Pretty bad, but not even close to Bob Clark's worst. This guy directed both "Baby Geniuses," don't forget.
| Original Score: 2/5

On any absolute scale of movie ratings, it should score pretty low. However, there is no accounting for the amount of fun one can have with it.

Clark's first film is memorable only for its catchy title.

The performances are on the amateurish side and the dialogue whiplashes between amusing quips and (mostly) leaden chitchat. But the final act, a ripoff of Night of the Living Dead, is effectively staged and showcases impressively monstrous makeup designs.

Clark accordingly avails himself of the best abysmal wisecracks, offhand surrealism, and decomposing mise-en-scène available

Like watching a George Romero rip-off, directed by Ed Wood, with a script scribbled by Joe Orton while he was ripped to the tits on poppers.
Clint Morris

One of the best horror movies of the 70's!
| Original Score: 3/5

On a technical level, at least, it's great fun.

Truly weird, sometimes effective horror cheapie.
