Scary Spanish horror with sensationalistic images , Naif style and lots of blood and gore
8 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

A madman seeks vengeance by setting an army of walking corpses to stalk the cemetery , streets and houses of London and surrounding . Jacinto Molina or Paul Naschy who habitually sprouts hair and fangs , actually doesn't turn into Wolfman . The film mingles esoteric philosophy , voodoo, intrigue , satanism , gore and romantic elements . The picture deals about a guru named Krisna (Paul Naschy) who reunites a group of friends in his mansion. He has knowledge in secret Antillan voodoo and Indian magic . Krisna is helped by another Indian woman named Kala (Mirta Miller). There appears Elvire Irwing (Rommy), an aristocrat young who is impressed for the peculiar personality of the Faquir . Meantime at a cemetery of a little village a gravedigger (Fernando Sanchez Polack) and his wife carry out the exhumation the tomb of Gloria Irwing , but them she is brought to life by means of voodoo and subsequently kills the couple . After that , an Inspector (Antonio Pica) from New Scotland Yard is investigating the grisly murders assisted by a psychiatry professor (Vic Winner) expert on voodoo , occultism and black magic . Later on , it happens amazing murders in the Kadoga,'s Cold Meat Industry and the Morgue. While at a countryside mansion Elvire falls in love with Krisna and she learns a curse that happened in 1947 during India Independence in which a young girl was raped and the subsequent revenge carried out against the rapist .

This is a Spanish Horror though partially filmed in England. It contains suspense , necromancy , witchery , tension , beheading and lots of blood and guts with abundant sensationalistic scenes and a Naif style. The movie has a bit of ridiculous gore with loads of blood similar to tomato . B-entertainment with a fairly suspenseful and horrifying story in which a killer and walking Zombies undergo a criminal spree by means of slitting , decapitation and other brutal executions . This is the third time that appears Zombies in Spanish cinema, exception to Amando De Ossorio's Templar living dead and ¨Horror rises from the tomb¨ .Surrealist images when Rommy dreams about a diabolic possession with characters painted in purple and a horned Naschy as devil . There appears Aurora Del Alba from ¨The Mark of Wolfman¨ as Zombie in slow-moving . As usual , Paul Naschy explains his knowledges with cheap erudition , as the voodoo and Zombie origin result to be the Antillas ; a magician called Minister by means of some malicious spirits prepares a Black Mass and appears a kind of devil named Baron Samedi , then the wizard dropping blood on a wax-toy and sacrificing a hen , the sorcerer helped by a medium turns into immortal slitting a woman and drinking his blood .

The late Naschy was a good professional , writing, filmmaking and acting about hundred titles , mainly in terror genre. ¨ Vengeance of Zombies¨ is written by Molina along with 21 screenplays as ¨A dragonfly for each corpse¨ , ¨Mark of Wolfman¨, ¨Night of Walpurgis¨, ¨Fury of Wolfman¨ ,¨Vengeance of the mummy¨, ¨Licantropo¨, among others . He directed 13 films as ¨The Cantabros¨, ¨Return of Wolfman¨, ¨The Beast and the magic sword¨ and many others. Filmed in London and at Ballesteros Studios and the mansion of the Naschy's parents . Packs an anti-climatic and unappropriated musical score by Juan Carlos Calderon . This is a production realized by Profilmes - the Spanish Hammer- whose chairmen , Ricardo Muñoz , Modesto Perez Redondo and Jose Antonio Perez Giner assigned to Jacinto Molina the writing a rapid screenplay . This strange motion picture is middlingly directed by Leon Klimovsky and plenty of flaws and gaps . Klimovsky was a slick craftsman who directed all kind of genres, as Terror for Paul Naschy (Marshall of hell,Rebellion of dead one,Orgy of vampires, Werewolf shadow,Dr Jekill vs. the werewolf), Warlike(June 44 attack force Normandy, A bullet for Rommel, Bridge over Elba) and Western (Badland drifter,Some dollars for Django,Death knows no time, Two thousand dollars for Coyote) . Rating : 4,5 , mediocre. The picture will appeal to Paul Naschy fans ; a must for Jacinto Molina/bad film buffs .
