Zombie Holocaust is an entertaining diversion. If you regularly comb the drecks of Italian horror garbage, you've seen much worse. This is a spliced-together film, like Mattei's Hell of The Living Dead, only this one cobbles two dumb gory b-movies together. There's a heavy dip in the fondue pot in store for this stink-ridden pile of sleazy excrement, and by that I mean I like it. Not only does this s hit sizzle but its got recognizable faces in it: Ian McCulloch from Zombie; Alexandra Delli Colli from The New York Ripper; Donald O'Brien from Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals, and a black guy who was in Zombie. I'm not racist, I just don't remember his name.
Like I said, there's two movies here (at least!)-- one involving a psychotic doctor and the other being a cannibal/zombie film. So you'd think there would be a lot going on here. But there isn't. It's just an onslaught of cheap gore scenes. One scene has Ian McCulloch defending himself with an outboard motor to an attacking zombie's face. HIS FACE. And if that ain't enough, Delli Colli has the camera pointed at her bush for the last fifteen minutes of the movie. Based on that alone, you should be scrambling to get to the video store. But seriously, there's dozens more treats in this movie including disembowelings, throat gashings, and skull-sawing autopsies.
