Zombie by Jeff Proctor
Mondo! Jeff Proctor's first stab at a Mondo poster highlights a scene of mind-zapping aqua carnage from Lucio Fulci's 1979 George Romero cash-in; variously known as Zombie, Zombi 2, Island of the Living Dead, Zombie Island and Woodoo. The UK release caught the hysterically literal title Zombie Flesh Eaters and ended up haunting the Video Nasties list. Repeated attempts to get the film a BBFC classification in the late 90s were hampered by obscenity laws - it took until 2005 for a full uncut home video version to be released in Britain.
