Zombie’s G(al)ore

Here is the classic Lucio Fulci zombie shark scene, from the movie zombie II. The scene is a bit like a choreographed dance. Speculation about how Fulci produced a fairly docile tiger shark is rampant in discussions of the film. The scene is also noteworthy in that it amends zombie lore by suggesting that zombie’s will attack animals, something, to my memory, that we never see in Romero‘s films.
Diary of the Dead
And speaking of Romero, he’s recently wrapped up Diary of the Dead, and will be working on a zombie comedy?! Shaun of the Dead like?

    I am very excited about the new Romero. Do you know anything specific about the plot? Seems less topical than its predecessors (and seemingly less connected to global politics–that is, unless it continues the “zombies are essentially exploited lumpenproletarians we should sympathize with”-theme from _Land_).

    Not a whole lot. Apparently he wants to take some shots at the 4th estate. Ha!
