Zombie

(1979) ***1/2

After an interminably slow start, this Italian classic rises from the dead to become a riproaring zombiefest complete with shark, gratuitous boobshots, and that iconic eyeball scene.

Very bold choice you keep this up and you'll lose your biddy status.

That is a nasty movie! I agree that it drags at points but I love it and still use it as the measuring stick for revolting, decayed zombies climbing out of the ground.

Agreed! This is a winner. And pretty bold for someone supposedly so squeamish...

Last year I fell asleep twice trying to get through the span between the sailboat in NYC to the shark scene. You make it that far and you're golden.

i gotta say, i admire AC's unisex appreciation of nudity in film.

that reminds me - jsp and i just watched Lionheart a few weeks ago. if you're looking to do a jean-claude-van-damme's-ass-a-thon, that one has to go on the list.

Ooh! I'm going to use "ass-a-thon" in my next review!

Go on with your bad self, AC! Look at you going for the gore!

AC said...

don't wanna lose my biddy status! truthfully, the gore was mostly fakey enough to not bother me.

fitty, i have to have unisex appreciation, i'm not aware of many horror films with quality male nudity.

i love the idea of a jcvd ass-a-thon, it's genius!
