The English tagline, "To avoid fainting keep repeating, it's only a movie... only a movie... only a movie... only a movie..." was taken from the advertising campaign for Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left (1972). See more »

There's just something about early 70s Spanish horror that oozes with a palpable feeling of decay. Even though this was shot in England, the post-dubbed dialogue gives it away as being shot by a foreign language crew. Very convincing corpse makeup for a film of this vintage and great atmosphere from the cemeteries of England. There's also an anti-establishment strand in the plot with our innocent hero being persecuted by the cops just because of his long hair and remarks about religion being out of fashion with the youth of the day. There are some similarities to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD but this film is no rip-off but rather a very respectable horror film in the style of or inspired by the earlier film.
