Storyline

Follow-up to Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from Outer Space" about the walking dead, It opens in a cemetery. Criswell, the "real" medium, rises from his coffin to tell us of "monsters to be despised." Dr. Acula (Kenne Duncan) is a phony medium aided by Valda Hansen, a bogus ghost, and big Tor Johnson, wearing rags and horrible scar makeup as Lobo. The doctor swindles people by pretending to contact dead relatives, but then accidentally succeeds in reviving a bunch of corpses that bury him alive! Sat unreleased for 23 years because Wood couldn't pay the lab bill! Followed by "Sinister Urge" in 1961 (Wood's last film). Written by alfiehitchie

Whew! Somebody open a window, because this movie STINKS!
4 April 2013 | by (northern Vermont) – See all my reviews

This Edward D. Wood, Jr. creation gets my vote as 'The Worst Film of All-Time'.

From Paul Marco's animated acting to director Ed Wood's $1.98 special effects, this flick reeks, but darn it if it ain't entertaining just the same. Skeletons propped up in chairs at a seance, a bed sheet wandering across a room to the sound of a toy whistle, a guy making faces and weird mouth nosies while wearing a tin hat, and a trumpet hanging by a couple of strings badly tooting a few sorry licks for no discernible reason -- maybe these things will coax you into watching this celluloid mayhem, but mind, I'm not trying to convince you myself.

Truly a gem of horrendous movie mania.
