Revolt of the Zombies Reviews
1) I think that the eyes of Bela Lugosi were recycled in this movie from "White Zombie"
2) Its campy
Well thats all the good I see in this terrible movie, its probably so bad its good cause I did laugh I lot.
A team of archaeologists is in Cambodia during WWI. They captured a local priest who is the last man alive who knows the secret of making zombies, a labor force previously tapped to construct the temple complex at Angkor through the auspices of the three-eyed god Siva. As the French general proclaims loudly, however, "This secret could be a threat to the entire white race!" The priest ends up and and a nerdy archeologist instead rediscovers the secret, using it to get revenge against the woman who scorns him and the other members of the expedition when he gets fired. Before you know it (because it's not shown how it happens in the movie), the nerdy archeologist has assembled an army of Cambodian zombies and has everyone else under his control. He's about to conquer the world... but, well, this was made in the 1930's and, as we all know, love conquered all up to about 1939.
The zombies here are just people who've been hypnotized. Nothing even vaguely scary ever happens, and there's never a zombie revolt. There's a reason that you've never heard of this flick! Watch it for the examples of early 20th century racism and sexism with which it is laced, but not so much for horror entertainment.
