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. Written by Scott Lister

Crazy Credits

The opening credits appear over footage of three separate groups of characters travelling to the same destination (the helipad outside the chemical plant). All three groups converge once the credits end. See more »

Alternate Versions

American DVD release by Media Blasters subsidiary Shriek Show contains the infamous pre-credit sequence missing from most prints, as well as two other full scenes cut from the original US version: one where the infected terrorist flees to a hotel and demands a room, and another where Nancy and Suzanna watch over Lia. Most scenes of violence also include material that was censored in earlier releases. The original print of the film was taken from the original 35mm Italian negative, while most of the additional material had to be taken from a 1-inch video master and is of noticeably poorer quality. This print of the film is the longest running version available. See more »

Fun zombie trash.
16 August 2003 | by DarkReflectionSee all my reviews

Very fun (because it's stupid) zombie flick which may not have the style of Fulci's other work (considering he only directed 15 minutes of the film), but it's a very mindlessly entertaining, suspenseful, and fun ride. Has great action scenes, a none-too-serious atmosphere, and a stable script. Most of the direction (by noted hack Bruno Mattei) is pretty uninspired and trashy, but the film is great entertainment material. The zombies seem to go from intelligent and fast to slow and dumb at the drop of the dime! (I guess it depended on who was in the director's chair). It may be poorly made, but it's still great fun with some silly gore scenes. Check it out!
