Nothing like finding a film I've never heard of and being happy with the viewing. This movie does burn slowly at first. There's a murder, most of the death being left up to the imagination. There's the investigation where Arthur Kennedy gets to be curmudgeonly and almost maintain an Irish accent throughout. The leads are attractive and thrown into a situation which at first seems just irritating but soon becomes deadly dangerous.
The music is most effective when it's mostly sound effects. When the zombie get going they really get going (yeah, they're the slow kind, but they are inventive!) and the gore gets more intense as we near the climax, pointing toward Romero’s Dawn of the Dead but ahead of it by four years.
One thing I learned while watching that is that what's even more dangerous than zombies is Brits trying to drive in reverse!
Unlike so many Amazon prime flicks, the print of this one is excellent as is the sound. Ignore the nay sayers and give it a try.
It wasn't the original title sequence , it was put on with a title generator ! Otherwise the film is entirely intact.
I own a 16MM print I purchased from a new York booking agency and it's completely uncut .
If it wasn't for the title sequence, this would be a 5 star , must have horror film.
This will be my final review for Amazon however. I can only go so far.
But. It was interesting enough to occasionally prove entertaining (all the scenes when Arthur Kennedy wasn't on screen raving like a lunatic). I've seen it twice, I'll keep it to watch again. But he could have been so much better than it was.
