Netflix has it. Or are you looking for a legit copy to own?

This is one of my favorite zombie films and it is terrible that it is so overlooked by people. I find the whole cause behind the zombification to be very original.

Most definitely, this was a refreshing take on the zombie mythos. I really enjoyed it from beginning to end, which is more than I can say for most zombie movies which I seem to just enjoy bits scattered throughout the movie.

Zombi 2 is another great one.

this is a very good movie in my opinion some cool gore effects, although it is very cheesy lol, i got my copy at a local store called Newbury Comics they have tons of great horror movies that aren't available anywhere else, check out the website you may be able to order from them

This film is dripping with atmosphere . It pulls you in from the opening in an antique shop in London .

The credit sequence is haunting and sets the unnerving tone for the film perfectly .

Then it becomes a bit too obvious with it's montage of big city pollutants being spewed into the atmosphere as our hero rides through London on his way to the countryside , around Manchester i think . I see this as foreshadowing and a bit of social commentary . It's a terrific and effective time capsule of the early 70s denizens of that great city .


Once he gets to the countryside ( he hitches a ride with a woman who backed up into his motorbike at a petrol station ) , the story really starts to take shape .

The beautiful English countryside has never looked so gorgeous , haunting , imposing , mysterious and unsettling . Props to the cinematographer , he captured the landscape effectively and utilized the environment in expert fashion .

Forget Masterpiece Theater or those kiddie films that show the Midlands as some welcoming playland of nature , this parcel of land is terrifying , a constant sense of dread hangs over the proceedings , the fear and apprehension is palpable . Beautiful but deadly ?

The set design is also highly effective , wait until you see the sequence in the mausoleum , you know Fulci took numerous cues from this film . The finale in the hospital , exciting and brutal as all hell , another sequence Fulci lifted .

Everything about this classic of the zom genre works , from the makeup fx to the gore , to the music to the acting and aforementioned cinematography .

It's genuinely frightening with an intense sense of nihilism .


It comes highly recommended , my highest recommendation , if you like zom films or horror in general this is a must see .

Can't wait for the blu ray , should look fantastic

100% co-signed!

I'm also eagerly awaiting the blu-ray, though Blue Underground has been sort of hit and miss with their HD content so far.
