  • Zombie Holocaust has one too many similarities to Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 , (although the latter is the more interesting one out of the two) for instance
  • The special effects are fantastic as they are with all of these Italian horror films (look out for a gruesome operation scene towards the end involving a brain extraction on a live and innocent woman), but the boring story line and the so-called zombies in this (if you want to call them that) are so uninteresting and disappointing that it makes Zombie Holocaust difficult to watch altogether

      Directed by: Marino Girolami.

      If you want a bad zombie movie, you just found one. “Zombie Holocaust” is a cult flick much like “Night of the Zombies”, “The Beyond”, and “Zombi 2″, all of which were apart of the Italian zombie horror film craze in the late 70s to early


      80s, inspired by the ultra success of 1978’s “Dawn of the Dead”. Much like “The Beyond”, “Zombi 2″, and so forth, “Zombie Holocaust” also sports a very thin budget and a weak script (very weak).

      “Zombie Holocaust” has one too many similarities to Lucio Fulci’s “Zombi 2″, (although the latter is the more interesting one out of the two) for instance: Both films star Ian McCulloch and Dakar, both films begin in New York City and end up on a tropical island, both movies have a main character named Peter, both films have similar shooting locations, and so on. Heck, “Zombie Holocaust” even borrows some footage from “Zombi 2″ (i.e. the burning church for instance).

      All that “Zombie Holocaust” does, for the most part, is that it takes the concept ...


      • Zombie Holocaust (1980)
      behind “Zombi 2″ and throws in some ideas from cannibalistic films like “Cannibal Holocaust” (1979). “Zombie Holocaust” pits its American cast of characters on a south-east Asian island with zombies who act and look more like crazed natives more than anything else.

      If I had a choice and I was stuck on a desert island, I’d pick “Zombi 2″ over this film. The special effects

      are fantastic as they are with all of these Italian horror films (look out for a gruesome operation scene towards the end involving a brain extraction on a live and innocent woman), but the boring story line and the so-called zombies in this (if you want to call them that) are so uninteresting and disappointing that it makes “Zombie Holocaust” difficult to watch altogether.
