ISLAND OF THE LIVING DEAD

Bruno Mattei, Italy, 2007, Severin Films

“No pretention, no *wink wink* irony at the viewer, no throwback grindhouse crap -- it's just a simple, fun horror film that delivers the goods from the start, something I've unfortunately grown accustomed to not seeing anymore.” -- “drauch58”, Letterboxd

After the “golden age of Italian exploitation” concluded at the end of the ‘80s -- no one told goremeister Bruno Mattei (HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD, RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR) to stop making ‘80s Italian exploitation movies! In the 2000s, Mattei produced nearly a dozen exploitationers with the same verve and whackadoo style that were hallmarks of his work in the classic period. This shit is a blast, y’all.

When a boneheaded group of treasure hunters are shipwrecked near a deserted island, they’ll instead discover an undead nightmare of flesh-chomping, skull blasting, absurd plotting, perplexing flamenco and old-school levels of graphic zombie carnage. Screenplay by the writer of Fulci’s A CAT IN THE BRAIN!
