Dr. Menard's wounded elderly friend Fritz's last name is Briggs. However, it is never ever mentioned in the movie at all. 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 »

Not many people know about this gem by Lucio Fulci. It's known by many titles: Zombie, Zombi 2, Zombi Flesh Eaters, and so on. The story is simple, a boat arrives in New York harbor with no one on-board except for an extremely obese zombie. The boat is own by a scientist doing research on the faraway island of Matool but he is not on the boat. So his daughter and a reporter head out to Matool to find out what happened to him. Well, little do they know that the island is cursed and inhabited by a large number of zombies. After arriving on the island with another couple who gave them a boat ride the action really starts to heat up until the fiery finale.
The style of this movie is really what makes it and that is in turn enhanced by Fabio Frizzi's haunting score. Most of the zombies in this movie look as if they've been dead and rotting for a long time, the way they SHOULD look and not with some blue makeup BS that occurs in many other zombie flicks. There are scenes in this movie that have to be seen to be believed like the shark vs. zombie underwater battle and when Dr. Menard's wife gets turned into a smörgåsbord for the undead.
Check it out zombie lovers and you won't be disappointed!
