After NYPD raid the home of dreaded serial killer The Manhattan Mutilator, they find evidence of ritual cannibalism with all traces leading to remote Caribbean island Azul.
Sandra Knowles, the sister of one of his victims, teams up with investigative reporter Peter East, police lieutenant Graham Gordon and female anthropologist Barbara Stanfield to investigate further.
Once arrived they find an island in the grip of fear, with the natives having resorted to voodoo superstitions to protect themselves against a centuries-old curse promising the return of plantation slaves killed in a massacre, and a sugar cane plantation owner that's not all what he seems.

Ever heard of Fabrizio Ardente‘s "ZOMBIES: Island of the Living Dead"? Don’t feel bad if you haven't ’cause it never existed. But I do like the plot summary.
Inspired by the late 70′s/early 80's synth sounds created by Fabio Frizzi for Lucio Fulci‘s cult classic "Zombie Flesh Eaters", and Nico Fidenco's similar work for Marino Girolami's "Zombi Holocaust", this faux-OST features songs, cues and stings imagined for a gory, Italian-produced video nasty circa 1982.
"When the full moon rise the dead will seek their revenge..."
Dedicated to Lucio Fulci.
Written and recorded on April 6-7th, June 30th and August 19-27th.
Mixed and mastered August 28-30.
Produced by Magnus Sellergren.
