Strangers searching for a young woman's missing father arrive at a tropical island where a doctor desperately seeks the cause and cure of a recent epidemic of the undead.
Like many Italian horror films of the time, half the cast spoke only English and the other half only Italian. Many Italian films produced for international distribution filmed without sound and recorded several dialog tracks in different languages in the studio for later overdubbing. Because the actors are speaking a number of different languages (or some are speaking a non-native language phonetically), the dubbing in all versions of the film is not 100% synchronized. Ian McCulloch, Tisa Farrow, Olga Karlatos, and Stefania D'Amario were of the main English speaking cast, while Al Cliver, Auretta Gay, and Dakar were of the main Italian-speaking cast.
The boat can leave now. Tell the crew.
During the shark vs. zombie fight the zombie tears a chunk of flesh off the shark. After an initial gout of blood there is no subsequent sign of either the wound or any blood in the water.
Some of the productions stills and lobby cards for "Zombi 2" feature a scene that was not in the final cut of the film, featuring the fat "boat zombie" at the beginning of the film climbing out of the river in New York, presumably after being shot into the water by the policeman on the derelict boat.
