Zombie

In Theatre : July 18, 1980
Director(s): Lucio Fulci

In 1979, director Lucio Fulci set out to create a movie experience that would become the ultimate in flesh-eating terror. Fulci's film quickly became a worldwide sensation and more than two decades later remains one of the most graphically depraved shockers in horror history.   Tisa Farrow (Manhattan), Ian McCulloch (Zombie Holocaust), Richard Johnson (The Haunting) and Olga Karlatos (Keoma) star in this carnage classic about an onslaught of ravenous corpses that threatens to devour an island in the Caribbean and head straight for the streets of New York City. This is the bloody mother of all Italian zombie epics presented in all its eye-gouging, throat-ripping, gut-munching glory.   Originally perceived by critics as a Dawn of the Dead rip off, Lucio Fulci's Zombie is an over the top gorefest that has become a classic among fans over the years. Featuring some of the most realistic looking zombies ever to be seen on film (they're rotting and decomposing and look brilliantly disgusting) and plenty of memorable scenes (including the infamous splinter in the eye scene and the beautifully shot underwater battle between a shark and a resiliant zombie), Zombie is a gorehounds' dream.   The story is simple, a few inhabitants of a cursed island all become chow for a horde of zombies, but it works for the film as it is simple, unsettling gorey horror Fulci style. There's no social commentary or dark humor like in Romero's Dead trilogy or Dead Alive, just pure horror all the way; and while it may not be as profound as Fulci's The Beyond, Zombie is still a more than solid horror flick worth seeing if you have the stomach for it. Anchor Bay has assembled a solid DVD for the film.
