Zombie on 35mm

When George A. Romero’s classic DAWN OF THE DEAD became a big hit in Italy under the title ZOMBI, it wasn’t long before the local film industry began taking advantage of its success. Producer Fabrizio de Angelis decided to back the in-name-only sequel ZOMBI 2 and chose giallo veteran Lucio Fulci to direct, and the result (released Stateside as ZOMBIE) became an influential film itself. Returning to the voodoo-oriented roots of zombie lore, Fulci spins a tale of a group of Americans traveling to a Caribbean island, where the dead have begun rising from their graves in search of human flesh. Eerie atmosphere, a pulsing score by Fabio Frizzi and Fulci’s no-holds-barred approach to gore (including the infamous eyeball scene) make ZOMBIE just as shocking today as it was when first released four decades ago. It’s especially horrifying on the big screen, so come experience its gruesome sights in 35mm!
