Alternate Versions

Although the Anchor Bay version is uncut in terms of gore, it is actually missing some brief footage (a few frames at a time) during a few scenes:
  • The opening frames have been slightly trimmed, as well as the opening music.
  • The scene with the professor holding up his gun has been shortened.
  • The phone booth scene is missing some footage.
  • The shark attack sequence has been slightly cut.
  • A full frontal nudity shot of Olga Karlatos in the shower is missing. Reportedly, the upcoming Shriek Show DVD under the title "Zombi 2" will restore all the above cuts that were trimmed from the Anchor Bay Release
