    Dèmoni 2 (Demons 2) is a 1986 Italian horror film directed by Lamberto Bava and co-written and produced by Dario Argento. It is a sequel to Bava’s 1985 film Dèmoni and stars David Edwin Knight, Nancy Brilli, Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni, as well as Argento’s youngest daughter Asia Argento in her debut film performance at age ten. In this sequel, Bava opted to use British New Wave bands such as the Smiths, the Cult, Dead Can Dance, and the Art of Noise on the soundtrack as opposed to heavy metal bands in the original Dèmoni.

    zombi2-zombie

    Zombi 2 (also known as Zombie, Island of the Living Dead, Zombie Island, Zombie Flesh Eaters and Woodoo) is a 1979 zombie horror film directed by Lucio Fulci. It is the best-known of Fulci’s films.  It made Fulci a horror icon. Despite the fact that the title alludes to the film being a sequel to Zombi (the Italian title of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead), the films are unrelated. When the film was released in 1979, it was scorned for its extremely bloody content notably by the at the time Conservative British Parliament.

     Strangers looking for a woman’s father arrive at a tropical island where a doctor desperately searches for the cause and cure of a recent epidemic of the undead.

    Memorable scenes :

    zombie_shark2

    The film became infamous for two scenes in particular, aided by special effects. One features a zombie (Ramon Bravo) fighting an actual tiger shark underwater. The actor scheduled to fight the shark was unable to perform the day the sequence was to be shot, so the shark’s trainer was used instead.

    zombie_shark1

    The other infamous scene is where a character has her eye gouged out on a splintered piece of wood very slowly and painfully. This scene in particular was edited from many previous releases, but is intact on all three current DVD versions.

    zombi2-eye-gouge

    The film is also remembered among fans for its creepy, synthesized opening theme, composed by Fabio Frizzi.

    Reception in Europe:

    Zombi 2′s incredible success in Europe re-ignited Fulci’s sagging career and reinvented the director as a horror maven. Fulci would go on to direct several more horror films, and Zombi 2 introduced several of his trademarks: zombies, hyper-realistic gore and blood, and the infamous “eyeball gag” (a character is impaled or otherwise stabbed through the eyeball). Contrary to what some web sites have said about Zombi 2 being written before Dawn of the Dead this is not true. In fact at least some of the dialogue is a variation of a line written for Dawn of the Dead.

    zombie DVDDespite the massive popularity of the film, Zombi 2 was banned in several countries, including Great Britain, due to the massive gore content. It was released by Vipco but with a lot of violence edited out. It was finally released uncut in 2005. Lead actor Ian McCulloch, who is British, never actually had the opportunity to watch the full film until he recorded a commentary for the Roan Group’s laserdisc release of Zombi 2 in 1998, and was shocked at the gore level.

    Zombi 2′s massive European box office take also paved the way for three more sequels, which, like their predecessor, have no relation to any of the other films in the series — they all have self-contained plots. While the Zombi series proved to be incredibly lucrative, Zombi 2 is by far the most recognizable of the European zombie films.

    The film was written before Dawn of the Dead was released in Italy, as an action/adventure thriller with no link to George A. Romero’s films. The opening and closing scenes (which take place in New York) were added to the script later when the producers wanted to cash-in on the success of Dawn.

    The infamous shark vs. zombie scene was filmed in a large salt water tank and the shark was fed horse meat and sedatives before filming.

    Reception in United States:

    Zombi 2 was released merely as Zombie in America and was considered a stand-alone film with no connection to Romero’s zombie canon. The theatrical trailers for Zombie provided the memorable tagline of “We Are Going to Eat You!” and showcased some of the make-up effects, but did nothing to indicate the plot of the picture (although the audience was indeed warned about the graphic content of the film: a humorous crawl at the end of the preview promises “barf bags” to whoever requested them upon viewing the film).

    The Return of the Living Dead is an American zombie comedy horror film that was released in 1985 and was followed by several sequels. The film was written and directed by Dan O’Bannon and starred Clu Gulager, James Karen, Don Calfa, Thom Mathews, Beverly Randolph and Linnea Quigley. The film tells the story of how a man and a group of teenage punks deal with the accidental release of a horde of brain hungry zombies onto an unsuspecting town.

    The film is also known for its soundtrack, which features several noted deathrock and punk rock bands of the era.

    Tagline:  They’re Back From The Grave and Ready To Party!

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wylpeAXYcBQ]

     

    Production:

    The film has its roots in a novel by John Russo also called Return of the Living Dead. When Russo and George A. Romero parted ways after their 1968 film Night of the Living Dead, Russo retained the rights to any titles featuring Living Dead while Romero was free to create his own series of sequels, beginning with Dawn of the Dead. Russo and producer Tom Fox planned to bring Return of the Living Dead to the screen in 3D and directed by Tobe Hooper. Dan O’Bannon was brought in to give the script a polish and after Hooper backed out to make Lifeforce (also from a script by Dan O’Bannon), O’Bannon was offered the director’s seat. He accepted on the condition he could rewrite the film radically so as to differentiate it from Romero’s films. Russo retains a story writer credit on the film for developing the project, but the final film bears little to no resemblance to his original novel. He later wrote a novelization of the film which was fairly faithful to the shooting script, though without the character names as in the final film and the addition of a KGB sublot as an explanation for the plot. (Russo would, eventually, make his own ‘canon’ series with a 1999 revised edition of Night of the Living Dead, subtitled the 30th Anniversary Edition, and its sequel, Children of the Living Dead.)

    O’Bannon’s script also differed from the Romero series in that it is markedly more comedy based than Romero’s films, employing “splatstick” style morbid humor and eccentric dialogue. The films also boasted significant nudity, in marked contrast to Romero’s work. Russo and O’Bannon were only directly involved with the first film in the series, the rest of the films, to varying degrees, stick to their outline and “rules” established in the first film.

    Although the movie is set in Louisville, Kentucky, it was filmed in California. The Louisville police uniforms and patrol cars were all period correct which means the studio had to obtain permission from the Louisville city government to use the Louisville police department emblem. Neither the Louisville police nor the city of Louisville received any acknowledgement in the end credits.

    The Tarman is performed by puppeteer Allan Trautman, who is best known for his work with Jim Henson and The Muppets.

    The Zombies:

    The zombies in this movie differ from those in Night of the Living Dead. Return’s interpretation of zombies has influenced cultural interpretations of zombies, particularly with regard to their hunger for brains and their constant vocalization of this hunger.

    • They are fast and can run.
    • They are almost as intelligent and somewhat stronger then they were in their previous life, and they can also speak sometimes.
    • Instead of hunting humans for their flesh, they hunt for the humans’ brains, stating that only their consumption eases the pain of being dead.
    • It appears that injuries to their brains do not have any effect and the only way to fully destroy them is to cremate their bodies, although the ensuing smoke spreads the contagious gas. However, in the sequel, it is revealed the other way to destroy the zombies without spreading the gas is by electrical charge.

    White Zombie (1932) is an American horror film, first released on August 4, 1932. It was the first film to feature zombies.

    Tagline: The Dead Walk Among Us!

    15 Bela Lugosi Films!

    Plot: Madeleine (Madge Bellamy) arrives at midnight to witness a mysterious burial before coming face to face with the satanic looking Murder Legendre (Lugosi with goatee and searing eyes) a hypnotist and voodoo master who has been supplying the local mills with an army of zombie laborers. Madeleine’s nightmare is just beginning. Having landed in a world of almost perpetual night where hollow-eyed zombies lumber through the sugar mill and the ghostly town is eerily bereft of living souls she becomes the object of desire for Legendre whose plan to possess her involves her initiation to the world of the undead.

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQV7wOg3hYQ]

    The film was produced independently by minor silent film makers Edward Halperin and Victor Halperin, from a script by Garnett Weston. Victor Halperin directed, and the film was distributed by United Artists.

    Sherman S. Krellberg financed most of the production of the film through his Amusement Securities Corporation, using the film rights as collateral. When the Halperins were unable to repay the loan in a timely manner, Krellberg took over the rights and, after its initial run was finished, periodically reissued the film through minor distributors, the last time being in 1972.

     

    White Zombie

    White Zombie

    White Zombie

    is among the most-renowned horror films of the early sound era. Its legacy includes a namesake rock band, an extensive published critical analysis by Gary Don Rhodes, many VHS and DVD versions owing to its public-domain status, and considerable debate among film historians regarding its degree of virtue.

    White-zombie

    11 X 17 Movie Poster!

    Many factors contribute to White Zombie’s enduring cult film status:

    • It is the first film dealing with zombies, a popular horror film subject of the last forty years.
    • It was independently-produced and not a product of a major studio like Universal, which made most of the best-known early horror films.
    • The director quit midway in filming and Lugosi got the chance to direct some scenes of the film. This according to his son as he commented in the documentary 100 Years of Horror. Lugosi had wished he could have done much more.
    • Its use of sophisticated camera, lighting, and sound techniques was pioneering for the genre.
    • It features a full musical score, albeit composed of secondary source material; contemporary horrors Dracula and Frankenstein did not.
    • Its elaborate sets, rented from Universal, and striking painted background images belie its independent status and help make it more comparable to a studio film than subsequent independent horror films would be.
    • It stars Béla Lugosi in one of his top performances, in a unique and visually-striking makeup.
    • Jack Pierce, Universal’s resident makeup genius who created the landmark face designs for the Frankenstein Monster, the Mummy, and later the Wolf Man, was the makeup artist for the film.
    • It marks the first of many independent-film choices for Lugosi following his success in Universal’s Dracula, a tendency that is generally cited for diminishing his status in the industry and is a popular Lugosi-discussion topic.
    • The quality of its performances is the subject of much debate, with some horror-film historians blaming the romantic leads in part for their overall ambivalence toward the film, but others crediting the disparate acting styles as contributing to the film’s strange, dream-like quality.
    • Unlike most other popular horror films, White Zombie’s cast is made up almost entirely of actors who today are not popularly-known for other performances; this feature helps to spotlight Lugosi, the most notable exception, and add to the film’s other-worldliness.
    • It contains a multitude of singularly-memorable moments, including:
      • A frightful scene showing zombies working in the sugar mill owned by Lugosi’s character.
      • The foot-to-head introductory pan of the zombie played by Frederick Peters, one of the genre’s scariest-looking characters.
      • The famous “flub” of horror-favorite Brandon Hurst holding his nose as he’s being thrown to a watery death.
      • Actor-musician Clarence Muse’s description of zombies, a rare instance in early films, especially horror films, in which an African-American was provided an opportunity to deliver lines in a non-stereotypical manner.
      • The early close-up of Lugosi’s eyes that travels across a wide shot and settles on the head of the actor.
