Paul Naschy plays a supporting role as a deranged gravedigger in this zombie movie, set in a small highland village in 19th-century Scotland, where a stranger's arrival to claim an inheritance is met with apocalyptic visions and other evil omens. The town unearths a crypt full of horrors, including a devil-worshipping coven and throngs of the living dead. Written by
Paul Naschy had to play a secondary role as Igor the gravedigger because he was acting in another movie being shot at the exact same time. See more »
When confronted by two of the zombies after escaping the catacombs, Serges shoots one of them nine times with his revolver. This was after already discharging it in the catacombs several times, but prior to any reloading. Most revolvers contain only five or six cartridges. See more »
This is likable enough without being particularly striking in any way. There are silly slips, that render the film more laughable than it should be but overall it is perfectly watchable because it keeps going at a decent pace. Because something is always happening and our interest is retained the odd slip up is forgiven. Also the zombies are surprisingly effective, there is a little gore and a decent spread of nudity throughout. Paul Naschy does his usual thing as well as ever, just short of going right over the top and the denouement is just about acceptable if a little far fetched. Some very good moments and never a dull one, would be a fair assessment, I reckon.
