Storyline

When a terrorist's body, infected with a stolen chemical, is recovered by the US military, the corpse is cremated, unintentionally releasing the virus/bacteria into the atmosphere over a small island. Soon the infected populace mutate into flesh-hungry zombies, and a trio of soldiers on leave must team up with a group of tourists and board themselves up in an abandoned hotel as they try to fend off the agile and aggressive living dead.

I was relieved to be finished with this one. It is pretty damn awful
1 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2. This is an unofficial sequel, but I'd like to say it doesn't even deserve to be mentioned alongside Zombi 2. The storyline is completely inane, and the effects are utterly atrocious. We get this green like substance on people, whenever they get infected, and it doesn't look convincing at all. Unlike Zombi, where they were truly blood curdling, they look laughable here, and not even remotely threatening. I had trouble paying attention in this one, simply because it's so damn dull, and not much happens. There are zombie attacks, but they lack suspense and excitement. In Zombi 2, you were in fear by the zombies. They moved very slowly and the attacks were filled with tension. This movie reminds me of another horrible zombie film called Hell of The Living Dead. It has terrible dubbing. The actors are simply awful because of it. Beatrice Ring is disposable fodder, and nothing more. There is a scene where a woman gets shoved off a balcony into some water, and a guy goes to save her. He brings her to the surface, and she attacks him. How's that for gratitude? I didn't find this movie to be particularly gory, either. We get a spike in the chin, cut off arm, blood splashing, some zombie bites, but it's not that great. Lucio Fulci became sick and had to leave this project. Bruno Mattei & others took over, and it shows. Even for die hard zombie fans, I'd have trouble recommending this. Watch Nightmare City for an entertainingly cheesy zombie film, and avoid this like the plague

1/10
