Zombie (1979)
Movie Review by The Undertaker
10.30.01

Zombie (1979) It's called Zombi 2 and Zombie Flesh Eaters in other parts of the world. This is the one that got things going for Fulci even though he'd been making movies for many years. Zombie was the 1st and thus far only film I wasn't let in to see. So, it's my 1st Fulci film, and it isn't. When it played the theatre here in our small town, I went with my mom and a friend with high hopes. I'd read about it in FM and was ready! It was rated R, so we thought, however we soon learned when trying to buy tickets that no one under 17 was being let in. Period. Mom or no mom, it was too bloody and gruesome the lady said. Damn, I was pissed, and a little scared. Could it be that bad? I saw it years later on video and I thought it was great. It would have scared me shitless though if I had been able to see it that night. This is the most fun film of his to watch for me personally, not his best or my favorite, but the most fun. As for straight zombie films, I'd throw it right up there with anything. The voodoo aspect in this film makes it seem more authentic to the zombie mythos itself. Something very few zombie movies have attempted to explore aside from a few older movies. The drums on the sound track spook me every time. Where else are you gonna find a zombie vs. shark scene? Do I need bring up the splinter? The atmosphere on the island just seems like the perfect zombie film to me. The make-up FX speak for themselves. De Rossi and Fulci were a magic combination starting right here. To me, this is THE Italian zombie film. This is how they should look, feel, and bleed. This set my personal standard. For someone unfamiliar with Fulci's work, this is a great staring point. Hey, you have to work your way up to The Beyond. I've seen a few other Euro zombie films that come close, but Zombi 2 still ranks # 1 in these eyes.
