Zombie horror. Strange behaviour and occasional cannibalism in a New York morgue leads a team of intrepid doctors to investigate a remote island populated by zombies. Members of the team are slowly, one by one, consumed by the flesh-eating terror, but Doctors Peter Chandler (Ian McCulloch) and Laurie Miller (Alexandra Delli Colli) manage to stay alive long enough to discover a mad doctor performing shocking experiments upon the undead.

Not sure when this film was made, late 70's or early 80's. A cannibal tribe is stealing body parts from cadavers at a New York Hospital. The hospital owners discover this and their investigations lead them on an expedition to a remote tropical island. They are accompanied by some journalists. The two lead actresses are highly attractive, one is exquisitely beautiful. One by one the members of the expedition are picked off by the cannibals, in fairly graphic style, though by today's standards not too gory. The island is also populated by a mad surgeon and the zombie beings which he creates, by transplanting the brains of the living into corpses. The zombies then do as the surgeon bids, which is perhaps even more risible than the notion the surgeon can bring back the dead. The scenes of killing and dismemberment are mildly stomach churning, but by comparison with more modern horrors such as Audition and Martyrs, not bad enough to make you cover your eyes. The prosthetics and latex special effects are of course now seriously dated, but not so awful as to ruin the film. The soundtrack is a burbly analogue bass synth, something Giorgio Moroder could have composed in his sleep. What spoils the film most is the inclusion of the zombies, because the first half of the film is about the cannibal tribe, and the zombies seem to have been thrown in as an afterthought. They walk at a snail's pace, which means they don't carry much menace, and their makeup is a let down. On the reverse side of the coin, the lead actress, who plays one of the doctors at the New York Hospital and is a member of the ill-fated expedition, is a seriously stunning beauty, who spends the last 10 minutes of the movie stripped naked by the cannibals, her body very sexily painted with beautiful flowers, awaiting her fate.Read more ›

The 1980 spaghetti splatter classic Zombie Holocaust makes it's UK Blu ray debut here from new genre label 88 Films as part of their Italian Collection range, presented completely uncut, uncensored and looking better than ever. This release comes complete with an insert booklet with notes by writer, director and film critic Callum Waddel, a postcard reproduction of the theatrical poster art and a reversible cover sleeve with an alternative more retro vibe.
Directed by Marino Girolami who was the father of the prolific Italian film director Enzo G Castelleri, Zombie Holocaust followed the similar but ultimately superior Lucio Fulci Italian walking dead flick Zombie Flesh Eaters, a movie which it so closely aped to the point where it plagurised locations, recycled second unit scenes and even recast stars Ian McCulloch and Dakar. Despite the similarities, Girolami's decidedly low rent movie could never hold a light to Fulci's glorious widescreen extravaganza. Often coming across as a hack job with weaker special effects, plodding narrative and incessant eletronic score from Nico Fidenco which sounded for all the world like a verbatim rehash of his work on Joe D'Amato's trashy Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals, this could be a chore to sit through for the uninitiated in the art of Italian exploitation. Plot holes abound, continuity is often sketchy and the plentiful gore looks like leftover butchers scraps but despite all of the minus points Zombie Holocaust remains thoroughly entertaining in a cheap grindhouse kind of way and can be so over the top in it's execution that fans of outrageous Euro schlock will definatly get their moneys worth.

Hahaha - a wonderful little grindhouse epic combining the cannibal genre with the zombie genre which exploded onto Italian screens in the 1970's and early 1980's . Ian McCulloch shines as he battles lumbering cadavers and gut munchers to find out the truth behind a loopy Doctors bizarre experiments. Expect all the usual fair from movies of this calibre - comic strip fun from start to finish - and a triumph in HD from those wondeful people at 88 Films - I love this !!!

Using the same cast, locations (and probably crew) this shocker came out on the coat tails of the legendary "Zombie Flesh Eaters".
Not quite as good as the aforementioned movie but none the less an excellent piece of Italian horror.
This one mixes the zombie genre with the cannibal genre and I would say that this one is more of a cannibal movie but the zombies are very nicely designed too.
A mad doctor is mucking about with brain transplants on a remote Caribean island and has created a bunch of living dead guys who are terrifying the local cannibal tribe.
Enter the mandatory investigative reporter and crew from New York who uncover the whole mess and then have to fight for survival, who will eat them first?
Very gory in some parts, this makes a great companion piece for it's predecessor.

This is a cheesy 80's film. In a badly dubbed NYC body parts are going missing and it appears to be the work of people from Kito, a South East Asian island. A small group goes to the island because....if makes a film. The island is filled with cannibals who prefer to eat raw innards or a nice stew. Oh yeah, there is a handful of zombies too. Yes they ransacked Laurie's apartment to steal a knife she had hanging on the wall. Bad rubber parts.

Of course when a pretty blonde is capture by a group of "savages" they must be stripped naked like Bo Derek or Ursala Andress. Don't blame me, I don't make the rules. Alexandra Delli Colli is a natural blonde.
