More Info IMDb

As George Romero's '70s zombie craze dug in stateside, filmmaker Fulci was the rabid, raging Italian that brought European flesh-eating to the forefront. His semi-intelligent, unstoppable, no-rules throat-rippers made the American undead look about as threatening as a bag of oatmeal. In this, his purest triumph of gratuitous violence, mankind goes face-to-rotted-face with the corpse contingent's inevitable world domination. The survivors escape to a remote island, where a sweatshop scientist is bent on coming up with any means to exterminate the creatures that are devouring civilization. In addition to being one of the prime examples of its genre and spawning countless imitations (including a few by Fulci himself), ZOMBIE features two of the most unforgettable moments in reanimated horror: the Ultimate Shark VS. Zombie Death Match, and the Splintered Wood VS. Eyeball Challenge. Guess who wins that one. (Zack)
