Lucio Fulci's 'Zombie' Announced for Blu-Ray in October   

July 6, 2011 It hits Blu-Ray October 25! Remastered from the original negative!

In Italy, it was considered the ‘unofficial sequel’ to Dawn of the Dead. In England, it was known as
Zombie Flesheaters and banned as obscene. In America, it was called "Zombie" and advertised with the depraved tag line "WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU!"

Tisa Farrow (Anthropophagus), Ian McCulloch (Contamination), Al Cliver (The Beyond), and Richard Johnson (The Haunting) star in this worldwide splatter sensation directed by ‘Maestro Of Gore’ Lucio Fulci (City of the Living Dead) that remains one of the most eye-skewering, skin-ripping, gore-gushingly graphic horror hits of all time!

From the press release:

Blue Underground is proud to present Zombie in a new 2K High Definition transfer from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative. Each flesh-eating frame has been lovingly restored to skull-rotting perfection under the supervision of Cinematographer Sergio Salvati (The Beyond). Now fully-loaded with hours of brand new Extras, this is the Ultimate Edition of Zombie!
