A Zombie is found aboard an abandoned boat off the New York coast which belongs to do a famous scientist. Peter West, a journalist, hears of the disappearance and heads to the boat to snoop around, where he inadvertently meets Ann, the daughter of the lost scientist who is also snooping around the boat for any clues that might lead her to her missing father. The duo travel to the Antilles to find out what happened to Ann's missing father and get any other information they can. They meet Brian, a ethnologist, and Susan, his "lady friend", who offer them a ride to the Island of Matu (the last known whereabouts of the missing scientist). When they arrive at Matu Island they find Dr. Menard who is searching for the cause and cure of a recent epidemic of a strange virus that is "bringing the dead back to life". They all too soon realize that this epidemic is more than any of them anticipated. Is it science or Island Voodoo? Will Peter get his story or more than he bargained for? Will Ann find her father? Will they all make it out alive?! This is the fuckin movie that introduced me to Lucio Fulci and I absolutely love it! A classic among zombie flicks, this one goes above and beyond most. Zombi 2 (known in the US as Zombie) is Lucio Fulci's loosely based sequel to Zombi (which is actually the Italian title of George A. Romero's' Dawn Of The Dead). Featuring some of the most gruesome and gory scenes I have ever seen in a Zombie movie, it's an amazing spectacle of bloody gleeful mayhem that die hard Gore Hounds crave! You ever want to see a zombie fight a shark? It's in here. Ever wonder what it would look like to see a woman get her throat ripped out by an undead flesh eater? It's all here. A great movie by the "Godfather of Gore" himself Lucio Fulci. This movie looks amazing, great cinematography, a perfect, haunting soundtrack that really drives the movie and brings the terror on home. If you're a horror fan than you should really do yourself a favor and watch this movie! Get it now! I give it 5 out of 5 stabs to the fuckin' dome!
