Just by looking at my all-time favorites about half deal with a zombie theme (I would even
consider the Evil Dead movies a mix between demons and zombies). I have always loved
zombies, because of their defeatability. I mean you can run by a zombie quite easily, but
there's always that dumbass that wants to kill the poor defenseless zombie, only to become
the main course when he is suddenly surrounded by 20 of the walking dead. Shoot them in
the head, kill the brain. That's the only way to kill zombies, right. I can't stand
zombies who can't be killed (with the exceptions of the
Next Door and
Return of the Living Dead).
My all-time favorite zombie movie
Lucio Fulci's "Zombie". This awesome film has all the
key ingredients that are necessary for a classic zombie epic. First, there are zombies and
plenty of them. Second, there is plenty of gore, which is very well placed. Fulci was a
master of gore, he used, but never abused it in "Zombie". The eyeball-puncturing
scene is a classic. Third, there are plenty of exploding heads. These zombies are slow
moving and easy to kill, but they seem to be everywhere. And, finally man is made to pay
for messing with mother nature. "Zombie" movies always seem to deal in some way
with the apocalypse. These are the things that not only make "Zombie" good, but
great on the corpse scale.
Hopefully, these pages will serve
as a fitting tribute to a man that was a true cinematic genius. Many people have turned
their nose up at
Fulci calling him a "hack", someone who
never did anything original, but when was the last time anyone in Hollywood or elsewhere
did something truly original. To those people I say, "your
lost". I can't understand and don't
respect you, if you have never allowed yourself to watch his films, based merely on
rumors or hearsay. That is just plain wrong. Fulci
rules and will live forever in the hearts of his fans!!!!!!!
I hope that this page, as well as,
the site will help educate people about
Fulci, a man who has met
more to horror than most people are willing to give him credit for. Again, anything you
can contribute to this site will be greatly appreciated. Go out, find "Zombie"
The story begins as a deserted boat
sails silently into New York Harbor. Unsuspecting cops looking for a little booty (and no
not that kind) are attacked by a zombie. He is quickly shot (not in the head) and falls
into the harbor leaving one cop dead. Can you see where this could be heading?
The story than changes
course. Ann (Tisa Farrow) is called down to the boat, because it belongs to her
father. She hasn't heard from him in a long time and decides to head off to the Caribbean
Island of Matool. She is accompanied by a newspaper reporter Peter West (Ian
McCulloch). Arriving on the island, they y find it infested with the walking dead. Oh
no....the drums!!! Is it voodoo, or something else bringing these dead bastards back to
Dr Menard (Richard Johnson) works
feverishly to find a cure, while leaving his super hot wife to died a gruesome death at
the hand of the undead. Her eyeball puncturing scene is truly magical cinematic moment
(shown in exquisite detail on my
Zombie pics & sounds page).
is also a great underwater scene where a zombie does battle with a shark. Tons of gore,
but what do you expect from a zombie movie.
But don't look
Some people believe that "Zombie"
would have been an excellent
prequel, rather than a sequel.
Also known as "Zombie 2" in
Italy, "Zombie Flesh Eaters" in the UK and "Island of the
Walking Dead" elsewhere.
Zombie is currently banned in
Finland and heavily censored in the UK.
Released as "Zombie 2" in most
of Europe (as "Voodoo, Schreckensinsel der
Zombies" (Voodoo, Horror Island of Zombies) in Germany, and "Zombie Flesh
Eaters" in the UK) due to the popularity of
Dawn of the Dead,
which was released as "Zombie" by
Argento. Followed up by three lesser
non-sequels although I found "Zombie 3" quite entertaining. If you are
the way I am, than this is a must see.
