(1941, Monogram)Dick Purcell, John Archer, Mantan Moreland, Henry Victor. Believe it or not, this film was actually nominated for an academy award. Yep, that's right. Best scoring for a dramatic picture. It was a new category in 1941. Zombies run amok on a jungle island. Mantan Moreland is priceless. 16mm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Good Ole Fun !! October 16, 2013
This movie is among the many included in the "50 Horror Classic" pack. If you're in the mood for an old black and white movie, complete with the old horror sounds, catatonic pale faces walking about you can't go wrong here. There's a little of everything including loads of comedy from the hilarious black servant. If you have 75 minutes to spare give it a go, I think you'll like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quaint Old Throwback on Zombie Genre March 17, 2014
By Mike G.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of old black and white films you will enjoy this movie. Conversely, I would not recommend this title if you are not a fan of the oldies, or if you are exceedingly politically correct you may find Mantan Moreland's depiction offensive. However, I found lines such as "I been de-zombified" and "I ain't no zombie" quite amusing. The rating of this film is quite subjective depending upon the viewer's perspective.

In many ways, "King of the Zombies" is the quintessential 1940s poverty row horror comedy. It has everything: an intrepid hero, his sidekick, his black comic relief servant, a bad German scientist, a seemingly haunted house, zombies, a plucky heroine, and even a musical number of sorts (this movie received an Oscar nomination for Best Music!). The only thing it's missing is a gorilla in the basement. It also has a painfully bad script and non-direction by Jean Yarbrough, one of Hollywood's premiere talentless hacks. But it does have Mantan Moreland, who in his career saved more films than the UCLA Preservation Archives, and when the hideous jokes he's required to say don't get in the way, he's pretty funny. The plot, such as it is, has Moreland, John Archer (who's the film's real lead, despite being billed halfway down the cast list), and Dick Purcell (who plays the sidekick, despite star billing) crash land on a mysterious island somewhere around the Bahamas. They come upon the house of Dr. Sangre (Henry Victor, essentially playing Bela Lugosi while often dressed like Sherlock Holmes), a mysterious German scientist who lives with his niece (Joan Woodbury) and his ghost-like wife (Patricia Stacey). Sagre also has a native staff, including a creepy, emaciated butler (Leigh Whipper), who seems to have the ability to be in two places at once; a hag-like cook and voodoo priestess (Madame Sul-Te-Wan); and a hot, sassy Harlem-born maid (Marguerite Whitten), whose presence there is incongruous, to say the least. And there's a bunch of shambling zombies. Oh, and an admiral who earlier crash landed on the island. There's not really a story here, just a plot, as all the characters run around the dark, eerie house and interact with each other. Read more ›
