Doctor Butcher M.D.,
This review is from: Zombie Holocaust Dr Butcher MD [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Doctor Butcher MD was the US title for Marino Girolami's Zombie Holocaust, a shameless cash-in on Lucio Fulci's classic gorefest Zombi 2 (aka Zombie Flesh-Eaters).It also stars one of the lead actors from Fulci's flick, Ian McCulloch, and uses by the looks of it some footage from ZFE too.If you enjoy daft Italian horror flicks like Burial Ground and Hell of the Living Dead, you should get a kick out of Zombie Holocaust.There's plenty of ludicrous gore on display including dismemberment, cannibalism, eye gougings, scalpings and brain surgery.Also,lots of hilarious dialogue to keep you chuckling throughout.Don't buy ZH expecting a serious horror movie, if you do, you're in for a big disappointment. It's basically a laugh-a-minute splatter flick for trash film fanatics.Incidentally, back in the 90s I tried to import the US version, Doctor Butcher MD, from the States, only to have it seized and confiscated by UK customs for being obscene.So, there's another recommendation for you!
