Extremely good effects for a 1973 Film.
2 September 2004 | by thekingofhorrorSee all my reviews

I purchased Horror Rises from the Tomb as part of a four DVD zombie pack. This is defiantly a little gem and I recommend it to any who by chance come across a copy. The special effects are extremely good for a 1973 movie. The blood isn't pink like in many of the old Hammer films and every single woman in the movie takes her cloths off!!! How can you beat something like that? At least they're realistic about it. I mean, if your going to cut someone's heart out you might as least remove her shirt first. Makes sense to me. Overall it was a strong story, with great acting and effects. A review of the IMDb database shows that many of the lead actors and actresses are still alive and acting today and I am interested in seeing some more of Carlos Aured's films. His last film was the Charles Band film 'Eliminators' (1986).

Strongly recommended but only for lovers of old school horror. All in all I'd say this film was about five or six years ahead of it's time. I'll also go as far to say that Tom Savini was probably inspired for one of his effects from Dawn of the Dead by a gruesome effect from this movie but I won't give anything away…
