Zombi 2, 1979.
Headaches be damned, Rachel and I are going to watch this lovely film on the big screen at midnight tonight. Presented in glorious 35MM. So excited - believe it or not, I’ve never seen Zombie in a theatre. Can not wait.
ZOMBIE // Friday, January 11, 2013 // Midnite
To horror/zombie fans, Lucio Fulci’s 1979 gut-muncher needs no introduction. An unofficial Italian sequel to George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead, Fulci’s jungle island freakout is truly its own beast, and is a horror tale that owes more to the classic voodoo iteration of the zombie rather than Romero’s modern-age reboot. But forget all that — as there’s a real reason this is regarded as a classic: the wonderful, wonderful gore and make-up effects that Fulci slathers onto the screen with reckless, joyful abandon. All of his stylistic trademarks are present: the creeping dread, the dream-logic hysteria, the eye trauma — all wrapped into one magnificent zombified package, and set to the relentless beat of a voodoo drum score (courtesy of Italian horror movie music stalwart Fabio Frizzi.) We didn’t have space to squeeze Zombie into this past October’s “Video Nasties” retrospective, so don’t miss your chance to see this staple of the genre in glorious 35mm. We are going to eat you! NOTE: the actual start time of this show will be closer to 12:15AM.
Dir. Lucio Fulci, 1979, 35mm, 91 min.
