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
Ottaviano Dell'Acqua's hair and beard are visibly longer in the scenes shot after Lucio Fulci left, such as when he is fighting the bald zombie at the abandoned kiosk, and his final scene with the anti-contamination squad. See more »

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 »
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 »
I can't even began to write a review on this movie as my i.q. has dropped so sharply after watching it. Everything about it, from the atrocious acting to the recycled theme played throughout spoke of utter garbage. It's a miracle we made it all the way through the movie. Weapons are randomly placed throughout the town such as a crate of machine guns in the basement of a motel or a grenade under a jeep that had the blast radius of an atomic bomb. Don't even get me started on the dialog. It was garbage, garbage, garbage!!! For some reason the characters felt they had to spell out everything for us. Like when their car would break down they would say "Looks like our car broke down. I'm going to go to that abandoned gas station right over there and see if i can find some water" - this brings me to my next point - the director's obsession with water. At least three times the characters would wander off alone in search of water as if it was a miracle cure for the zombie disease. It's killing me to write this so i have to stop now. A warning for all those planning to see this movie: don't. You will walk away a mindless, babbling zombie yourself.
