Zombie (1979) Reviewed

ZOMBIE aka Zombi 2, aka Zombie Flesh Eaters ( 1979 )

Originally conceived as a rip-off of Romero’s successful films, Lucio Fulci’s Zombie ended up surprising genre fans by being something altogether different. No one does gore like the Italians and this has ladles of it. These are jungle zombies so there’s really not much separating Zombie from your standard Italian cannibal movie. There’s quite a lot of talking and the plot feels European and boring, but the gore and action are rewarding. There’s an eye-piercing scene that’s sure to set you squirming. Mama mia!
