Aka "Zombie Flesh Eaters"
Lucio Fulci directs this zombie flick in an attempt to capitalize off the success of George A. Romero's "Dawn of The Dead." An attempt that worked. This puppy grossed over 30 million - which is a whole lot o' loot back in '79.

Fulci lets the blood spray throughout this classic grindhouse masterpiece. It also has the greatest zombie scene ever in it. The underwater zombie versus shark scene. When the ravenous zombie takes a bite out of the shark its nothing short of brilliant. Please believe it.It starts off in NYC and then journeys through the Caribbean Islands where a whole island of these flesh eaters make their home. I could give ya the entire plot, but its not necessary. It is exactly what you expect it to be - a fuckin' the trailer...then post a comment, mofo!

Zombie + shark = grindhouse nirvana. That scene alone makes this film a classic.

I had the tremendous pleasure to catch this on the big screen a few years back. It's ridiculous in all the right ways.

the stuntman who plays the zombi must have held his breath for a good minute judging by the length of the take. Amazing stunt!

i saw this on 35MM in Hollywood a few years ago as a double-feature i believe with "Shockwaves" which also features underwater zombies (Nazi ones @ that!).

Isn't there a scene in this film where some chick gets a piece of wood stabbed in her eye by a zombie? Gruesome close-up. You won't see that anymore in today's films.

This is a zombie classic. I watched it again not long ago. It still holds up. I love it. I can't get enough of this film.
