The Zombie Series Otherwise Known As The Zombi series refers to a set of various horror film series that have been marketed, in various territories, as sequels to either George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978) or Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 (1979). It has a confusing history of release, with numerous entries in different series varying by different regions in the world. The British releases of the same movies are known as the Zombie Flesh Eaters series and the American releases, while not having a consistent name, could be known as simply the Zombie series.The Zombi series started with George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead. The European release of that movie was re-edited and re-scored by Italians Dario Argento and Goblin, and released as Zombi. Because of its success, a zombie film by Lucio Fulci (already in production) was retitled Zombi 2 to appear as if it were a sequel. This was the first in a run of increasingly tenuous attempts by different producers to capitalize on the Zombi name.
