Young workers are dying because of a mysterious epidemic in a little village in Cornwall. Doctor Thompson is helpless and asks professor James Forbes for help. The professor and his daughter Sylvia travel to Thomson. Terrible things happen soon, beyond imagination or reality. Dead people are seen near an old, unused mine. Late people seem to live suddenly. Professor Forbes presumes that black magic is involved and someone has extraordinary power. He doesn't know how close he is: the dead become alive because of a magic voodoo-ritual, and so they must serve their master as mindless zombies... Written by

Filmed back-to-back with The Reptile

In the waning moments of the film, a man can be seen whipping the zombies in the mines in order to get them to work faster. During several of his lashes, his whip strikes some of the beams supporting the mine and they wiggle dramatically. This indicates that the beams were not only incapable of supporting the mine, but were also not the sturdy wood they appear to be. See more
