Night of the Zombies

Night of the Zombies ★★★★

Hell of the Living Dead/Zombie Creeping Flesh/Virus/Zombie Inferno helps prove my thesis that, overall, the entertainment level of a zombie movie directly corresponds with how many titles it has.

And that movies with a Goblin score are inherently better, even if it's stolen. (Especially if it's stolen?)

My favorite thing about this movie is how twice (twice!) people mistake flesh eating zombies for drunk people.

Like many others have noted, the stock footage and racism are obvious and extremely glaring faults which this movie has, but when it focuses on its gory, ridiculous zombie action, it manages to be quite entertaining, for those who like that kind of thing. It is a better overall film than the other Mattei flick that I've seen, Rats, but it also lacks Rats' main appeal, the best twist ending of all time. This one's just a pretty standard '80s zombie movie. But it's still good. The apex of cheesy Italian zombie fare for me is probably still Burial Ground, but this is the kind of shit of which I'd like to see much more.
