Trivia

Filmed for the most part in the late 1970's this film was not released until several years later by which time some of the players, such as Hope Summers were already dead, and when additional footage, including some gratuitous nudity, was added, along with a 1985 copyright statement. By 1987 it had already found its way to video. See more »

* out of 4.

Wretched film was the result of three (or two) unfinished films being edited together in order to create one film. The final results are a choppy and dull. What little plot there is, is about a crazed doctor bringing the dead back to life in order to create an army of zombies in a small town. Virtually no gore is present in this so called zombie outing and the film doesn't even entertain in a so bad it's good way. One of the absolute worst horror films to ever be made. Rated R.
