Zombi 2 is a classic Italian horror film from 1979, directed by Lucio Fulci. Despite being unofficially billed as a sequel to George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (released in Italy as Zombi), the two films share no common characters or storylines. Instead, Zombi 2 tells the tale of a young woman named Anne (Tisa Farrow) who travels to a Caribbean island to find out what happened to her father, a scientist who had been conducting research there. Accompanied by a reporter named Peter (Ian McCulloch), Anne soon discovers that the island is overrun with flesh-eating zombies.

The film starts with a mysterious boat moving towards the New York harbor with the crew being dead. The authorities, suspecting that it is a disease outbreak, send reporter Peter West (Ian McCulloch) and a scientist's daughter, Anne Bowles (Tisa Farrow) to investigate. The investigation leads to the discovery that Anne's father was studying the worm that turns people into zombies on an island somewhere in the Caribbean. Anne decides to take up the mission to find her father and leaves for the island with Peter. On their arrival, they find the island to be deserted, except for a small group of people that include Professor Harold Monroe (Richard Johnson), the father's colleague, and a couple, Brian (Al Cliver) and Susan (Auretta Gay).

As they journey deeper into the island, they come across a danger that is beyond their imagination. The island is infested with flesh-eating zombies that are set to finish off every living soul on the island. They are led to an abandoned church where they uncover some unsettling secrets and the truth behind the zombies. Along the way, they face many harrowing encounters, including a zombie attack on their boat and an intense battle with the undead in the church.
