NOT a classic
11 June 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Had to write in response to the many posts here claiming that this film is "great fun", and should be seen by anybody who liked Fulci's "Zombie". First of all, Zombie Holocaust is in no way on a par with Fulci's film, it's not even close. Fulci's Zombie had some cheese, but it also had some pretty decent production values, generally good effects, great make-up, convincing zombies, and was always entertaining. This film is slow and boring, misleading (there's actually very little zombie action, it's mostly about cannibals), and just generally stupid and amateurish. As far as the gore goes, this doesn't offer nearly the same outlandish gruesomeness as Fulci's film, the gore effects are quite fake-looking and silly, and there is never a moment of real tension, whereas Fulci does manage to achieve some suspense. Disappointing in a major way, not even really fun on the so-bad-it's-good level. Don't be taken in by the references to Fulci's zombie films, real horror fans will only laugh at this film (and not in the good way) and be bored.
