Zombie 1979 (Zombi 2)
In 1978, George A. Romero released to the world the classic and original zombie film called Dawn Of The Dead and was called Zombi in Italy. By 1979 it had grown in popularity and rose to become a great hit in the film industry, so much so that Italian filmmaker Lucio Fulci made his own version of a zombie epic, which he then marketed as an unofficial sequel to the original Dawn Of The Dead Film and dubbed it Zombi 2 in Italy. It was later on in 1980 that it was released in the United States but under Zombie, which then became its own movie and a classic horror in its own rights.
A confusing history has emerged from the practice of retitling films for release in different countries, in which a given film may have a different title in each country in which it is released. In Britain, these films were released as the Zombie Flesh Eaters series. In North America, these same films became known as the Zombie series. Upon its release in the United Kingdom on 2 January 1980, the British Board of Film Classification required a total of one minute and forty-six seconds of material to be cut in order to obtain an X rating; its most recent home release on 1 August 2005 passed for an 18 rating with no cuts required.
However, the 1980 release found itself classified as a "video nasty", having been considered a breach of the Obscene Publications Act. The distributer decided to release a "Strong Uncut Version" on video, which caused it to be placed on the DPP's list of "Video Nasties". It was later released in it's cut form in the early 90's. The video's sleave notes were misleading and described the film as uncut. It was re-submitted in 1999, and an "Extreme version" was passed, with only minimal cuts to the eye gouge scene, and the Zombie Feast Scene.
Apparently, the BBFC didn't have a problem passing the movie uncut, but as it was still classed as prosecuted for obscenity, they couldn't by law. In 2005 it was finally passed uncut, and released as a box set with a few other of the Video Nasties.
The film developed a massive cult following after its release on home video, although a series of public domain releases featured a muddy full screen transfer of the film that angered hardcore fans. In the late 1990s, the film was released on DVD and laserdisc by Anchor Bay and The Roan Group respectively. Both versions used a widescreen print, to the delight of fans. But more complaints were made about the transfer, which was still dark and muddy of the film's original VHS release. The DVD/Laserdisc version also omitted several minutes of nudity from the film while leaving the film's graphic violence intact.
