Was going to slam Revolt of the Zombies for cribbing so much from this until I discovered they had the same director (talk about a career decline). Anyway, this film is genuinely well made and really quite effective, plus Lugosi isn't as over-the-top as usual. Victor Halperin's slim filmography is that of a hack but at least he made one meaningful contribution to the horror genre!
Too bad this is boring most of the time (at under 70 minutes!). But you do want to see cinema's first zombies, don't you?
The first zombie film features an Haitian setting, voodoo, Bela Lugosi, a creepy atmosphere & nice camera tricks. 5/10.
