Zombi 2 (also known as Zombie, Island of the Living Dead, Zombie Island, Zombie Flesh Eaters and Woodoo) is a 1979 zombie horror film directed by Lucio Fulci. It is the best-known of Fulci’s films. The movie made Fulci a horror icon. Despite the fact that the title alludes to the film being a sequel to Zombi (the Italian title of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead), the films are unrelated. When the film was released in 1979, it was scorned for its extremely bloody content, notably by the Conservative British Parliament.
“Zombie 2″ is a horror classic of Lucio Fulci with a simple, but interesting screenplay. The unforgettable story begins like Nosferatu, with an empty boat arriving in a harbor with a zombie instead of a vampire. The visuals are creepy and outstanding. The way the light and shadows reflect add so much to the movie.
The gore is outstanding and will make any normal person want to turn away.The film became infamous for two scenes in particular, aided by special effects. One features a zombie fighting an actual tiger shark underwater. The other infamous scene is where Paola has her eye gouged out on a splintered piece of wood very slowly and painfully. The film is also remembered among fans for its creepy, synthesized opening theme, composed by Fabio Frizzi.
A classic Zombie film that zombie fans or gore fans would love to see but make sure it’s the unrated version.
