Shortly after the corpse is stolen, a cane is moved over the corpse, and you can very clearly see eyelids twitch on the actor who is playing dead. It is so obvious, that it made at one viewer think the "corpse" is alive, or coming back to life. See more »
Aaaaahhh, the classic B-movie horror films of the 70's and 80's... they don't make them like that anymore.
I had never heard of this film before my lovely lady bought it for me while she was away. Yesterday I decided to sit down and watch it... I loved it.
Now it has everything you can expect from a cheesy B-movie horror: Cheap gore, Lots of murders, Topless women, Bad acting, Terrible effects.
But the last 2 are not negative remarks... if the acting and the effects were good, it would not feel right.
The film is about an old horror actor, which i believe was an imitation of Christopher Lee, that dies and has his grave made into a crypt where people can go and see his body and see video messages from him. Some teenagers decide to steal his body from the crypt to have a party with it, but little did they know that when they took the body some black magic happened thanks to his widow and he comes back to life to take revenge on his kidnappers...
It is a great film... and it even has a young Jeffrey Combs in. He made this 2 years before he made Re-Animator. The only other face I recognised in this film was Scott Thomson. And I mainly know him for playing Chad Copeland in a couple of the Police Academy movies.
I will give this film 7 out of 10.
A really entertaining film which is comedy gold.
