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

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!
Nice! barf bags!! 🙂
In your extra’s comment, you mention that the barf bags were distributed to moviegoers. I aspire to inspire barf bags one day! LOL
Duh! I was sitting here trying to think of what scene you were thinking of…
LOL – it was a fairly gross flick, and the gimmick was a great idea!
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.
It’s one of my favourites as well Paul! I still have a hard time watching the eyeball scene though :s
