(Author’s Note: This article was originally written for another, now-defunct, site by request and was “transplanted” here because, even though I’m not keen on the thought of my name being attached to this piece, I don’t like to see my time and efforts go to waste (no pun intended).
As I’ve stated before; when it comes to horror flicks with film school production, cheesy, blood-spurting gore effects, laughable scripts, and casts full of former and/or current AV and gravure idols, the Japanese are second to none. And as this is the Halloween season, it’s time to feature another one of these gems from Japan that contains most of the above. (I say most because none of the girls in this one is a JAV alumna.)
Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead, has exactly what you’d expect it to have with a title like that, as evident by the film’s official website. However, since this site is only about beautiful women, its female cast members are the focus here and I’ll leave the splatter descriptions and toilet humor for a future review at another site. Featured on the above poster is Arisa Nakamura, who plays the film’s heroine, Megumi.
Arisa Nakamura stars as high school megumi Megumi ….
….and when she’s not blowing away and kicking zombie ass ….
…she has this horrified look on her face.
eventually falls prey to the parasites within the zombified Maki, who’s played by ….
….gravure idol Asana Mamoru.
Of all the ladies in the cast, 22 year-old Asana has the most impressive physical stats. At 171 cm tall with a 35-22-34 figure (depending on which profile you read), she’s become quite popular since making her modeling debut three years ago. She meets with an very undignified end fairly early in the film but later returns as one of the zombie ….uh, “asses.” More flattering photos of her can be found here and a few hundred other sites around the net.
Veteran AV and splatter film actress Asami (aka Asami Sugiura) has a small role as a featured zombie. Surprisingly small, since she’s already made quite a name for herself in this genre, with titles like RoboGeisha, Mutant Girls Squad, and Horny House of Horror under her belt.
