When George Romero's "Dawn of the Dead" was released in Italy, it was released under the name "Zombi." "Zombi 2" was written before Dawn, but was slightly changed to cash in on Romero's success. Thus, rather than call it "Zombi" again, they stuck on a "2," making it seem like a sequel.
When "Zombi 2" was released in the U.S., the name was changed once again, this time to "Zombie."
And the confusion ends.
the plot need not to mesh
Just as long as it's gory
and has the dead eating flesh
With decay on the skin
it can be grotesque
The more blood that's thrown in
makes it more picturesque
A zombie vs. a shark?
I'd say that's something new
Plus the voodoo curse is stark
there's not much you can do
Just food for the worms
that's what you'll become
Plus be infected with germs
as your brain starts to go numb
Fulci's a freak, well
that much he'd confess
This masquerades as a sequel
a money move I guess
So check this out now
or the dead will be resurrected
And they'll figure out how
to repay you for what you've neglected
A shocking and excellent Italian horror thriller from Lucio Fulci whom was fresh off of doing comedies, westerns and thrillers gives us one of the most repulsive and scariest cult classics of all time. There is a creepy tropical atmosphere to give the movie's feel a tender eerieness with it's groovy music score by Fabio Frizzi and graphic gore effects such as the memorable if absolutely horrifying scene involving a woman getting her eyeball stabbed through a large splinter of wood.
The 2-Disc anniversary edition is certainly an improvement over the Anchor Bay version with better picture and digital sound quality that also contains the original Italian language track with English subtitles. It's extras are terrific, it's got featurettes on the history and behind the scenes of how this movie got made with it's success around the world, it's original european theatrical trailer, other trailers to zombie movies avalible from Media Blasters DVD, interviews with the actors & filmmakers and a photo, poster-and-still gallery.
This movie belongs in every horror lover's DVD collection, i highly recommend it but not for light sleepers or the squeamish.Read more ›
Since I don't want to totally destroy the story for you, let's just say that the zombies in question seem to have come about due to some experiments by a curious doctor played by Richard Johnson. His reasearch partner died and his daughter, played by Tisa Farrow, with a reporter played by Ian McCulloch, go to this island in the Caribbean to find out what's going on. A bad mistake. The zombies end up taking over the whole island, which leads to a great scene in which Spanish conquistadores wake up from the dead and open some throats the old-fashioned way. The end of the movie is a standoff between those who are alive and those who are dead.
I'm leaving much out, so get your mouse moving and put this tape in your cart and proceed to the checkout. I realize that some people here have very negative opinions of this film, but ignore them and give it a try. You won't believe how atmospheric and gory this movie is! In fact, I worked myself up into such a lather that I think I might watch it tonight.
Anchor Bay Entertainment has done a fabulous job with Zombie. The picture is great and they even threw in some trailers and radio spots at the end of the film.

I only saw ZFE for the first time maybe six months ago but really liked the grittiness, the gore and the soundtrack I still think The Beyond is a better movie though.Published 2 months ago by Adamo

For a film that likely started out as an Italian cash-in on the successes of George Romero, this now has a place in the extreme-horror canon in its own right. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Jack Seney
