The medium teams up with a reporter to find the town of Dunwich (yes, this film was greatly inspired by H.P. Lovecraft). Their plan is to kill the priest zombie and thus stop the armies of the living dead from rising from the grave and destroying the world. This seems easy enough. These zombies have extra powers, however. They can stare at their victims and make their eyes bleed. If you look at them long enough, your intestines will start oozing out of your mouth. They can also teleport.
This film is campy and the dubbing is terrible, but it is worth it. What wonderful horrors can you expect in Fulci's masterpiece? A great scene involving a drill bit to the head, intestines oozing out of victim's mouths, lots of squishy brain scenes, a scene in which it rains maggots, and zombies that look like they are covered in vomit and worms. This is an absolute must see for any zombie movie lover.
