New York Premiere
Wracked with guilt over the suicide of her sister Ai, karate student Megumi accompanies a group of older friends on a trip into the woods. Things start to go badly when Maki finds a parasitical worm inside a fish–and wolfs it down alive, in the hope that it’ll help keep her skinny! Attacked by a crowd of undead who emerge from an outhouse toilet, the group seek refuge at the home of Dr. Tanaka and his daughter Sachi. Unbeknownst to them, Tanaka has been conducting experiments on the parasites–and the zombies! Featuring special effects by Yoshihiro Nishimura, and some truly jaw-dropping contributions from Iguchi’s genius subconscious, Zombie Ass is a steaming helping of bad taste from the twisted mind of cinematic madman Noboru Iguchi.
