THEY WILL RISE TO SUCK THE BLOOD OF THE LIVING!
From the sleazy video nasty vaults comes a movie so stained with controversy and moral indignation that the very mention of its name sends shudders down the spines of the weak stomached and censorious Zombie Flesh Eaters. A gut-munching, shark wrestling, eye-gouging orgy of topless skin divers, mud-caked undead terror and Italian splatter from the dark imagination of horror genius Lucio Fulci (The Beyond, City of The Living Dead).
An abandoned boat in New York Harbour unleashes a deadly flesh crazed Zombie cargo... A Young American woman and a journalist investigate a tropical island where a deadly disease is making the dead walk... Soon, thoughts of getting to the bottom of the murderous curse will be forgotten, as Fulci s walking corpses overwhelm the living and reports come in that the Big Apple is swarming with the living dead...
After over thirty years, Zombie Flesh Eaters still has the power to shock and offend the unwilling... Check out this classic sadist video and revel in a wonderfully tasteless movie that once helped usher in a moral panic!

The acting is up to par and does not go over board with the hysterics. But only one actor stands out and that is Richard Johnson a British actor who steals every scene he is in.
The film is loaded with Zombies and many ideas and scenes will show up in future zombie flicks. The scene underwater with zombies taking on sharks is easily one of the great horror moments filmed in the genre.
Lots of gore and a story that does not interfere with the action make this a classic zombie film to be in any collectors DVD library. Fulci fans will definitely want this and the Beyond as they are probably the director's best works. True classics
As for the infamous eyeball puncturing scene, you may want to look away if your squeamish, because it still makes me squirm even today, and that's coming from someone who thought he had seen it all and was pretty much desensitized to horror. The picture quality is excellent, hardly surprising since they have refurbished it for this edition, and as a result it looks as if it was made only recently, rather than 36 years ago, hard to believe really.
If you love horror, or zombie movies in general, this is an instant classic that you should add to your collection straight away, you won't be disappointed.
Zombie Flesheaters punches way past its weight with plenty of original and imaginative shock moments. The underwater scene alone is just an all time favourite classic for me.
The soundtrack needs its own mention as its one of the best, an amazing and unforgettable heavy synth theme which runs throughout and really adds to the impact of the film when it comes in.
To me with the addition of such a strong soundtrack and catchy distinctive theme the film has kind of a spaghetti western zombie feel to it.
Romero may hold the zombie genre crown but for me Flesheaters is the most enjoyable and fun one that stands up to the most repeat viewings.
N.B did not come with booklet as stated in description which is a shame
Often touted as a rip off of Romero's Dawn of the Dead- well it isn't, the story is completely different, if anything it was a response to how popular Romero had made the zombie genre. Italian cinema had struck hot once before, with Night Train Murders being a response to Wes Craven's Last House on the Left.
This film caused huge controversy in England when it was put on the infamous video nasties list, and even when it was granted a release was heavily cut. At last I can watch the eye impalement and many more gross out scenes, courtesy of this release from Arrow.
The story itself runs along ok, although the actors and dubbing aren't great. But the film keeps you hooked in, switching from the shores of Manhattan to a Caribbean island, indeed one is reminded of such classics as I Walked With a Zombie.
It is of course a Fulci movie which means gross out gore scenes and they are here. Sometimes you have to wait inbetween a lot of talking, which admittingly feels like babbling- blame the average script, but its worth the wait. Fulci directs very well on a limited budget and the shark scene if anything is something quite different.
A good movie, nowhere near touching base with Romero's original trilogy, but uncut Zombie Flesh Eaters is a pleasant surprise, not for the squeamish.
