King of the Zombies Reviews

    Cheap B-movie with better than average quips & scenarios as it pokes a bit of fun at zombies, Nazies, racial slurs, and obtuse situations; which were all staple plot devices in late 1930's early 40's American cinema. The early SNL cast should have a reunion remaking this film.

    Not the greatest of zombies film, but it's original.

    What's not to love in this movie! Great comedy by Mantan Moreland, and reaalitivoey good acting all around. This movie was awesome. I just wish the camera angles were better, and that we got to of seen more of the island. The story kept you interested all the way through. Never a dull moment. Also this movie is interesting to watch because of the way zombies were protracted back then. Instead of zombies coming from a virus like they do today back in 1941 it was all voodoo which is cool to see.

    Low budget and low brow Monogram horror-comedy in which Mantan Moreland steals the show and gets all the best lines in an otherwise stiff, that is zombiefied, script.

    Using WW2 and Black comedians for a thrill in a supposedly zombie film, does not work!

    Politically incorrect, but interesting and sometimes very funny horror/comedy. While it has plenty of black racial stereotypes, surprisingly Mantan Moreland is the true star of the picture and the sanest person in the whole cast.

    Three men crash land their plane on a Caribbean island where a doctor with a German accent is secretly creating a mini-army of "sombies." As the cowardly black butler, Mantan Moreland steals the show ("zombies is dead folks what's too lazy to lay down"); his role is stereotypical minstrel show stuff, but his delivery is killer, and he's the only living thing in the otherwise brain-dead movie.
