Lucio Fulci films are definitely an acquired taste, but great fun in you're a fan. Zombie is a perfect introduction to the man and his films, from its outrageous gore effects, driving Fabio Frizzi score, shark vs zombie scene - it's got it all.
The crowd tonight had a great time (even if one was expecting a 40s-era B&W zombie classic - oops! - he only averted his eyes during the famous eye-gouging scene...), and it was fun watching Fulci on the big screen for the first time.
On Deck: The dawn of the contemporary zombie film - the Cannes cut of George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead.
