Written by the prolific horror veteran Paul Naschy, and starring him in
multiple roles as usual, Vengeance
of the Zombies
is about ... (wait for it) ... zombies realizing vengeance.
Famous half-naked women are turned into zombies by evil voodoo rituals and made to kill their own family members,
all of whom have some connection to India. We see the story through the
eyes of Rommy, who is fascinated by a mystic named Krishna (Paul Naschy), despite the fact
that his brother (also Paul Naschy) has horrible burn scars and is not very
nice. She goes to visit them in the country, where the final act of revenge
and deification of the leader is to take place. Scotland Yard is cold on the
trail, as is Rommy's professor/author boyfriend.
The acting, especially in action scenes, is laughably bad, and the story
is far less than brilliant. The film does include a fast zombie, and there's
some blood-drinking and bondage for those that enjoy that sort of thing, but I
found little or nothing to like.
Scoop's note: Unbelievably enough, this film
is available in Blu-Ray!
