I'm confused with some of the Zombie numbers. Is the new Zombi 2 from Media Blasters a different movie than Fulci's Zombie? For some reason, I thought they were the same movie, but had different names in different countries because another movie (Romero's?) was called Zombie in Europe. Please enlighten me!

Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD was released as ZOMBIE in Italy. Fulci's film was released as a (unofficial?) sequel in Italy, and thus called ZOMBIE 2 (or technically, ZOMBI 2). However, in the US it was not marketed as a sequel, but as a standalone film, so the title was just Zombie.

In other words, outside of the US, the films are known as Zombie (AKA DOTD in the US), Zombie 2 (AKA Zombie in the US), 3, 4, etc.

In the US, the chain goes: Zombie, Zombie 3, 4, etc. - skipping # 2, Because Zombie 2 was released as Zombie (1) in the US.

I probably just made it more confusing, I'm sure there's a simpler way to explain it.

Thanks for the information, but I guess I'm still a little confused about the upcoming Zombi 2 release from Media Blasters. Is this the same movie that Anchor Bay released as Zombie?

Yeah, it's the same film - it looks like they are just releasing it under the original Italian title.

If you're a fan of the film, It may be worth picking up since the original AB disc was a very early release and somewhat lacking in picture quality. Also, no anamorphic enhancement.

It looks like Media Blasters is releasing two editions - a 1-disc version and a version with a second disc of extras.

I still say 28 Days Later isn't a zombie movie, it's just like a zombie movie.

2. Night
3. Day
