Goofs

At the end, when the car is on fire and the money is "blowing away", you can tell the money is actually being dropped on the burning car and the scene is being shown in reverse - watch the fire and smoke go back *into* the car instead of blowing *away* from it. See more »

Alternate Versions

The 1995 UK Redemption video (released as "Revenge Of The Living Dead Girls") was cut by almost 3 minutes by the BBFC with heavy edits to scenes of gore and sexual violence including a woman's eye being gouged with a high heeled shoe, a man's penis being bitten off by a female zombie and the stabbing of a woman's vagina with a sword.

France of the Dead!
26 March 2006 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

The French and movies about the living dead don't really seem to match together very well, do they? Remember "Zombie Lake"? Well, "Revenge of the Living Dead Girls" is almost as awful as that one, only it wasn't so fortunate to hoard a gigantic cult status and became pretty much forgotten over the years. Nevertheless, this is entertaining bad cinema in case all you're looking for is no-budget exploitation, sleaze and a handful of repulsive gore sequences. The film opens like standard zombie guff, with three recently deceased teenage girls coming back from the dead after toxic waste has been spilled on their tombs. The girls immediately go after the management of the local dairy factory since poisoned milk caused their deaths to begin with. Or at least so it seems, because the whole factory hangs together by fraud, conspiracies, scandals and bribery. There's a fairly ingenious plot-twist near the end but, until then, all we get to see is terrible acting, pointless red herrings and completely hilarious dialogues ("a little bit of necrophilia never hurt anyone"). The gory scenes, albeit amateurish, are effectively nauseating and offensive! Some woman gets her eyes poked out by high heels, another one poor soul gets a sword inserted in her vagina and THE most stomach-turning moment involves a totally random but incredibly bloody miscarriage in the shower. That was just too much! Proceed at your own risk...
