Professor Ayres discovers a secret in an ancient stone and when he opens a crypt, he revives zombies that kill him. He had invited three couples to visit him in his manor to reveal his discovery. However, they never get around to meeting the professor. Out of the blue, the zombies attack them and they seek shelter in the mansion. The creatures put the manor under siege while they protect themselves trying to survive to the horde of zombies.

During the opening credits, several cars are seen driving along a winding two-lane road through the countryside. Several shots are POV from the passenger seat of one of the cars, with the steering wheel shown clearly on the left-hand side of the car, normal for left-hand drive. Yet the cars are all driving on the left ("wrong") side of the road, as though they are in the UK. When the cars pull up to the villa, we can clearly see an Italian number plate on the white Mercedes, so we know the scene is set in Italy (if the amphitheater ruins in the prologue weren't clue enough).

The original 1986 UK Video release on the Apex label (as "Nights Of Terror") had been heavily pre-cut by 10 minutes 6 secs by the distributors before submission and then cut by a further 3 minutes 11 secs by the BBFC, removing nearly all of the gore and reducing the running time to barely 65 mins in length. The 2002 Vipco release (as "The Zombie Dead") saw all of the BBFC cuts waived and the film fully restored to its original version. See more
