While this movie is known in the states as “Zombie”, the Italian title is Zombi 2 (the original “Zombi”  is actually George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead – go figure).  In this film, a mysterious boat floats into the New York Harbor.  The harbor patrol believes the boat to abandoned, but there’s actually a zombie aboard who attacks the the patrolmen.  This leads to an investigation to figure out where the boat and the zombie came from.
