Kind of a mess.
5 November 2002 | by (Planet Gong) – See all my reviews

Not the best movie I've seen but, hey, this is Jerry Warren we're talking about here. The title itself is kind of odd - "Creature of the Walking Dead". What does that mean? I like the original Mexican title better - "The Mark of the Dead". This one's about a mad scientist who stalks young women for their blood, which he needs to perpetuate his eternal youth. Not much going for it in that department, though the Mexican stalking scenes are a little creepy. But it's pure Jerry Warren when Katherine Victor holds a seance in the American part of the movie! Still, the editing wasn't too bad and if this toured the drive-in circuit then maybe no one noticed there wasn't much of a story.
