As always Italian director Lucio Fulci brings stellar kills and a killer score with the ‘sequel’ to Romero’s Dawn of the Dawn (Italian title is Zombi) in which remote island horrors reach the island of Manhattan in the form of a zombie. Basic story, a daughter goes searching for her father who’s gone missing after trying to cure the recent epidemic of the dead walking on tropical Matul Island. Little does she and her newfound sailing friends know that there’s no hope on that island or that it’s already reached the shores of New York. Whether it’s a wooden stick through the eye, a zombie attacking a shark, or watching Mia Farrow’s sister deal with the zombie apocalypse, Zombie ticks all the living dead boxes and then some.
