This is the first feature length zombie film ever produced and has one of the best openings of any flick in the genre. Having just turned down the role of FRANKENSTEIN, Bela Lugosi was anxious to jump at the next offering that sounded like a hit. It did well enough to make some cash but the critics at the time didn’t dig it. This eventually has come to be respected though not without an asterix or two such as the over-acting which can sometimes step on any moment of true horror. The Halperins followed up this film with a pseudo sequel called REVOLT OF THE ZOMBIES which should be avoided at all costs.
