Fulci's horror film about the dead coming back to life on a small Caribbean island
This low-budget terror motion picture deals with a group who run into a pack natives coming back to life by means of voodoo epidemic that reanimates them and terrorizing an unnamed Caribbean island .This clever horror movie deals about an ever-dwindling group of adventurers formed by a journalist ( Ian McCulloch ), the scientist's daughter ( Tisa Farrow ) and two tourists looking for the father one of them . They are afflicted by stalking, vicious flesh-eating stiffs relieved by voodoo and a doctor ( Richard Johnson ) in practicing experimentation on the dead to obtain an antidote . Meanwhile the quarter is investigating the strange events the doctor's wife (Olga Karlatos ) is attacked by the Zombies.
Gory, gruesome , pretty repellent , and ghastly cannibal feast in which the stumbling flesh-eating stiffs are reanimated by voodoo and can be only destroyed by fire in the brain . Unrelenting shock-feast laced with brief touches of black humor . Army of Zombies appearance roaming the countryside , village and some people besieged inside a cottage deliver the goods , enough to be interesting . Lucio Fulci's main great success is compelling directed with startling visual content and nice production by Fabrizio De Angelis ; furthermore special mention to excellent make-up by the magnificent craftsman Gianetto De Rossi. This frightening movie is plenty of thrills, chills, body-count executed by the eerie Zombies and photographed in pallid color with lurid images and phenomenal results . This is a classic excruciatingly Zombie film where the intrigue,tension, suspense appears threatening and lurking in the sunny outdoors and every room, and corridors from a boat , hospital , a shack , jungle and many other places . At the time considered the plus ultra of thoroughly disturbing movie is less stomach-churning by nowadays's standards, yet its fundamental power to thrill remains undiminished. Agreeable performance by Tisa Farrow, Mia's sister , Richard Johnson , Al Cliver and Olga Karlatos . Watch for the great highlights as when a sliver of door punctures the eyeball -a Fulci's mark who repeats ad nauseum - of one unfortunate and a zombie fighting a large shark , plus the living dead walking over the bridge towards New York City . This genuinely frightening story with correct utilization of images-shock is well photographed by Sergio Salvati on location of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic , Isla Mujeres , Mexico and Elios studios, Lazio, Rome . Creepie and eerie musical score by Frizzi , in Goblin style. Lucio Fulci who also made other good terror films as ¨ From beyond , House by the cemetery and New York ripper ¨ creates a rare Zombie thriller that manages to be both scary and skilfully made, deserving its cult status . Rating: Good, this is one more imaginative horror pictures in which the camera stalks in sinister style . It's just one long unrelenting cannibal feast and average budget horror movie that still packs a punch for those who like to be terrorized out their wits.
