Go To

Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead (ゾンビアス Zonbiasu) is a Japanese comedy horror film that was released in September 2011 at the Austin, Texas Fantastic Fest film festival before eventually hitting theaters in Japan in February 2012. The movie is about a school girl name Megumi going on a camping trip with her group of friends, only to find themselves in a swamp full of zombies. These zombies don't behave the way you would expect them to. The group eventually discovers the origins of these zombies and try to find the help they can to escape.

As standard of a summary as that sounds, the film is a totally different story.

Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead provides examples of:

  • Badass Adorable: Adorable Megumi knows karate.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Dr. Takayama's daughter Sachi doesn't talk much, but she lets people get killed by parasites to survive and she's a capable fighter who teams-up with the Queen of the Negurokeduros against Megumi.
  • Bitch Alert: Maki is aspiring to be a super model, but complains that only ugly girl gets picked and constantly berates Megumi. She even eats a tape worm in an effort to get skinny, and rubs it in Megumi's face.
  • Body Horror: The parasites in general and when Megumi is raped her stomach bloats and contorts itself due to the pure amount of eggs/semen being pumped in her.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • Aya is raped by the parasites which infected Maki.
    • Megumi lost her sister by suicide and is by the movie's end the Sole Survivor of the group.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Naoi is quite a coward, but he will smash heads if his friends lives are on the line.
  • Downer Ending: Subverted. This seems to be the case when Megumi is captured and raped by Sachi and parasite queen Maki, but she escapes and is seemingly fine even though she was clearly impregnated by the parasites.
  • Driven to Suicide: Megumi's backstory involves her sister committing suicide from the excessive bullying.
    • A man in the village who is infected by the nekurogeduros kills himself.

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Mad Scientist Dr. Takayama wants to help his ill daughter, who is suffering leukemia.
  • Evil Counterpart: Dr. Takayama's daughter, to Megumi.
  • Fanservice: There are not only Panty Shots. There's a scene which shows Megumi and Aya naked in the bathroom together, too.
  • Gasshole: People who are infected by the nekurogeduros fart a lot.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: The parasite in Naoi hatched and began taking him over. As it does this, he takes Dr. Takayama down and allows the both of them to be eaten by the parasites, just to buy Aya some time to escape.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Dr. Takayama, who infects people with the eggs of the parasites just to help his cancerous daughter survive by making her digest the matured parasites and flush them out of her.
