When March rolls around and things are not warming up quickly enough, sometimes you just need to get away on a spring break! But what if you're on a limited budget? Then you might end up on a zombie-infested island like we did! Realistically, this movie has nothing to do with spring break, we know. Just humor us, please.
A seemingly abandoned boat turns up in the New York City harbor, linking the owner to the mysterious island of Matool in the Caribbean. When the boat's owner is discovered to have gone missing, his daughter and a reporter make it their mission to locate Matool in an attempt to unravel the mystery behind his disappearance.
That all probably sounds pretty tame, right? No big deal. Until zombies show up and start biting off chunks of flesh and ripping out throats with their teeth. Of course, there are plenty of other moments of zombies chowing down on human flesh, along with infamous scenes involving a rather large splinter penetrating an eyeball, Spanish conquistadores rising from their graves, and an underwater zombie versus a shark!
Lucio Fulci's reputation as the "Godfather of Gore" truly begins here, with the splatter classic, Zombie (1979)!
