Critic Reviews for Revolt of the Zombies
The story is crude and inexplicable, the acting stagey, the tone completely gaudy and not even a tiny bit horrifying.
A barely-there soap opera with superstitious underpinnings thrown in for good measure.
Revolting is right.
Supposed sequel to White Zombie. Just plain dreadful. And dull.
Audience Reviews for Revolt of the Zombies
First of all this movie was badly made, so the look and feel is very cheap/low budget, and not in a good way. The story itself has been done before, for example in the movie White Zombie, which I would recommend seeing instead of this movie. Plus, this movie forgets that zombies are corpses, not just people who are being mind-controlled. This movie isn't worth the time.
An archeologist whose been scorned by a woman tries to find the ancient secret of creating "zombies" (actually, creating slaves through a kind of chemical hypnosis) in Angkor Wat. No real suspense, atmosphere, or zombies; it's hard to believe the same director who made the brilliant WHITE ZOMBIE followed it up with this clunker.
Boring. Not suspenseful or scary at all. The zombies are not recognizable as zombies by today's standards (more mass voodoo mind-control). The frights audiences of the time might have received was probably more a racist thing.
