• Full Specs And Cover Art For Blue Underground's Zombie Blu-ray Due 10/25/2011





    From Blue Underground's press release:

    THE DEAD ARE AMONG US!

    In Italy, it was considered the ‘unofficial sequel’ to DAWN OF THE DEAD. In England, it was known as ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS and banned as obscene. In America, it was called ZOMBIE and advertised with the depraved tag line "WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU!" Tisa Farrow (THE GRIM REAPER), Ian McCulloch (CONTAMINATION), Al Cliver (CANNIBALS), and Richard Johnson (THE HAUNTING) star in this worldwide splatter sensation directed by ‘Maestro Of Gore’ Lucio Fulci (CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY) that remains one of the most eye-skewering, skin-ripping, gore-gushingly graphic horror hits of all time!


    Blue Underground is proud to present ZOMBIE in a new 2K High Definition transfer from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative. Each flesh-eating frame has been lovingly restored to skull-rotting perfection under the supervision of Cinematographer Sergio Salvati (THE BEYOND).

      I look forward to watch this in HD. I have only watched this on the old Anchor Bay DVD from 98.

      When is this coming out? I don't own a DVD of it, so this is a great time to pick it up.

      It's all about perspective, Todd. You're a foreigner to 96% of the world. So, 96% of the world (well, and me, and probably everyone that knows you) thinks you suck.
