“Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead” is a Japanese horror/comedy that was presented in a Canadian premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. If you enjoy the sound effects of gastric gases, unnecessary female booties exposed, excrements galore, and cheesy special effects, this is the movie for you.
To save his diseased daughter, a crazy scientist creates a species of worms that lay eggs within its host and exit Alien-style, creating a gastric-zombie of this person.
Meanwhile, a typical gang of teens (a big-boobed bimbo, a druggie macho, the nerdy geek, and a not-so-typical schoolgirl) go camping nearby and fall upon one of the shit-zombies. In a panic, they barricade themselves in a nearby house that happens to be the home of the scientist and his daughter. Excrements and cheesiness ensues throughout the rest of the movie.
I went into this movie expecting to see crap (in all senses of the word), as from the trailer of this movie, you know ahead of time that you’re not going into a Hollywood, high-budget thriller. The inappropriate humor of feces and intestinal gases was funny at first, but just became repetitive and got very old, very quickly.
Aside from an original, yet very out-of-this-world scenario, not much impressed me from this movie. If you’re going to watch it, do so without any expectations and with your humor-level cranked down to “Freddy Got Fingered” or “Jackass” style. Not that I have a problem with this kind of humor, as I, myself, am an adept of all types of humor, including this type; it’s just that the feces jokes become redundant rapidly.
