more of a cannibal movie,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zombie Holocaust  [DVD] (DVD)
Zombie holocaust aka Dr Butcher M.D was rushed into production off the back of Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 aka zombie flesh eaters. It even uses some of the same cast in ian mc culloch and used some of the same sets too ! To call this a zombie film though is misleading. Dr Butcher is a much better title and more reprsentitive of the films story. There are only 2 zombies in the whole film and even then they don't do much except moan and groan and scare away the cannibals ! This if anything id more of a cannibal movie which includes a mad doctor. The gore fx are well done and the whole thing zips by at a lightning pace so it never outstays it's welcome. Its not as good as some of the italian horrors but its much better than some of the later ones that peppered the 80's. The best edition is the region 1 edition as the transfer is better and there are some features as well.
