After a chemical leak at the Hope Centre in Papua New Guinea (an organization devoted to feeding underdeveloped countries) turns its staff into flesh-eating zombies, a four-man commando squad led by Mike London are sent to investigate. They run into a TV news crew led by celebrity reporter Lia, who are after the same story, but when they discover that the entire country has been overrun by zombies, what are the chances of them getting the message across? Unlike most zombie films, this actually tries to make a serious point - that if we don't feed the Third World, they'll come and feed on us!

(at around 42 mins) During the Mask Ceremony scene, the masked celebrant (medicine man or shaman) takes off his mask and hands it to Lia. This is not possible in a mask ceremony. In a traditional African, Native American or South Asian mask ceremony, a holy man/shaman who takes off his mask during a ceremony is no longer considered the man he was before he put on the mask. It is not possible that any tribal shaman would take off his mask in the middle of a mask ceremony, let alone hand it to an obvious stranger. See more

Vestron Home Video's release, around 1985, of the picture, under the title Night Of The Zombies, was the same print used by Creature Features for home video tape in 1996. Creature Features added a brief card to the tail end of the closing credits for its copyright. This exact same print, even including the Creature Features copyright card, was used by Cydonia Pictures for its Night Of The Zombies DVD release in 2002. The same year, Anchor Bay Entertainment, released a cleaned up DVD under the title Hell Of The Living Dead. All of these Night Of The Zombies versions are identical, save for the inserted Creature Features copyright card. The film print is the infamous one known for being too dark, due to numerous copies being made, and, thus nearly impossible to tell a lot of what is going on in the film. See more
