Zombi 2 (also known as Zombie, Island of the Living Dead, Zombie Island, Zombie Flesh Eaters and Woodoo) is a 1979 zombie horror film directed by Lucio Fulci. It is the best-known of Fulci's films.[1] The movie made Fulci a horror icon. Despite the fact that the title alludes to the film being a sequel to Zombi (the Italian title of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead), the films are unrelated. When the film was released in 1979, it was scorned for its extremely bloody content notably by the at the time Conservative British Parliament.[2].

At worst, people could see it as stupid and meaningless; as I once did. But this time, when I watched it and gave …

If one must speak of the Citizen Kane as far as zombie films concerned, I think one would probably mention either Romero's Dawn of the Dead or Fulci's Zombie. In fact, I almost hate to mention both in the same sentence as they are two different works of art & have very little in common although Zombie was marketed as a sequel to Dawn of the Dead only in Italy.     Fulci was, hands down, the king of splatter films in his time & don't think there ever was another director …
