Zombi (1979, Directed by Lucio Fulci) Did You Know?: On VHS, Zombi was released in the US as "Zombi 2." Unfortunately, there aren't two Zombi films; Zombi was titled "Zombi 2" in its home country to capitalize on the Italian success of George Romero's Dawn of the Dead (as for what Dawn of the Dead's Italian title was, take a wild guess). vs. The Hills Have Eyes (2006, Directed by Alexandre Aja) Did You Know?: Alexandre Aja was offered the chance to direct this remake after the international success of his debut feature, Haute Tension (AKA Switchblade Romance), a seminal film in the torture porn sub-genre of horror films.
