Was shot under the title "Shadows over Bridge Place", but later released as "House of the Living Dead" and "Curse of the Dead" to cash in on the then-popular zombie movies, even though there are no zombies in the movie whatsoever. See more »
A decent way to pass the time, some late evening, if you enjoy B-movies!
Right off the bat, I previously had no idea that South Africa made any horror films, so, simply in that, I learned something.
Over a long career (1968-99), this was one of only three cinematic works that director Austin made (all in the early 70's)--usually he did TV work--and in fact, production value-wise, it seemed like made-for-TV fare. Basically a vineyard/plantation with black, witchcraft-practicing slaves, and the owner harbouring a dark secret: A genius twin brother, who was discredited in the medical community to begin with, and then, since an almost-fatal brain injury suffered in an accident a year ago, basically insane and confined to the mansion's attic.
It was decently made and, as late-night fare, perfectly acceptable. It could have been made a lot better in more capable hands. The underlying ideas were very interesting, though only decently carried out, and the climax was completely predictable, though no less enjoyable. I got my copy very cheaply, in Mill Creek's 50-pack 'Nightmare Worlds', and it's watchable, no better, no less.
