Zombie Holocaust, is an Italian exploitation-horror movie directed by Marino Girolami.
It is also known by a number of alternative titles that include ‘Zombi Holocaust‘, ‘Zombie 3‘, and ‘Doctor Butcher, M.D‘.
Strictly speaking this is more of a cannibal film that a zombie film and the story follows an expedition to a remote jungle where a hospital worker (who was caught eating corpses) is from. Once there, the expedition finds themselves hunted by cannibals and zombies.
‘Zombie Holocaust’ gained notoriety as one of the most quoted examples in the early 80s clamp-down on ‘video nasties’, which only served to give it more publicity and turn it into a cult favourite.
The various titles that this film has come to be known by has given rise to a varied number artwork styles for trying to sell this film to the cinema going public. A quick glance at the posters below looks almost like a collection of completely different films.
