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.

Review

...dual-layered with a high bitrate, and the visuals look quite pleasing in advance of the SD with brighter image, better separated colors and a solid notch up in detail. Grain textures are wonderfully film-like for those who appreciate them... Easy to see the Blu-ray is the way to go with getting the best presentation in your home theater. For Zombie-flic fans this is stacked with the apocalyptic undead - quite the bombastic gorefest. I thought it was a better-than-average and an enjoyable piece of the genre. Often is replaces, but provides a derivation from, Romero's Dawn Of The Dead, while hinting at humor. Sure - recommended! - 4/5
