‘Plot’: When a terrorist’s body, infected with a stolen chemical, is recovered by the US military, the corpse is cremated, unintentionally releasing the virus/bacteria into the atmosphere over a small island. Soon the infected populace mutate into flesh-hungry zombies, and a trio of soldiers on leave must team up with a group of tourists and board themselves up in an abandoned hotel as they try to fend off the agile and aggressive living dead. (from IMDb.com)
Alex: Important factoid

Erin: What are some of Mattei’s other credits?
Alex: Huzzah KNOWLEDGE
Alex: I don’t know any off the top of my head
Alex: perhaps City of the living dead?
Ronnie: I believe everything he touches turns to poo
Alex: I know he is like a poor mans Fulci
Erin: they reanimated the corpse of Yul Brynner
Alex: and his films, at best, fall under the so bad it’s enjoyable category
Alex: awww Yul Brynner

Erin: Oh crap I can see the bottom of the head
Alex: zombie on the loose
Erin: Like where someone had their hand in the head puppet
Ronnie: is the music playing at the wrong speed??
Alex: this is synth magic
Erin: It’s kinda dragging
Erin: Definitely not 70s zombie rock
Ronnie: its like a cross between 80’s synth-pop and Phantom of the Opera
Alex: we need some Fabio Frizzi synth or Goblin up in this bitch
Alex: Maybe Tangerine Dream
Erin: it’s like they have synthesized pipe organs that crows fell into and died
Ronnie: wait, they had elevators back in them days???
Erin: so, is this a real sequel?
Alex: well this film has been compared to Hitchcock’s The Birds as an equal masterpiece
Ronnie: It’s another unofficial sequel

Ronnie: Dunno… probably not 🙁
Alex: Zombi 2 was a sequel to like Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, unofficially
Alex: Italians just throw numbers on stuff
Alex: and make pasta
Ronnie: all those shootings and no blood? Not even a squib??

Erin: any proper secret lab wouldn’t be on a resort island
Alex: …or would it?
Erin: the death one compound is far more dangerous than you imagined Alex
Erin: sweeeeeet mullet on the female

Erin: that’s a different hallway than the one he went in on
Alex: totally different
Alex: he is going to chop off that hand!
Alex: gore! yippee
Erin: the glass cut him to spread the virus that only lives 30 seconds in air
Alex: I just thought the same thing
