Excerpt: After reading all the good comments I decided to fork out for this as my favourite zombie movie of all time. Ok I know it's 1979 but I was not impressed with he grain quality especially in the first 5 mins of the film where the boat is in he New York river floating to the harbour, boy the grain is really visible didn't exspect it to be so bad, but it gets better as the film progresses. I suppose compared to the VHS and DVD its ok but not quiet what I expected.
Excerpt: I love the horror genre and this film is held in high regards by a lot of people, so it was partly a no brainer to add this to my collection, although i should point out i had seen this film many moons ago (11-12 years) and disliked it. Anyhow between then and now my taste has changed a lot and from a lot more indepth reading about the movie i decided to give it a go as on paper this edition looks great.
Excerpt: I was just a tad underwhelmed with the picture. I'm convinced it's the best it can/will look, but I wasn't blown away. The package, altogether, is incredible. The film is only the beginning! The user kastas above mentioned that he believes both Zombie/Zombi 2 and Dawn of the Dead to be filmed in 16mm. Neither film was, however.
Excerpt: This is one of my favourite zombie films. I like how old rotten the zombies look. The gore effects was pretty good for it`s time. I think the music by another favourite composer of mine Fabio Frizzi is pretty good. I like the main theme. Picture quality: This looks very much improved compared to my old Anchor Bay DVD from 98. The colours, details, blood & gore looks much better now due to it being restored in 2K. There is 1 problem, though. The film grain.
Excerpt: I liked the bluray.com review. Zombie is an obvious rip off of Dawn Of The Dead. While "Dawn" receives most of the praise (being first and, some say, being a more intelligent film), I personally prefer Zombie over Dawn. "Dawn" tends to drag with too much talk parts in between the real action scenes. Zombie is a more straight forward film and drags much less than "Dawn". The acting on both films is pretty shakey, but Zombie has some decent performances.
Excerpt: For people who watch splatter cinema “Zombie” is required viewing. If you’re a horror-head or a Fulci-freak and haven’t seen “Zombie” it’s on your list, and no review I or anyone else writes will dissuade you from seeing it. In fact, showing extreme disdain for it would probably pique your interest further. That being the case, I only caution that you reign in expectations before watching this one. Upon first seeing “Zombie” I hated it.
Excerpt: This is the best zombie horror/splatter movie ever made, and it will be very tough to compete with a GREAT cult classic like zombie.It is simply the best of all zombie movies there is and thats a fact. The video quality and sound are just GREAT, especially the picture, its so clean to watch, colourful and detailed. I will give it 5 considering its a cult movie from 1979 and looks so great.
Excerpt: I have loved this movie for years and years. I have owned the VHS with a terrible, full-screen, cropped, blurry transfer. Then, in 2002, Anchor Bay released their version on DVD in WideScreen BUT the transfer was smeary and ghosty. Then, in 2004, Blue Underground released an excellent DVD with remastered picture and looked amazing. Now, BU has released this FANTASTIC Blu-ray of the cult favorite. This is THE BEST 'ZOMBIE' has EVER looked.
