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

Trivia

Tor Johnson reprises his "Lobo" role from _Bride Of The Monster (1955)_. The "Lobo" that Tor plays in The Unearthly (1957) is not the same character. See more »

Goofs

The house on Willows Lake made its original appearance in Bride Of The Monster, where it was known as The Willows House on Lake Marsh. Since burning down and being rebuilt, it became a single floor ranch (it was a rather large Victorian in BOTM). Later in the movie, the house is shown to once again be a large house via staircases and a tremendous amount of rooms. See more »

Do not adjust your TV, the movie is what's warped!
2 May 1999 | by (Hammond, IN, USA) – See all my reviews

Just when I thought that Plan 9 was as bizarre as Ed Wood movies could get, here we have Night of the Ghouls! This defines 'Z' grade films! I couldn't stop laughing at the seance scene (which had a Ghost with a whoopie whistle, a trumpet suspended by wire, and a member of Devo...or maybe just some dude with a bowl on his head making faces at the camera...)

A must see for MiSTies and bad movie freaks like myself!
