In this cult classic from Italian “Maestro of Gore” Lucio Fulci, a journalist named Peter West (played by Ian McCulloch) helps the daughter of a scientist named Anne Bowles (played by Tisa Farrow) search for her father after her father’s boat is found with a zombie in it off the coast of New York. Their search leads them to a Caribbean island where a horrifying disease transforms people into flesh-eating zombies.
