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
A classic. That said, you're either into shark vs zombie, or you're not.
A fun classic and gritty zombie flick. Terrible dubbing job.
First Fulci film I’d seen. Not bad, not great either. Far better than The Beyond. I still prefer Romero’s Dead films.
A definite classic. Has all the steeples of a B Movie. Low budget, bad dub, pacing issues in the story, but we also have dangerous stunts, and gruesome effects.
Not bad. Cinematography is really good for 70s horror.
