Trivia

In the original script, the skull which flies out of the freezer was not included - it was added by Lucio Fulci. He later remarked that he felt it was one of the most clever things he had come up with, and was the only thing about the movie he was truly proud of. See more »

Goofs

When Commander Bryant is explaining to Professor Holder that not even the military were aware of the potency of Death One (after Holder's line, "You should have told us about the risks involved!") the shadow of a camera is visible on the wall behind the General. See more »

That'll fix ya, you friggin' monsters!
11 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now, everyone knows you can't fix those monsters. It is no secret that there is a Zombi 4 and 5, so they don't win, after all.

The biggest surprise is that there are zombie birds in this film. I bet you never saw that before! My guess is that the chicken in the film is a zombie, too, and that is how we get to see 4 & 5.

I never saw a zombie head pop out before either. I didn't know a head could operation without a body.

My main complaint with this film however is that nobody takes the time to shower. All those lovely girls and no showers. I want to see zombie attacks in the shower!
