used by a doctor to keep his daughter alive through some very unorthodox methods.

The zombies in this movie are indeed something not seen before, so thumbs up for the innovative thinking here, despite it being so extremely weird. But you just got to love the way that they end up moving about as the parasites start to burst out from their orifices.

I will say that people in the movie were doing good jobs with their given roles, which really helped the movie quite well along a great way.

Effects-wise, then "Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead" is not a spectacle of awesome effects and amazing CGI. It makes uses of some fairly simple effects, but they work out well enough, and just adds to the overall bizarre mood of the entire movie.

As a zombie aficionado I enjoy the occasional zombie spoof every now and then, and "Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead" is a great Japanese zombie spoof that mixed enough ingredients of various genres into a strange, bizarre stew that simmers just right and becomes enjoyable in a sickening and oh-so-wrong way. As noted on the DVD cover "...What the f*** did I just watch?" - Hubert Vigilla, JAPAN CUTS - that pretty much sums up the spirit of the movie in the best possible way.
