Obviously oblivious to the use the military is planning to put it to, doctor Holder (Robert Marius) develops a compound called Death One, that is able to spread a deadly disease.

Of course enemy forces are more than eager than get their hands on it & promptly rob it from a military base. & though they are hunted down soon enough, one of them has already contracted the disease & turned into a flesh-eating zombie. & when he is burned, his ashes spread over the whole area, randomly infecting people & birds ... like the birds Patricia (Beatrice Ring) & her boyfriend Glen find lying dead on the street they are driving on, but when they want to pick them up , they suddenly come to life again & attack them, and they also attack a busload of girls , who are saved by a trio of soldiers.

Soon the girls & the soldiers take up camp in an abandoned hotel to nurse the wounds of those hurt by the birds, yet oblivious to the fact that they all will turn into zombies eventually.

One of the girls & one of the soldiers soon decide to go looking for help too, but wouldn't you know, on their way through a nearby abandoned village their car breaks down, & they are of course attacked by zombies, who eat her up while he runs across Patricia & the wounded Glen who offer him a ride. But soon Glen has turned into a zombie & attacks the others, successfully killing off the soldier with some undead colleagues while Pat saves herself by jumping from a bridge.

Back at the hotel, things start to worsen, too, since the place seems zombie infested from the beginning, as an undead head is found in a fridge that jumps at one of the group, killing him.

But it doesn't seem until Pat joins them that the soldiers are even starting to comprehend the seriousness of the situation, then they finally start to barricade themselves in, but their barricades do not hold the zombies off for even half a minute (really !).

The survivors of the group are soon down to 4 - Patricia, Roger (Richard Raymond), Kenny (deran Serafian) & Nancy (Ulli Reinthaler), & they, escaping the hotel & trying to make it to safety, now not only have to fioght the zombies but also the military who has been ordered  by general Morton (Mike Monty) to shoot anyone in the area.

The foursome soon comes to a hospital where Pat is confronted by her boyfriend Glen again, who, despite his undead condition has not lost his appetite for her (though appetite has now a quite literary meaning), but she manages to kill him, while Nancy wants to help a pregnant woman in the infirmary to give birth, but instead is killed by the baby who is already a zombie.

In the end, only Pat & Kenny make an escape by a helicopter they conveniently find on the premises while Roger is turned into a zombie-snack covering their back.

In the end, our 2 survivors hear over the radio that radio announcer Blue Heart - who has held the film together as a sort of Greek Chorus - has turned into a zombie too - in a scene even more hilarious than that of the radio announcer at the end of Zombi 2).

 

It should have been an ecological zombie thriller & the long-awaited sequel to Fulci's biggest success Zombi 2, but the chaotic conditions under which this film was made are well mirrored in the outcome, that, if anything, proves the total disinterest the movies makers had into their product (Fulci even left the set prematurely & the film had to be finished by Bruno Mattei - which shows in the pitiless treatment of its lead characters, but also in the fact that the plot is alnmost identical to Mattei's earlier Virus).

The film actually fails in almost any department, creating an atmosphere (& despite other flaws Fulci's horror movies had, & there are many, he was always eager to create a spooky atmosphere), storytelling (the movie totally fails to focus on any of the characters, they seem to be just thrown in to be bumped off at any deliberate moment), characterizations (which was always a weak spot of any Italian zombie movie), & even the zombie masks & gore effects are worse than average Italo-zombie fare.

Robert Marius's uncontrolled overacting as the central scientist is a hoot all in itself though, & gives the mofie at least some unintentional chuckles.
