I actually ended up liking Zombi quite a bit, but I had to have already seen two or three Fulcis to be able to set myself appropriately, and I think I still had to reset once. But I ended up really digging it. It is another movie that would end up copiously clipped into my horror-scene montage if I was ever actually going to make it.Rock wrote:I didn't like The House by the Cemetery when I saw it a few years back (me! me! me! click my link!) as, like Crumbsroom says, it's more straightforward approach makes the stupid and nonsensical shit play much worse. But I'd like to revisit both that and Zombie (which I also didn't enjoy, although my reasons pertained more to its pacing) as I've warmed to Fulci over the years. Given that I even enjoyed Aenigma when I saw it a few months back, there's a good chance I've lost all critical perspective.
Best eyeball scene ever.
Also, now that I think of it, best zombie vs. shark scene ever.
