The most terrifying zombie massacre ever to come to the screen! In a small lakeside town in the French countryside, young women are disappearing without a trace. The superstitious locals blame "The Lake of Ghosts," but the town's mayor (Howard Vernon) seems reluctant, or powerless, to take any action. When another girl is found with her throat ripped out, a Paris reporter begins to uncover the deadly secrets of the lake and the dead, green-faced Nazis who are aroused to action!

As for the extras not much here except a couple of trailers, the opening scene with English credits and 2 alternate scenes without any nudity, which in the actual film itself are nude scenes.
As for the transfer Redemption did an amazing job perhaps better than the film deserved. Too many times I see cult films of the 70s and 80s with ok transfers. They might look better than their DVD counterparts, which sadly due to that gets a passing grade when we should demand better. The transfer for Zombie Lake is a knockout; there is grain, white specs and various print damage, but colors pop, clarity is great and this is just a great transfer. I've seen various horror and cult films on BD and this is one of the best, which puts films with a bit of a bigger budget to shame and Redemption also puts some major studios to shame when they have far more money to spend. I really cannot believe how great the video looked. When it comes to these transfers too many people say its an older film only so good it can look, which allows companies to give a decent enough transfer, but not as good as it can be. If Zombie Lake can look this excellent no excuses for any other cult films to not look as good if not better.
As for the audio you have to 2 options; one English dub and one French track (also dubbed since it was shot with no sound) from what my ears hear the tracks are nearly Identical. There are portions where one audio has a bit more of a kick behind it, but besides that to me they were identical. A film like this can be watched either way. The French track while the film is still poor it makes it a little less silly perhaps, but a film this bad the English dub helps provide plenty of laughs (the French track does as well). So a film like this really doesn't matter how you view it. Each has something going for it. Normally I prefer the track, which is actually be spoken, but in this case I think I prefer the English dub since it helps add to the odd charm Zombie Lake has.
Quality wise Zombie Lake is a winner and I can name several films with a bit more of a budget and or put out by major studios with far more money to spend and yet Zombie Lake trumps it in video quality. If you're a fan of this film the disc is a must own for the great video and decent audio despite the lack of features audio and video make up for it. Zombie Lake is easily one of the worst films made, but I find it great fun though some just find it a hack job. Like I said if you've never seen a Jean Rollin film except this seek out Grapes of Death as it shows he was a filmmaker with talent even if you can't see that here.
looks like it was made in the 70's, which is a plus right there, but I don't know when it was made.
The German soldiers rising out of the lake has been done once before, and better in Shock Waves,
but it still isn't bad.
Lots of T&A in the first part of the film, then mostly kinda tame zombie action, with a lot
of blood, but tastefully done, if that's possible.
Zombies and naked women. It meets my only 2 requirements.
