Zombi 2 (animated gif)

Classic lurching zombie attack from Lucio Fulchi’s cult classic ‘Zombie 2‘ (1979), also known as ‘Zombie Flesh Eaters

The zombies in Fulchi’s film are rotten and shambling carcasses that stalk the island of Matool – no sprinting zombies foaming at the mouth here, it is rigor mortis and stiffness all the way.

This is probably the movie (as well as Dawn of the Dead [1978]) that turned me on to the zombie movie genre. I was bitten, with no turning back.
