An apparently abandoned yacht drifts into New York Harbor, and the Harbor Patrol investigates. A young woman named Anne Bowels (Tisa Farrow) is questioned by the police when it is discovered that the boat belonged to her father (Ugo Bologna). In the end, all of the island's inhabitants and Susan fall victim to the walking dead; Brian is also infected and dies soon afterwards.
Zombi 2's incredible success in Europe re-ignited Fulci's sagging career and reinvented the director as a horror maven. Despite the massive popularity of the film, Zombi 2 was banned in several countries due to the massive gore content, including Great Britain. Zombi 2's massive European box office take also paved the way for three more sequels, which, like their predecessor, have no relation to any of the other films in the series — they all have self-contained plots. Zombi 2 was released merely as Zombie in America and was considered a stand-alone film with no connection to Romero's zombie canon.
The film developed a massive cult following after its release on home video, although a series of public domain releases featured a muddy full screen transfer of the film that angered hardcore fans.
Five years later, Blue Underground and Media Blasters, the latter of which used their Shriek Show horror banner, struck a deal to release the film on DVD yet again, this time with a newly remastered, uncut version of the film. Also worth noting are the differences between the 2004 Media Blasters release and the 1998 Anchor Bay release, which often get confused. Arrow Films on 3 December 2012 released a Blu-Ray (with the UK Zombie Flesh Eaters title) with a brand new high definition restoration of the original negative with optional English and Italian opening sequence. Both Arrow and Blue Underground's blu-rays are  fully-loaded with hours of brand new extras, it is debatable which has the best extras and transfer.
The other films in the Zombi series made it to America as video releases--none were released theatrically in the States. This film was #98 on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments for the scene when a zombie pulls a victim towards a spike.
The newspaper office scene was filmed in a busy office building, and at one point the cast and crew inadvertently interrupted a meeting held by Rupert Murdoch, who angrily kicked them out. As shown in trailers before the film was released, airline "barf bags" were handed out to theater moviegoers due to the unusually high amount of violence and gore for a horror film of that time. After the four heroes escape from the cottage, the camera cuts to a closeup of the jeep window. In the last scene, the radio announcer in New York City states that the governor has declared a state of national emergency. During the underwater scene where the zombie is fighting with the shark, the zombie's arm is bitten off by the shark. In the end scenes in the church, our heroes can be seen throwing bottles of kerosene at the zombies. Paola Menard is in the village cottage alone, when the zombies begin to threaten her safety and attack. When Brian fires a rifle at the shark from the boat, he fires the rifle multiple times very quickly. After Brian has killed the zombie that had attacked him he has a small drop of blood on the right armpit of his shirt. When the yacht is seen from the harbor patrol boat at a distance, it is stern on to the yacht. In the series, Sealab 2021 in the episode, "Green Fever" Quinn and Shanks are talking about the situation of everyone becoming a zombie.
It was re-submitted in 1999, and an "Extreme version" was passed, with only minimal cuts to the eye gouge scene, and the Zombie Feast Scene.


Despite the fact that the title alludes to the film being a sequel to Zombi (which is what Romero's Dawn of the Dead was released as in Europe), the films are not related. It was not a film created to "cash-in" on the original Zombi's popularity, however the name was taken in order to show a link between the films. On board, a huge rotting man (Captain Haggerty) kills Marty, one of the patrolmen, by tearing out his neck with his teeth. She does not know anything except that her father left for a tropical island to do research. Peter and Anne manage to escape by boat, taking the now undead Brian with them as evidence for their story. Fulci would go on to direct several more horror films, and Zombi 2 introduced several of his trademarks: zombies, hyper-realistic gore and blood, and the infamous "eyeball gag" (a character is impaled or otherwise stabbed through the eyeball).
While the Zombi series proved to be incredibly lucrative, Zombi 2 is by far the most recognizable of the European zombie films.
The theatrical trailers for Zombie provided the memorable tagline of "We Are Going to Eat You!" and showcased some of the make-up effects, but did nothing to indicate the plot of the picture (although the audience was indeed warned about the graphic content of the film: a humorous crawl at the end of the preview promises "barf bags" to whoever requested them upon viewing the film).
In the late 1990s, the film was released on DVD and laserdisc by Anchor Bay and The Roan Group respectively. Now truly complete and no longer muddy looking, the two DVDs were released with Media Blasters using the film's original name Zombi 2 while Blue Underground released the film under the Americanized Zombie name. While Anchor Bay has a history of showing a great deal of respect for the preservation of purity in original director approved and uncut film releases, the 1998 Anchor Bay release of 'Zombi 2' inexplicably has a few minutes of footage omitted which can be found still intact in the 2004 Media Blasters release. It was oddly missing a few seconds of the yacht in the bay after the opening credits, this was corrected and discs reissued. The make-up for the zombies was "caked" on in several stages and Lucio Fulci, the director, constantly referred to the extras as "walking flower pots". They look so similar that some people have speculated that all the zombies were played by one man. Reflected in the window is the arm of a crewmember, and when the camera pulls away you can see the head of a crewmember wearing a hat.
Menard is driving and discussing the zombie plague with the visitors, the "clean" part of the jeep's windshield (i.e.
However, we see him with the arm after he loses it, and without the arm before it is bitten off.
The first one explodes into flames on the floor, but the following three bottles are all thrown into space where there is no fire. The rifle he is using is a bolt action rifle, which must have a bolt part moved before each fire. Below, there are cars on both sides of the bridge driving to and from the island with absolutely no concern for the chaos that is supposedly taking place. However, when the yacht is viewed through binoculars by one of the boats crew, it is side on. Some time later the distributer decided to release a "Strong Uncut Version" on video, which caused it to be placed on the DPP's list of "Video Nasties". Apparently, the BBFC didn't have a problem passing the movie uncut, but as it was still classed as prosecuted for obscenity, they couldn't by law.
When the film was released in 1979, it was scorned for its extremely bloody content but was still a tremendous worldwide commercial success. Dawn was re-edited and re-scored for European markets by Romero's collaborator, Italian horror master Dario Argento. The remaining patrolman Bill manages to knock the hulking man into the sea by blasting him with his revolver several times.


A reporter named Peter West (Ian McCulloch) is assigned by his news editor (director Lucio Fulci in a cameo) to get the story on the mysterious boat. Matool is a cursed place where the dead rise to attack the living, and Menard is determined to find out why. Shortly after the group leaves the island and reaches the open ocean they receive a radio message that, to their great horror and dismay, the undead have attacked New York City. The actor scheduled to fight the shark was unable to perform the day the sequence was to be shot, so the shark's trainer was used instead. Although Fulci's detractors labeled the film as a cheap attempt to cash in on the success of Dawn of the Dead, it is interesting to note that the Zombi 2 screenplay was actually completed before Dawn of the Dead premiered (hence the lack of connection between the two films). The opening and closing scenes (which take place in New York) were added to the script later when the producers wanted to cash-in on the success of Dawn. The Media Blasters release also contained a second disc filled with bonus material, which made their release slightly more desirable as opposed to the less expensive bare-boned Blue Underground release.
Both feature comparable digitally remastered, anamorphic widescreen transfers, as well as the same bonus materials, but only the 2004 Media Blasters release can truly be considered "uncut". This is not necessarily a goof, as it is revealed on the DVD special features that the crew did not have permission from New York City to make the shot, and did so by illegally flooding the bridge with actors. In 2005 it was finally passed uncut, and released as a box set with a few other of the Video Nasties. Argento released his new version of Dawn of the Dead as Zombi and treated it as a standalone story, not a continuation of Romero's Night of the Living Dead. Anne and Peter meet on the boat and decide to work together after finding a note from Anne's father. Menard's contemptous, highly-strung wife Paola (Olga Karlatos) wants to leave the island in fear of the zombie attacks.
Marty, the policeman killed by the zombie - and his killer itself - have infected the New York population, explosively multiplying the zombie army beyond any hope of control. The other infamous scene is where a character has her eye gouged out on a splintered piece of wood very slowly and painfully.
Lead actor Ian McCulloch, who is British, never actually had the opportunity to watch the film until he recorded a commentary for a DVD release of Zombi 2 some twenty-two years later, and was shocked at the gore level. But more complaints were made about the transfer, which was still dark and muddy a la the film's original VHS release. Worth noting is that despite using the same if not similar print, the Media Blasters and Blue Underground releases differ slightly in their video. The note says that he is on the island of Matool and that he has come down with a strange disease. This scene in particular was edited from many previous releases, but is intact on all three current DVD versions. The colors appear the most vibrant in the Media Blasters edition, although skintones tend to look a little orange and the image is slightly brighter, while the sharpness of the picture is slightly less than the Blue Underground edition.
Anne and Peter enlist the aid of a seafaring couple, Brian Hull (Pier Luigi Conti) and Susan Barrett (Auretta Giannone), to help find Matool.
When Anne, Peter, Brian, and Susan reach Matool, the island itself seems to come alive, vomiting forth all the dead buried on the island to kill them.
