When a supposedly abandoned yacht sails into New York Harbour, a journalist and scientists Daughter investigate only to find themselves in a zombie nightmare!
Zombie. Zombi 2. Island of the Living Dead. Zombie Flesh Eaters. Though it is known by many different names there is no doubting that this is one of the most well-known films in the zombie genre (and the film that put Fulci on the map as a ‘Godfather of Gore’). My first exposure to it was roughly 8 years ago, as I scoured the shelves of a local Blockbuster for a horror film. The tag line – “We are going to eat you!” – sounded so bad that I just had to try it. As someone who loved the Romero films, I thought it was a decent, if rather throwaway piece of shock entertainment.
