This classic established Lucio Fulci as one of Italy’s most popular horror directors during the 70’s. Alternatively titled just plain “Zombie,” it was intended as a spiritual successor to Dawn of the Dead. We thought it succeeded.
My favorite zombie movie of all time. My dad took my brother and me to see this at a drive-in when I was far too young for it, but it left a lasting impression. It think it holds up today.
No kidding! I agree that it holds up tremendously. Have you seen any of Fulci’s other films? Thanks for listening! -Todd
Zombi 3, The Beyond, City of the Living Dead, House by the Cemetary. Any others you recommend?
Have you guys done Bava’s “Bay of Blood?” What an ending! Would make a great double feature with “You’re Next.”
Thanks for the recommendation! Bay of Blood is on my list, so I’ll bump it up so we review it soon. As for Fulci movies, it looks like you hit the biggies. I’m not sure I’ve seen any others.
How about Argento? Are you into giallo flicks at all?
I’ve seen quite a few Argento movies. My favorite is Deep Red. Also have a fondness for Four Flies on Grey Velvet. It’s built on a goofy premise, but is stylistically a lot of fun. It also has the best slow-motion death scene ever.
