Worthwhile Mexican zombie flick, 18 March 2008
Author: The_Void from Beverley Hills, England

This fairly unknown Mexican zombie movie may not be the most original horror film ever to be released, and clearly takes a lot of influence from many successful American movies in the same vein; but in it's own right, this is an extremely fun little romp that I'm sure wont be a disappointment to most people with an inclination to track it down. The plot is halfway between a zombie movie and a psycho slasher flick and focuses on a killer who a professor believes may have come back from the grave. Enter a bunch of kids who decide that it would be a good idea to read from a strange old book and resurrect the dead (to impress some girls, naturally). It's not long before the killer has come back as a zombie - bringing the rest of the cemetery with him and the dead have eating the kids' flesh on their minds. If you've seen more than a handful of zombie flicks, you'll have seen everything included in this film many times before. But that's not to say that Cemetery of Terror is not worth a look. Director Rubén Galindo Jr does an excellent job of creating a thoroughly fetid atmosphere to surround the cemetery at the centre of the film and there's a fair bit of gore included too, most of which is well done. Naturally the acting is nothing to write home about, but everyone approaches their roles with gusto and the film remains entertaining for the duration. Overall, this is not brilliant; but it's a more than worthy Mexican horror entry and I would say that it's worth seeing.
