    Giallo Week for Cult Movie Challenge. I forget how much I love Italian horror. It reminds me of the old feeling I used to get watching horror movies. It feels like it's something I shouldn't be watching.

    I've only ever reviewed horror movies or thrillers that blurred that line. This was the only spaghetti western I could find with a zombie. I would have had no idea he was one if I didn't read the synopsis. So. Yea. Lots of guns and bullets.

    I'm so mad I've never seen this before. This is such an awesome 80's teen movie. Also zero percent chance anything even remotely close to this gets made today... and for good reason. But 80's movie will just have stuff you'll never see again.
