Zombi 2 (Zombie Flesh Eaters) (1979)

A Zombie is found aboard a boat off the New York coast which belongs to do a famous scientist. Peter West,a journalist, travels to the Antilles with Ann, the daughter of the scientist. On the way, they meet with with Brian, a ethnologist, and Susan. When they arrive at Matul Island, they find Dr. Menard, and discover a terrifying diease which is turning the Islanders into horrifying Zombies which devour human flesh and seem indestructable….

Though not director Lucio Fulci’s best film, Zombie AKA Zombi 2 will always be his best known. Attempting to build off of the Italian box office success of George A Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, but hearkening back more to the old-style voodoo island zombie films of the 1940s to lessen the extent to which it can be considered merely an inferior knock-off, it’s a competently put together film that more than delivers the goods as far as it’s raison d’etre of gory thrills is concerned, never more spectacularly than in the justly (in)famous wooden splinter through the eye gag.
