Lucio Fulci's "Zombi 2" is by far his most famous contribution to the genre.The make-up effects by Gianetto de Rossi are amazing and the direction by maestro Fulci creates unremitting vile monsters and a real sense of decay,horror and hopelessness.The gore in some parts is extreme(I love especially the scene when Auretta Gay has her throat torn out),but this is not the goriest Italian zombie flick ever made.Andrea Bianchi's "Burial Ground" is much more gorier.However I must agree with Trooper8-2 that mainstream American zombie flicks like "Return of the Living Dead" or similar politically correct garbage are nowhere near as explicit as Italian gorefests.The plot is simple:Tisa Farrow and Ian MacCulloch travel to the island of Matool in search of her missing father.Unfortunately for them and their two companions(Al Cliver and Auretta Gay)they are thrown into a nightmare of undead.Many people say that "Zombi 2" is a "Dawn of the Dead" rip-off,I absolutely disagree because other than the presence of the zombies there is nothing in common between the two.Check it out if you're an Euro-horror fan,but if you like American trendy "horror flicks" like "Scream" then stay away.Highly recommended.
