One more from Fulci.
Zombi 2 (Zombie in the U.S.) is a spiritual sequel to Dawn of the Dead. What I mean by that is that when Dawn of the Dead found its way to Europe they renamed it Zombi. When Fulci saw how successful the movie was he decided to re-shoot it in his own image. The result was Zombi 2.
Before you get too up in arms, other than this little tidbit the too movies share almost nothing in common.
The plot involves a boat, a doctor, voodoo and an island. What sets this movie apart is that special effects which are some of the best in the business – you’ll almost believe you’re sitting at the razors edge of the Zombie Apocalypse.
If you want to know more about the film, I suggest taking a cue from the good folks at Best Horror Movie. Not only is it a great site, but they will tell you in great detail why you need to watch this movie.
The lesson? Never invite Zombies to a picnic, they are terrible guests.
