The make-up effects were done by renowned Italian Giannetto De Rossi. The make-up for the zombies was "caked" on in several stages and Lucio Fulci, the director, constantly referred to the extras as "walking flower pots". See more »
When the homicide detective is questioning Tisa Farrow's character on the boat he says a member of the "coast guard" was killed. The man who was killed on the boat at the beginning was clearly a member of the New York City Police Department. See more »

Zombie is right up there with Romero's films in terms of quality. You don't have to be a zombie fan to like this film. Directed by Lucio Fulci, this movie is one of the best Italian horror films ever made. It's a shame it's not as famous as Romero's series.
The visuals are creepy and outstanding. The way the light and shadows reflect add so much to the movie. The gore is outstanding and will make any normal person want to turn away. Make sure you see this on DVD as I saw it on an old VHS and the dialog did not sync very will with the picture.
The style is absolutely amazing from the visuals to the synthesized soundtrack. I normally hate 70's sounding electronic music but this soundtrack really emphasizes the feeling of dread in this movie.
The final shots are hypnotizing and (as with all other zombie movies) even though the acting could have been better, the suspense of the finale makes this a movie I would recommend to any horror fan.
