Scott Warrington and his hired detective, Larry Adams, arrive at an old mansion in the middle of a Louisiana swamp to meet his brother-in-law, Dr. Max von Altermann shortly after the death of Scott's sister, Lila. Von Altermann, a Nazi who has been creating zombies for the armies of the Third Reich, has turned the deceased Lila into one of the undead as well, but is surprised when she shows signs of free will and challenges Max for control over his zombie thralls.

Quotes

Dr. Max Heinrich von Altermann: Against an army of zombies, no armies could stand. Why, even blown half to bits - undaunted by fire and gas - zombies would fight on so long as the brain cells which receive and execute commands still remain intact.

Dumb AND entertaining at the same time!
18 November 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Monogram Studios was a very low-budget film company that had a knack for creating dumb movies that still were often entertaining. Cerebral? Never...but fun in a low-brow sort of way. So, if you are looking for William Shakespeare, keep looking for another studio. But, if you like schlocky Lugosi, Carradine or George Zucco films, then this is the studio for you!

Here, we find John Carradine in a couple familiar roles--a mad scientist AND a Nazi!! But unlike the typical insane Nazi scientist, he has come up with a rather unique plan--to create an army of zombies! This way, they Third Reich will have super-soldiers who are impervious to pain and practically unstoppable. Being a really nice guy, he kills his own wife and reanimates her--he's THAT devoted to his goody cause. Into this weird little world of bizarre experiments come a group of do-gooders--including Monogram's king of scaredy-cats, Mantan Moreland. In this movie, Moreland basically plays the same guy he played in the Charlie Chan films--comic relief that occasionally actually helps despite himself! As I said above, this is NOT a film for the intellectually-minded and I am sure the Criterion Collection will NOT be releasing this film any time soon. The acting is occasionally quite bad, the plot silly and the whole thing makes no sense if you think about it....but it's an oddly satisfying B-movie if you like that sort of schlock! So, if you like schlock, then this is very good schlock!!
