Angry Robot


aka Zombi 2, aka Island of the Flesh Eaters. Great opening three shots, but then a lapse into a first act of languid, awkward 70s pacing. However the last hour or so is an unrelenting gorefest that puts most horror movies to shame. It’s all about the zombies – here’s hoping that’s the motto of some company I go on to found at a later date – and these ‘zombis’ are fabulous, especially the really old ones who have insects crawling around in their eye sockets. Mmmm! Plenty of explosively violent deaths, of course, and nary an attempted scientific explanation.
