Original Japanese Title: Zonbi Asu.
Perversities, crazy props, and a mountain trip s(p)oiled by parasitic ass-inhabiting organisms and a mad father/daughter duo with incurable disease.
Somewhere along the way it does go from at least somewhat serious and intense to more so silly and just-enjoy-the-ride-like, and I slowly go from being grossed out to maybe being cured of a dormant phobia for parasites. Not that I'd eat any voluntarily but... they're just hive-minded alien organisms with shit for brains huh.
Special effects towards the end might've been a bit crappier than they were in the beginning, but from the very first ass opening - maybe even earlier - I was hooked to this. With admirable all-outedess and creative everything, from the fighting choreography (Knife Girl For The World) to the mind-bending soundtrack and self-exploding heads.
If you watch this you'd better not be expecting anything serious, but it does leave you... somewhat inspired.
End of the dead indeed. Let us live. Right on.
