Z is for Zombie

Fulci’s Zombie (or Zombi 2) contains one of my favourite scenes of all time in a Zombie movie. If you’ve seen it, you know what scene I’m talking about. If you haven’t, what the heck are you waiting for??

A zombie is found aboard a boat off the New York coast which belongs to do a famous scientist. Peter West, a journalist, travels to the Antilles with Ann, the daughter of the scientist. On the way, they meet with Brian, a ethnologist, and Susan. When they arrive at Matul Island, they find Dr. Menard, and discover a terrifying disease which is turning the islanders into horrifying zombies which devour human flesh and seem indestructible…

My Rating: A

Interesting Fact: As shown in trailers before the film was released, airline “barf bags” were handed out to theater moviegoers due to the unusually high amount of violence and gore for a horror film of that time.

Honourable Mentions for the letter Z: Zombieland

And now it’s time for the trailer!

  1. I’m up there with Paul! One of my all time favorites! I live 70+ miles west of Chicago and thanks to the Portage Theater, my daughter and I were able to experience this on the big screen at a midnight movie! I loved it!

  2. Wow, this is one of my favourite Zombie films ever! Its brilliant and super gory as well. I agree with you on THAT scene, its great! Seeing the trailer makes me want to watch Zombie again, haven’t seen it in ages.

Get in on the action!
