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
Such a classic with an epic score! Never gets old. An Easy 5
Another movie I watched when I was 5-7 years old and I loved it then and still love it now! Pretty interesting how they used like voodoo/witchcraft as the reason for the dead rising. Really interesting to say the least and a classic in my books! 5/5!
Excellent and exceptionally good! I went in with the thought of poor cheesy movie, but it was top notch and ahead of it’s time. The score is the best part of this movie. The gore is extremely well done.
This is a horror essential for every horror fan!
