Christina von Blanc,
The medallion which the French girl gives to her German soldier lover is actually a finger rosary; hence the ten small balls around the outside. See more »
In the end scene where the villagers have all of the zombies together in a barn and then set them on fire with a flamethrower, the scene starts in evening with the night getting really dark. But in shots you can see through the barns windows and doors, that the sky keeps alternating from dark evening, to bright day sky. Then after the zombies are killed by the fire, the sky has now changed to a permanent crystal blue day sky. See more »
Worst zombie ever made? Not even close. Hunt down Joel Reed's magnificent Night of the Zombies. Watch it. Watch it again. Burn it and scatter the ashes. Then watch Zombie Lake.
Note that Zombie Lake has lovely shots of the scenic French countryside; educational underwater gynecological shots of an entire girls' basketball team; a recognizable sub-plot; one or two actors who can actually distort their faces into "expressions." Night of the Zombies has NONE of these, NONE.
Did I mention the underwater photography?
However, I understand that there are versions of Zombie Lake out there that lack both the amazing Sea Hunt sequence and many of the heartwarming nay-nay shots. Ha! That's like a special edition of GoodFellas with Joe Pesci edited out. You get one of these versions, you put up with it, you might as well write, "Please Don't Hurt Me" on your forehead in pink lipstick and check into the nearest Federal prison. Wuss. Gimp.
