Zombie Flesh Eaters 2 (1988)

Also called Zombi 3, the fake sequel to Zombi 2, itself the fake sequel to Dawn of the Dead, the real sequel to Night of the Living Dead.  Many, many other films share that title.  Lucio Fulci directed some, Bruno Mattei directed some, nobody's going to want to take credit for this.

There's a zombie outbreak in the Philippines.  The military contains the situation, killing zombie and human alike.  A few so-so gore effects, but mostly just people waving M16s around and people falling over.

Mildly interesting that it cribs some elements from 1985's The Return of the Living Dead, namely a tarman zombie and the spread by incineration smoke.  It's also got these hazmat suited soldiers, a trademark of Mattei's.
