    All right you horror and zombie fans, don't let me down! I'm hoping to find the name of an Italian-made zombie movie (not "Zombie") that came out in the late 70's/early 80's. Here's what I have:
    • Film was dubbed in English from the original Italian
      Was about a SWAT-like team in a jungle-type setting
      The lead SWAT guy kind of’ looked like Vic Morrow (but wasn’t)
      At one point, a SWAT member dressed up in a ballerina outfit (tutu) and was then eaten by zombies
    HELP!

    Sounds like Bruno Mattei's 1981 film Hell of the Living Dead, available on DVD from Anchor Bay.

    You guys know your zombie films. [​IMG]
    It's more of a lame rip-off of Romero's Dawn of the Dead and an unintentional comedy than a straight horror flick.

    Thanks for the title information!
    It's nice to know that there are other flesh-eating-zombie-philes out there!

    There's a lot of zombie fans here Berk. Besides myself and the others in this thread, there is also the person I consider THE EXPERT...Julie_K. She's the queen of zombie movies.
