Reviews by Idiots – Zombi 2 – 1979 – Rob’s #3

Strangers searching for a young woman’s missing father arrive at a tropical island where a doctor desperately searches for the cause and cure of a recent epidemic of the undead – Zombi 2 – 1979.

Zombi 2 is a 1979 zombie film directed by Lucio Fulci. The film was adapted from an original screenplay by Dardano Sacchetti to serve as a sequel to George A. Romero‘s Dawn of the Dead, released in Italy as Zombi. It stars Tisa Farrow, Ian McCulloch and Richard Johnson, and featured a score by frequent Fulci collaborator Fabio Frizzi.

The film tells the story of a Caribbean island cursed by voodoo, whose dead residents rise as zombies to attack the living. A scientist’s daughter journeys to the island after her father’s boat turns up abandoned in New York City. Intended as a return to “classic zombie tales” by its writer, Zombi 2 was filmed in Italy, with further location shooting in New York and Santo Domingo.

This is Rob Sacchetto’s official number 3.  For an older movie, this one has some crazy moments and gore.  A must watch for any zombie fans.  A ZOMBIE FIGHTS A SHARK UNDERWATER!!  UNDERWATER!!  That alone is completely worth the price of admission!
