REVIEW: Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979) - Zombi 2 (October 2015)


Zombi 2 - A Gut-wrenching slice of Zombie Horror (Lucio Fulci).
Gory, gross and slightly disturbing: Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979) has it all! It's the unofficial sequel to George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978) - this time directed by the late Lucio Fulci.

A remote island is the setting where the bodies of the dead are coming back to life and can only be killed by being shot in the head (cue the gore). Meanwhile, in New York City, a boat is set adrift containing a flesh eating ghoul which sets up a very bleak ending (NO SPOILERS)! Our heroes set of to the Island to solve the mystery that lies in it's deepest, blood-splattered jungles!

Yes! This is the film where it's zombie vs shark in an amazing underwater scene which has thrilled many gore-hounds, alike! There is a shower scene which sticks out - quite literally - where a naked woman showering meets her demise at the hand of the Living Dead!

It's a very nice film to watch in Widescreen from ArrowFilms.co.uk on dvd and blu-ray! The soundtrack score is GREAT and EERIE, too!!

WARNING: This film is very gory and was followed by very low budget sequels from Italy. The music, as well is very good and memorable. It's worth checking out if you love Horror, Zombies or even twisted gore effects! The action can be a bit slow in places, but that is the charm that has probably influenced many, many Z-movie counter parts that had followed!

See... Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979)
