is a cult classic. Made in 1968, produced by Russ Streiner, who also stars in
the film, it has been re-released in a 30th anniversary edition.
The film is in black and white, which might sound off putting, but it all adds
to the character of the film. It is about zombies or ghouls as they call them,
and how they rise to try and kill all the living.
starts off with a couple going to pay their respects at a graveyard, but when
the man gets attacked and killed, his girl has to fend for herself. The most
memorable part is when it shows a heap the ghouls swarming over a hill to get
into a house that has the girl who survived the original attack in it. Itís
just a pity that when itís all said and done, they end up killing someone who
is still alive.

clearer and features Dolby sound.
