Located in Kansas City, "Universal Cryogenics Laboratory" is owned and operated by a person named "Dr. Miller" (Troy Donahue) who is using the promise of cryogenic research to further his own selfish interests by harvesting organs instead. After he has obtained what he wants he has the bodies placed in a cryogenic pod without anybody knowing anything. Unfortunately for him, when a lightning storm knocks out the power and then further electrifies the cryogenic pods, zombies (of a sort) emerge. Now, some would argue that technically these creatures are not "zombies" in the traditional sense of the word. The reasons being that they aren't caused by a virus or created by voodoo. Instead, they are the result of an unusual set of circumstances and as such should be referred to as "animated corpses" similar, in that regard, to "Frankenstein". Regardless of what a person wants to call them they seek out humans and kill them. Now, as far as the picture goes, I enjoyed the performance of Linda Blair (as "Mary Hampton") and Dan Haggerty (as "Sgt. Vince Marlow"). But the plot of the film itself seemed too basic and superficial for either of them to really distinguish themselves. Everything-the action, the suspense and the horror-seemed tepid. And as a result I can only recommend it to "zombie" and/or "animated corpse" enthusiasts. Whichever the case may be.
