I am one lucky dude. Out of the roughly three-and-a-half billion women on the planet, I somehow managed to find the ONE with whom I could be compatible. The points I could list to illustrate this fact are nigh endless, but only one is germane to this site and this article in particular: my girl doesn’t do chick flicks and she adores Horror as much as I do. Yes, she’s as big a geek as I am, which statistically shouldn’t even be possible. (She’s also a total babe, which statistically REALLY shouldn’t be possible.) There are only a precious few Horror flicks that I’ve seen and she hasn’t. Lucio Fulci’s ZOMBIE (aka ZOMBI, aka ZOMBIE 2, aka ZOMBI 2; the story behind how this classic film got so many different titles is a subject worthy of a separate article. Come to think of it, haven’t I written about it before?) is one of them. My gal’s a Horror geek, but her tolerance for gore is lower than mine. She couldn’t handle ZOMBIE, I suspect.
The writer of this linked-to article (see source link below) suggests there are five Horror films no parents should ever allow their child to watch. It’s a good list, but far from complete. I would suggest adding ZOMBIE to that list. If even a fully grown Horror junkie like my lovely better half couldn’t handle it, it is certain to give little junior nightmares.
