Zombie Flesh Eaters

We've just endured yet another summer of bloated, boring, blockheaded blockbusters. For all the hundreds of millions of dollars spent, did any of them offer up anything as singular and memorable as the scene in the low-budget 1979 Italian shocker Zombie Flesh Eaters where a zombie has a fight with a shark? Italian cinema is full of rip-offs and cash-ins. Most have been forgotten by all but the most dedicated trash connoisseurs, but this is something different.

Director Lucio Fulci had toiled for years making spaghetti westerns, giallo, comedies, war movies, etc, so it was easy for critics to dismiss him as, at best, a journeyman, and at worst, a hack. But here we are looking at a lovingly restored Blu-ray of a movie that's over 30 years »
