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.

User Reviews

Not much, except for Mantan.

In this poverty row quickie, John Carradine plays an Axis scientist who is trying to create a zombie army to defeat the Allies in WW2. However, he gets more than he bargained for when he turns his own wife into a zombie.

This Monogram comedy/horror quickie is pretty much zombified itself. Even the big climax isn't much. One scene of Carradine in his lab has some visual flair, but mostly this film is shot in medium. The film only comes to life when Mantan Moreland gets to do his stuff. I'm aware that Mantan Moreland is considered "politically incorrect" by most of today's self illuminated cultural and intellectual elite, but Moreland always gave a professional performance. His comic timing is perfect. Sybil Lewis is quite good as the straight women for Mantan to play off.
