|This blaxploitation zombie effort is kinda fun!
After her boyfriend Langston is murdered by a group of hoods wanting to steal his business, curvy Diana 'Sugar' Hill (Bey) visits a local witch woman (Cully, Mother Jefferson from TV's The Jeffersons) to exact some supernatural revenge.
Soon, Diana is in firm command of a black posse of walking dead...and they're willing and able to kill any their master deems!
Highlighted by a cool sequence with the zombie stiffs rising from their earthen tombs (ala Fulci, in a way) and some decent kills (a beheading, death by rabid pigs, a forced suicide).
Charming Bey makes for a sassy leading lady (great line: 'Hey, whitey!') and Colley is playfully spunky as the smilin' voodoo lord Samedi.
Best scene: the horrible 'buried alive with snakes' sequence.
Robert Quarry from 1970's Count Yorga is onhand as a villainous heavy.
Also known as The Zombies of Sugar Hill.
