Troll 2 Director’s Banned Movie Zombie Creeping Flesh Decomposes On Blu-ray

The latest essential addition to your horror home video collection is the 1980 Italian classic Zombie Creeping Flesh, which was released on Blu-ray today in the UK courtesy of 88 Films.

Also released under the titles Virus and Hell of the Living Dead, the film was co-directed by both The Other Hell’s Bruno Mattei, and Claudio Fragasso, who was also responsible for the best worst movie ever, Troll 2. It starred Margit Evelyn Newton, Franco Garofalo, Selan Karay, and José Gras, with Dario Argento’s legendary band Goblin creating the soundtrack. You’re probably familiar with their music because of that crazy song “The Gonk”, which they made for George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead.

Originally banned on VHS in the UK, the Blu-ray release of Zombie Creeping Flesh is fully uncensored and includes a wealth of extras, including an interview with Fragasso which was recorded this year. It’s available now on Amazon and 88 Films’ official site.

Zombie Creeping Flesh – The Italian Collection 35
Legendary schlock-master Bruno Mattei (RATS: NIGHTS OF TERROR) really outdid himself with 1980’s classic video nasty bile-fest ZOMBIE CREEPING FLESH. Banned by the British authorities back in the early days of VHS, thanks to its scenes of innards-chewing, eye-popping and throat-ripping excess, ZOMBIE CREEPING FLESH is a strangely moral eco-horror film that warns against the very real terrors of nuclear pollution and chemical fallout as residents in Papua, New Guinea are turned into flesh-hungry undead denizens! Directed with the splatter-enthusiastic aplomb that one would expect from Mattei – one of the underrated auteurs of golden age Italian gore – and penned by the iconic Z-movie maverick Claudio Fragrasso (ZOMBI 3/ TROLL 2), it is tough to deny that ZOMBIE CREEPING FLESH is every bit as eerily entertaining as it was almost 40 years ago!

Now presented uncut and uncensored, in an aesthetic presentation that will sizzle your senses, ZOMBIE CREEPING FLESH is back to chew its way into your living room – courtesy of 88 Films and its ever-impressive Italian Collection!
