"ZOMBIE isn't a movie -- it's a rite of passage. Exploding from a psychological demon-void and onto a sun-drenched beach in Dimension X, this is Lucio Fulci's valentine to minimalism, mood, and gratuitous throat-ripping. An outbreak of zombies in New York City brings Tisa "Sister of Mia" Farrow to a tropical island, where her mad scientist father works feverishly to find a cure for the zombie rampage. But everyone knows that tropical islands in Italian horror movies can only lead to one thing. And it's not hugs. An exercise in both beautiful design and brutal nihilism, ZOMBIE appropriated George Romero's undead mythos and transformed it into a cultural game-changer for the horror genre. P.S. Beware of sharks."
