In Italy, it was considered the 'unofficial sequel' to DAWN OF THE DEAD. In England, it was known as ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS and banned as obscene. In America, it was called ZOMBIE and advertised with the depraved tag line ''WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU!''; Tisa Farrow (THE GRIM REAPER), Ian McCulloch (CONTAMINATION), Al Cliver (CANNIBALS), and Richard Johnson (THE HAUNTING) star in this worldwide splatter sensation directed by 'Maestro Of Gore' Lucio Fulci (CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY) that remains one of the most eye-skewering, skin-ripping, gore-gushingly graphic horror hits of all time!

Just in time for its 40th Anniversary, Blue Underground is proud to present ZOMBIE in a brand-new 4K Restoration from the original uncut and uncensored camera negative. This is ZOMBIE like you've truly never seen it before, bursting at the seams with hours of new and archival Extras!

    Severin Films Presents ANTHROPOPHAGOUS - A D'Amato Nasty, Uncut on Blu-ray for the First Time Ever in America!

    It has been called "seriously creepy" (CoolAssCinema.com), "insanely violent" (Nerdist.com) and "truly repulsive" (DVD Talk). It was seized by UK authorities as a 'Video Nasty' and accused of being an actual snuff film. Yet even by '80s Italian gore-spewing standards, this grueling shocker from sex & sleaze maestro Joe D'Amato (BEYOND THE DARKNESS) still stands as perhaps the most controversial - and extreme - spaghetti splatter epic of them all. Tisa Farrow (ZOMBIE), Zora Kerova (CANNIBAL FEROX) and co-writer/producer George Eastman (STAGE FRIGHT, 1990: BRONX WARRIORS) star in this depraved daddy of cannibal carnage from "Italy's King of Trash Sinema" (Horrorpedia.com), now featuring a 2k scan from the original 16mm negative - including two of the most gut-retching scenes in horror history - and spurting with all-new Special Features.

    SPECIAL FEATURES:

    Don't Fear the Man-Eater - Interview with Writer/Star Luigi Montefiori a.k.a. George Eastman
    The Man Who Killed the Anthropophagus - Interview with Actor Saverio Vallone
    Cannibal Frenzy - Interview with FX Artist Pietro Tenoglio

Edmund Purdom (FRANKENSTEIN'S CASTLE OF FREAKS, PIECES) and Annie Belle (HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK, LAURE) co-star in this "violence-soaked bloodbath- (Hysteria Lives) and former 'Video Nasty' - also known as THE GRIM REAPER 2, ZOMBIE 6, HORRIBLE and MONSTER HUNTER - now featuring a 2k scan from the original negative and gushing with all-new Special Features.

    • 2018 Vci [Don't Look in the Basement + Don't Open the Door] (RA) Blu-ray at US Amazon released on 14th August 2018

    Promotional Material

    VCI presents in a very special - Ultimate Package - from the low budget, cult-film director, S.F. Brownrigg's (Poor White Trash 2 and Keep My Grave Open) gory, gruesome, greatness - DON'T OPEN THE DOOR and DON'T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT. 2 Doors... we dare you to open! Both restored from new 2K scans, so bloody good we warn you... To avoid fainting, keep repeating: It's only a movie...It's only a Movie!

    Don't Open the Door - In this effective, low-budget cult-classic, a dutiful granddaughter goes home to take care of her dying grandmother. Once there, she finds herself trapped inside the house with a homicidal maniac and all hell breaks loose.

    Don't Look into the Basement - this gory little chiller takes place in an experimental hospital for the criminally insane where the creative thinking director allows several inmates to act out their psychotic delusions (you know, like - necrophilia, paranoia, and popsicles). Things really start to get nuts when a new staffer arrives...starting with the bloody ax murder of the doctor himself and leading to a total takeover of this hallowed institution by its craziest and violent inhabitants.

    Bonus features include: Original Theatrical Trailers on Both Features, 2018 Commentary Track On Dont Look In The Basement from Film Historian and Journalist, David Del Valle & Genre Director, David Decoteau (Puppet Master III: Toulons Revenge) , Assorted other Grindhouse Trailers
