(aka "Zombie 2" or "Zombie Flesh-Eaters" or "Woodoo" or "Woodoo: Rædslernes grønne ø" )

 

directed by Lucio Fulci
Italy 1979

They really don't make them like they used to. Although I enjoyed the recent "Resident Evil" movie (against all expectations), it is sad to see how the zombie movie has gone downhill over the past couple of decades. Today's zombie movie is a kinder, gentler zombie movie. The camera oh-so-nimbly cuts away in time, lest you see any offensive grue. And the women in the new generation of zombie flicks are strong and capable, unlike their limp-dishrag sisters from the seventies who merely screamed and waited to be rescued by the man folk. That I don't mind, but on the downside, they just don't run around with their baps out as much as they used to. For all of its many flaws (emphasis on MANY), Lucio Fulci's 1979 B-movie near masterpiece "Zombie" (a.k.a. a slew of other titles) has enough worm-ridden zombie flesh, horrendously fake yet appalling gore, and completely superfluous female nudity to make this a winner.

Comments

NOTE: The below Blu-ray captures were taken directly from the Blu-ray disc.

ADDITION: Arrow - Region 'B' - Blu-ray - October 11': Arrow Films have come out with a new Blu-ray transfer of Lucio Fulci's Zombie Flesh-Eaters (aka Zombie etc.) It is cited as being a 'brand new high definition restoration of the original negative.' The Blu-ray has the option, aside from the Zombie Flesh-Eater title, to also 'branch' to 2 alternate title sequences (Zombie and Zombie 2).

According to Arrow’s notes on the restoration, it was mastered in 1080P from a 2K scan of the original 2-perf Techniscope camera negative with color grading, dirt and scratch removal, and frame repair performed at Deluxe Soho, London (under the supervision of James White, who also has worked on a number of impressive BFI and Masters of Cinema titles). The exposure of the entire 2-perf frame (which extends into the area occupied by the soundtrack on standard 4-perf spherical and anamorphic prints) reveals additional picture information on the sides and on the top of the frame, and the color and lighting levels are sometimes notably different to the Blue Underground master. Arrow has not undertaken any surround remixes of the audio elements, but the English and Italian mono tracks are very clean and the sound effects have a presence in mono that fans may have forgotten after years with the various directional remixes. Two English subtitle tracks are provided, with the one accompanying the Italian track revealing some interesting (but not startling) variations between the dubs.

About the Extras: The film is accompanied by two audio commentaries, the first with writer Elisa Briganti (wife of writer Dardano Sacchetti), and the second with author Stephen Thrower and critic Alan Jones. The Briganti track (moderated by Calum Waddell) focusing more on her working relationship with her husband with occasional reference to the onscreen action. It has been rumored that she was credited in place of Sacchetti as a tax dodge or that she did the revisions when Sacchetti’s father died, but Briganti reveals that she collaborated quite a lot with her husband and income tax figured into whether she or Sacchetti received sole or joint credit. She did not meet any of the cast members during the shoot but has connected with them at film festivals, and she discusses collaborating with Sacchetti on his works for Mario Bava and Dario Argento. The Thrower/Jones track is composed of almost equal parts production factoids, anecdotes of both men’s turbulent relationships with Fulci when promoting his films or trying to interview him, and analyzing the various rumors and myths that have popped up about the genesis of the project (whether it was mounted before or after Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD was released [or at least in post-production in Italy]), the New York shoot, and assignment of credit for its attributes. The two commentators poke some fun at the dialogue and direction, but not in an off-putting manner and it’s obvious they enjoy the film even after several nitpicking views.

Disc One’s other special features are limited to an introduction by McCulloch (who has developed an appreciation for a film of which he was once embarrassed), the US theatrical trailer, the Vipco Video trailer – with painful PAL speedup – in lieu of the export trailer (they are largely the same), two American TV spots, five amusing radio spots (“Zombie! You are what they eat!”), and the Italian title sequence. Arrowing up from the scene selection option on the main menu screen takes you to an Easter Egg menu with three additional extras. The first is labeled ZOMBI HOLOCAUST GERMAN TRAILER, but it is actually a sequence shot for but not included in the export or Italian versions of the film, but utilized in the US version DR. BUTCHER M.D. (this is then followed by the German trailer subtitled in English). The second Easter Egg extra is “Critics of the Living Dead” in which actor Ian McCulloch responds to an amusing internet review of the film, and the third is “Gino De Rossi’s Wall of Fame” in which the effects artist points out mounted photographs of actors and directors he has worked with, as well as production stills, framed reviews, other memorabilia.

Disc Two’s special features kick off with “Aliens, Cannibals, Zombies”, a 44 minute interview with actor Ian McColloch on his trio of Italian horror ventures (all of which ended up targeted for public prosecution during the Video Nasty debacle of the eighties), and the talk more than makes up for the exclusion from this release of his late nineties audio commentary track from the American releases. He talks about being recruited by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Tyburn horror film THE GHOUL, and his TV work (including the series SURVIVORS which brought him to the notice of the ZOMBI’s producers). He didn’t think highly of the script and felt out of his depth on location (he recalls Tisa Farrow telling him to “chill out” and that Richard Johnson found him to be a “cold fish”). He feels that the film was carried by its effects work (much of it insert work that he did not see it until the screening). Twenty-five minutes in, discussion shifts to ZOMBI HOLOCAUST (including working with Alexandra Delli Colli [NEW YORK RIPPER] and the Dell’Acqua family of stunt doubles as the zombies) and Luigi Cozzi’s CONTAMINATION (McCulloch’s hotel room was burgled during the Colombia shoot and he did not get on well with his female co-star).

Zombie Flesh Eaters – From Script to Screen” finds Sacchetti pointing out sequences in his screenplay (this short featurette does not make use of inserts, so interested viewers would be better off looking at Jay Slater’s piece on the script in the booklet that comes with the release). “From Romero to Rome” is an hour-long look at the genre from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD onwards (when zombies stopped being mere “walking furniture”). NOTLD producer Russ Streiner, writer Dardanno Sacchetti, directors Luigi Cozzi, Ruggero Deodato, Darren Ward, and Alex Chandron, James Moran, and critics Antonio Tentori, Alan Jones, and Shelagh Rowan-Legg make various cases for why ZOMBIE was not a rip-off of DAWN OF THE DEAD (Cozzi traces its inspiration to the comic TEX WILLER IN THE VALLEY OF DEATH and Sacchetti says it was shot as ISLAND OF THE LIVING DEAD and changed to ZOMBI 2 by producer Ugo Tucci after
DAWN OF THE DEAD came out in Italy as ZOMBI). The various participants make the case that the Italian zombie boom only went so far and that the variations in Fulci’s gothic trio (CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE BEYOND, and HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY) showed that the director was not interested in repeating himself. They round out the featurette by discussing the genre’s increasingly less satisfying entries (ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST, NIGHTMARE CITY, HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD, BURIAL GROUND, EROTIC NIGHTS OF THE LIVING DEAD, ZOMBI 3, ZOMBIE 4: AFTER DEATH).

Fabio Frizzi visited Glasgow for a Q&A segment included here as "Music for a Flesh-Feast" in which he shifts between English and translated Italian about his working methods, and his inspirations (he cites Mike Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells” when asked if he was influenced by Gobiln, who shared the same music publisher with Frizzi in the seventies). "The Meat Munching Movies of Gino De Rossi" visits the workshop of effects artist De Rossi, not to be confused with Giannetto de Rossi who did the prosthetic make-up and zombies. It was Gino who designed the head for ZOMBIE’s eye-splintering, the drill through the head illusion for
CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD (as well as the entrail vomiting “gag”), the knife-through-the-head-and-out-the-mouth illusion for HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, as well as the mechanical piranhas for James Cameron’s PIRANHA II: THE SPAWNING (they were replaced with stop-motion because the geers on the mechanical ones kept getting clogged with plankton). He also discusses his working relationships with Fulci, Umberto Lenzi, and Ovidio Assonitis. The aforementioned 40-page booklet features an appreciation by Thrower as well as a timeline of the film’s conception and shooting (offered up for consideration in the debate as to whether the film was mounted to cash-in on DAWN OF THE DEAD). Jay Slater provides scans of some pages from the English translation of the script (revealing some additional material – including the zombie rising from the harbor [which only survives as a publicity photo] – and an extension of the eye-splinter sequence). Also included is an interview with actress Olga Karlatos (conducted by Calum Waddell) in which the actress discusses the stages of her career (the discussion of ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS focuses on her make-up effects ordeals) and her life after she gave up acting. BBFC Senior Examiner Craig Lapper provides an interesting essay about ZOMBIE FLESH EATER’s censorship travails from its X-certificate theatrical release (including a cutting list, and a suggestion for the removal of additional frames for smoother cutting continuity) and its various reclassifications up until the 2005 Anchor Bay release (passed without cuts). The booklet closes out with a Lucio Fulci CV and a page of notes on the restoration.

ADDITION: Blue Underground - Region FREE - Blu-ray - October 11': By looking at the matched frame comparison captures what we are seeing is the evolution of digital home theater presentation. The Blue Underground may not be a pristinely sharp image but it is easily the best ever release for Fulci's iconic 'Zombie'. I expect that any of the minor softness is inherent in the production and no fault of the, essentially, single-layered 1080P transfer. It looks quite good in-motion, still fairly flat but most colors perk-up and become more vibrant - or at least more true. I don't see any manipulation ad there is some fine grain noticeable in the background. It is far from Blue Underground best looking release but as a replication of the original I trust this is as authentic as we are likely to get.

Audio is competent with some strength via a modestly separated DTS-HD 7.1 at 2071 kbps. Blue Underground are diligent in adding the Italian track - also in uncompressed and surround plus Dolby stereo options. The 7.1 seems to support the film very well - nothing overly dynamic but crisp enough to connote the improvement. A host of English (both for English and Italian tracks) and many foreign language subtitle options signifying the disc as Region FREE - playable on Blu-ray machines worldwide.

Blue Underground have really gone-to-town with the supplements in an obvious labor of love for the production. The feature disc sports an audio Commentary with star Ian McCulloch and Diabolik Magazine Editor Jason J. Slater. It is fairly relaxed and enjoyable - reminiscences and factoids fill the 1.5 hours. Sharing the first disc are theatrical trailers, TV and Radio Spots, a poster & stills Gallery plus you get the opetion of a brief intro by Guillermo del Toro.

Disc 2 is also a
Blu-ray with about 1-hour 40-minutes worth of interviews - all produced by RedShirt/Blue Underground and all in 1080P (with English subs where Italian language). We get "Zombie Wasteland" - chatting with stars Ian McCulloch, Richard Johnson & Al Cliver, and Actor/Stuntman Ottaviano Dell'Acqua for about 22-minutes with the backdrop of a genre convention, then "Flesh Eaters on Film" an interview with Co-Producer Fabrizio De Angelis for about 10-minutes, "Deadtime Stories" - talks with Co-Writers Elisa Briganti and (Uncredited) Dardano Sacchetti for shy of 15-minutes, "World of the Dead" hangs with cinematographer Sergio Salvati and Production & Costume Designer Walter Patriarca for more than 15-minutes, "Zombi Italiano" is an interview with Special Make-Up Effects Artists Gianetto De Rossi & Maurizio Trani and Special Effects Artist Gino De Rossi also for 15-minutes. There is more - "Notes on a Headstone" is an interview with Composer Fabio Frizzi for 7.5-minutes, "All in the Family" is Antonella Fulci's turn for 6-minutes and finally "Zombie Lover" has a spoiler warning and Guillermo del Toro extols one of his favorite films for just under 10-minutes. Whew.

Blue Underground continue to impress and Fulci fans won't want to miss out on this as both the best a/v available for the film and the most abundant and complete extras with the commentary and multitude of interviews. Strongly recommended for the genre fans!

***

ADDITION: Media Blasters (Aug -04) - Colors appear most vibrant in the new Media Blasters edition although skin tones tend to look a little orange and the image may be overly bright. Sharpness looks quite comparable to the Blue Underground addition - perhaps a notch below.  This addition, like the Blue Underground, offers English Dolby Digital 5.1, English Dolby Digital stereo surround, English Dolby Digital Mono, Italian Dolby Digital 5.1, Italian Dolby Digital stereo surround and Italian Dolby Digital Mono and removable Eng. subtitles. It is significantly stacked in the Extras dept. with a few more than the BU and the commentary.

The Anchor Bay and Italian Shock captures are in their native resolution and the BU is scaled down.

The old Anchor Bay has a pretty high amount of dirt, white speckles, digital artifacts and even a few blue dead pixels. The Blue Underground is much sharper and a very nice clean print, but we have doubts about BU's colours - Sadomania (which they offer replacement for) and
Contraband had some night scenes transferred as day, this "day for night" stuff seems also here in capture 5+6 - but which one is correct here, we have no idea. Contraband and Venom has a greenish tint which also is noticeable here. Also look at the stripes on the wall in capture 2: they are blue, yellow and pink! Again, we have really no idea which one is most accurate

The Blue Underground and Italian Shock are longer versions than the Anchor Bay, we haven't compared what the differences are, but it should be additional footage and different framing in a few scenes plus a possible different opening.

The Blue Underground is the best release right now, but we suggest to wait buying until the Media Blasters is released, we will add the DVD to this comparison as soon we have a copy.
