Directed by Lucio Fulci
After making his name in the giallo subgenre, Lucio Fulci breathed new life into his career with this ultra-gory 1979 masterpiece about a group of unfortunate Americans who foolishly set sail for a remote Caribbean island that's crawling with worm-filled zombies. Thanks to its extraordinarily gruesome FX and that still-unbelievable zombie vs. shark-scene, ZOMBIE sparked a zombie-gore trend in Italy, and landed itself a permanent spot on the list of the greatest zombie movies in the history of the subgenre. Essential viewing for all Shudder-ers!
Lucio Fulci’s ultra-gory masterpiece is a must-see classic of zombie cinema.
Cast: Tisa Farrow, Ian McCulloh, Richard Johnson, Olga Karlatos
Givin that this was done before all the big tech stuff of today it plays really well...as good if not better then Dawn of the Dead. It for sure has some spots and I gotta say the script is a big steamer but some of the effects are really ahead of the curve....the grave yard rise is kinda flakey but over all not bad
pretty good. i really enjoyed the eye scene in context as well as that great zombie shark fight. so stupid, but hell ya
It’s a zombie movie.
😨 This is a classic.
Pretty good for an older movie! Very entertaining and the scenery on the island is nice.
