Zombie (Zombi 2) Review

Lucio Fulci created some of the best zombie films proving that Italians love zombies and gore. Lucio is a tricky one that in order to create more attention to his film, actually first named this movie Zombi 2 in order to ride the popular praise that was generated my George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead that was known throughout Europe as Zombi.

A journalist basically decides to go to a remote mysterious Caribbean island with her friend and learn that most of the village has been turned into zombies through Voodoo rights. The elements of this scary movie work well like the environment is eerie, the score is chilling and the makeup of the zombies is quite good. Susan is played by Auretta Gay and is yet another horror movie girl that looks delicious.

Best zombie kill scene: A shark takes on an underwater zombie and the great predator wins of course.
