Vengeance of the Zombies (1973)
84 min.
Directed by León Klimovsky.
With Paul Naschy, Rommy, Mirta Miller, María Kosti, Aurora de Alba, Pierre Besari, Antonio Pica.
We've got a special place in our hearts for the works of director Klimovsky - not to mention star Paul Naschy - so it shouldn't come as a surprise that we enjoyed this early '70s Spanish horror.

A masked stranger, well schooled in the ways of voodoo, is resurrecting the dead from certain English families...then sending the resuscitated zombies out on missions of murderous revenge!

Scotland Yard is understandably baffled; could the mysterious spiritualist Krishna (Naschy) hold some piece to the bloody puzzle?

This 1973 horror boasts the following: no less than three performances from Naschy (as the well meaning fakir, as his evil brother, and in an effective nightmare sequence, as the devil himself!), several gory neck slashings (one self inflicted!), a gaggle of green faced undead gals, and Mr. Waldemar himself giving you all he's got.

Also known as Walk of the Dead.

Spanish: La Rebelión de las muertas.
