To mark the forthcoming release of Zombie Flesh Eaters, which has been fully restored from the original camera negatives for Blu-ray, DVD and Steelbook, on Monday December 3rd, we’ve been given 3 copies of the limited edition Steelbook edition to give away.
Hailing from the now infamous “Video Nasty” era of horror films, Zombie Flesh Eaters (directed by Lucio Fulci) became an unstoppable cult hit upon its release in 1979. The film divided opinion across the globe and came up against opposition in many territories for the sheer amount of bloody content and its high gore-factor.
The original cut of Zombie Flesh Eaters was banned in the UK upon release, and the film that appeared in cinemas was an edited version with a full 2 minutes of brutality stripped out to get past the classification board. These new high definition restored editions contain the full unedited film, as Fulci made them to be seen.
Both Zombie Flesh Eaters’ star Ian McCulloch, and the man behind the amazing restoration, James White, will be available for interviews, please contact Will Taylor at Noble PR for opportunities, contact details are at the bottom of this release.
From the sleazy video nasty vaults comes a movie so stained with controversy and moral indignation that the very mention of its name sends shudders down the spines of the weak stomached and censorious – Zombie Flesh Eaters. A gut-munching, shark wrestling, eye-gouging orgy of topless skin divers, mud-caked undead terror and Italian splatter from the dark imagination of horror genius Lucio Fulci (The Beyond, City of The Living Dead).
An abandoned boat in New York Harbour unleashes a deadly flesh crazed Zombie cargo… A Young American woman and a journalist investigate a tropical island where a deadly disease is making the dead walk… Soon, thoughts of getting to the bottom of the murderous curse will be forgotten, as Fulci’s walking corpses overwhelm the living and reports come in that the Big Apple is swarming with the living dead…
Still, after more than thirty years, Zombie Flesh Eaters still has the power to shock and offend the unwilling… Check out this classic ‘sadist video’ and revel in a wonderfully offensive movie that once helped usher in a moral panic!
