Fulci’s classic film ZOMBIE aka Zombi 2 looks to eat up audiences one more time!

Evil Episodes is primarily for covering TV-based horror as well as horror-related web content and video games and horror comics thrown in as well, but I’ve said before, being a fan of the horror genre as a whole, I will reserve the right to cover theatrical movies when I feel like it….

Fulci’s ZOMBIE is a movie that I have had a long history with.  The first time I see it was on VHS rented from the video store.  Trying to watch it at 3am with my friend Shawn. This was before the internet so all we really had to go by was what the description on the box art said.  Up to that point we both kind of felt “zombie” was just too generic of a title so we would pass on it routinely on our trips to the video store.  Finally we decided to give it a shot and were blown away, big time.

The next big memory of  seeing it was a handful of years ago on the big screen at the TRASH FILM ORGY.  Seeing it with a crowd that had also probably seen it a bunch of times also was quite an experience. The crowd was was wild and the event organizers put on a live stage show of the infamous Zombie vs. Shark scene.  Something you had to see to believe!

Now with ZOMBIE’s blu ray release on the near horizon, the film is getting a 2-night theatrical release in select cities across the country.  Hopefully if it isn’t screening in your city, you are in close driving distance and will be able to witness the new HD print and sound on the big screen.  Here is a the re-release trailer as well as a listing of screenings:
