"Oh how I love Media-Blasters. They are putting out movies that time has forgotten. The Zombie Pack 2 includes Burial Ground and Zombie Holocaust both from Italy and Flesh Eater, which is American.
Burial Ground directed by Andrea Bianchi is the so bad that it's a great movie. If you like silly Italian horror flicks loaded with gore this one is for you. There is no plot at all. Just zombie killing people.
What I love about this movie is Peter Bark. He looks like a mini Dario Argento and easily has to be in his 20s or 30s and he is playing a child. And not only that, but his character Michael really likes his mother I'll leave it that.
Also from Italy is Zombie Holocaust directed by Marino Girolami. Though I have to question why they included Zombie Holocaust. It's more of a cannibal flick than a zombie movie. The zombies don't even kill anybody.
They show up making funny noises and scare away the cannibals, but regardless Zombie Holocaust is a fun film with some good gore scenes.
The highlight of the movie is when one guy jumps out a window; it's fairly obvious it's a dummy and when it hits the ground limbs go flying, yet when we cut down to him everything is still in place.
Finally we have the American movie Flesh Eater by S. William Hinzman best known as the zombie that chases after Barbara in the cemetery in the opening of George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead.
Flesh Eater had potential to be a great bad movie, but while it has it's moments just not enough. Once the main characters are killed off zombies just roam around killing people. Sounds great right? Yeah I thought that as well, but trust me it gets old. It's the same scene over and over again for a good 40-min or so.
All 3 movies on the Zombie Pack 2 are quite fun with Burial Ground being the best of the trio.
Like the first Zombie Pack you aren't getting the best horror flicks out there, but for those who love trashy cult cinema (and if you are reading this I'm sure you are a fan) you get some really fun movies.
All 3 of the movies on the Zombie Pack 2 go for a little over $20 each, but with the set you get all 3 for about $20. Even if you only wanted 1 movie from the set it pays to buy the set.
Thank you Media-Blasters for putting out these cult classics.
Zombie Holocaust has a double sider cover. The other side goes under the name Dr. Butcher, Medical Deviate."
Bargain for the price..

"...well if you buy these separate they run at $19.99 to $24.99 a pop so you do the math. This is a great buy for the price. About the movies:
Burial Ground: not bad at all, the zombies look creepy, the atmosphere is creepy. Not a bad zombie flick. 4/5
Zombie Holocaust: a gory gem. Pretty graphic, nuff said. 4/5
Flesh Eater: horribly low budget, it sounds like it was dubbed even though it is in English. It is extrememly cheesy, but has some really cool gory scenes. 3/5
Gets the five star treatment because it is basically a steal for the price. Order from amazon, I was unable to track this set in any store so I ordered form here and received it in about three days. No complaints here."

"This set contains the films "Zombie Holocaust" , "Burial Ground" & "Flesheater". Zombie holocaust and Burial ground are essintles for any Zombie collection. Flesheater is a piece of garbage and is good for a coaster. Burial ground is most famous for the breast eating/ripping scene."
A Gorehound's Delight!(all others proceed with caution)

"The best part about Media Blasters release of the "Zombie Pack part 2" is the price.
I bought this at a best buy for under fifteen bucks,and can't complain,as the company delivers good,quality prints to even the worst films.
And boy are these bad.
If your a gorehound and/or a zombie enthusiast,than by all means,check this set out.
Most others should run away.
Three films are packaged within this set,and are as follows:
Burial Ground(1980)-One of the most notorious Italian gore films ever made,features some terrific looking zombies and nice atmosphere,but almost no character development or much of a story.
It is,however,unintentionally funny.
The "child" in the film is actually a young man in his early 20s with bad make-up on(!),whose sole purpose is to have an incestous relationship with his stacked mother!
The most famous scene is the one where the child turned zombie sucks on one of his mom's big breasts and decides to bite!
Not a good film.
Zombie Holocaust(1980)-With a title like that....how can you go wrong!?
Actually it's a pretty uninvolving gore piece,originally titled the much cooler,"Dr Butcher M.D" and is a grindhouse favorite.
The idea was to combine the Italian zombie film with the Italian Cannibal film,except with less than stellar results.
There's some nice nudity,Ian Mcculloch from Lucio Fulci's "Zombie" is in it,and it's pretty gory,too.
Ain't much of a plot:Cannibal cult loose in New York City.
Doctors trace cult to island,encounter zombies and mad doctor,become experiments.
Mediocre at best.
Flesh Eater(1987)-The third film in the set,and the only American made one,is also the worst.
Bill Hinzman,who portrayed the "graveyeard zombie" in Night of the Living Dead(1968),directs and stars in his own zombie epic!
He portrays,basically the same ghoul from Romero's film,except he's found buried in an ancient metal coffin(?) and wearing his best sunday clothes!
(Now considering,that the people in the movie believe this to be hundreds of years old,how does that account for his modern dress?).
The typical group of stupid kids decide to party in the woods(!) and get attacked by the ravenous zombie unleashed!
The gore is TERRIBLE and the acting is not much better.
There are no characters at all,just people waiting to get killed.
In fact,these kids make the "Friday the 13th" kids look like Brain Surgeons!
To add insult to injury,Hinzman steals entire scenes from Romero's film,including the siege in a farmhouse,the demise of the last surviving character and so on.
It also seems that Hinzman has transparently cast himself,as the groper of many a young babe's boobs!
Hmmmmmmmmmm.....sound like a great film to you?
Nothing to go crazy about here,but this set is fun viewing for a lost Saturday night,coupled with good friends,alcohol and junk food.
