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
Like many Italian movies shot for the international market, most of the cast delivered their lines in English and were then re-dubbed for the US release anyway. Only a few members of the cast actually spoke Italian. See more »
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 »
In the Italian-language version, the characters who become zombies (including the radio DJ) have pitch-shifted "scary" voices when they speak. See more »
Although it's not as creepy as it's cult classic predecessor (ZOMBI 2) I actually like this one better. This is because of it's faster pace, better settings, and cool 80's soundtrack. It's loaded with action and has sweet gore effects by Lucio Fulci. The zombies don't quite look as nasty as in ZOMBI 2 but they still look good. It was made pretty well but it definitely has it's share of cheesiness; for instance some zombies move really slow while others are as quick as ninjas. some are braindead while others say funny lines, but who expects consistency when it comes to Italian horror? There's even a flying zombie head! How rad is that? Definitely a must see for gorehounds and zombie fans. it'd probably satisfy most fans of action movies as well. Also check out Zombi 4.
