ZOMBIE - ULTIMATE EDITION | © 2011 Blue Underground

Rating: Unrated Stars: Tisa Farrow, Ian McCulloch, Richard Johnson, Al Oliver, Auretta Gay, Olga Karalatos Writer: Elisa Briganti Director: Lucio Fulci Suggested Retail Price: $39.98 For being such a big horror fan, I have to admit I came a little late to the party in my appreciation of Italian horror master director Lucio Fulci. I knew of his movies, seen pieces of them, but never really sat down to fully embrace the filmmaker’s offbeat sensibilities and knack for unrelentingly disturbing gore. When it came to Fulci’s 1980 ZOMBIE, it was one of those films I completely overlooked it. In fact, …Read On »

For seven years on MEDIUM, Allison Dubois, played by Patricia Arquette, has seen and heard dead people, an ability she’s used to help the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney’s office. Her three young daughters all share some version of her gift. The only person in the household who doesn’t have psychic qualities is husband and father Joe Dubois, played by Jake Weber.
