John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

It leads the viewer inside a fairy tale, not a slaughterhouse; it's expressionistic, not extreme. It affirms the power of the gesture, the shadow, the shudder. In other words: Who needs blood-red cannibalism when you've got a black-and-white Bela Lugosi?

Parallax View

The divinely satanic-looking Bela Lugosi sinks his teeth into his best role since Dracula, a languorous hypnotist and voodoo master who dominates the film with his assured bearing and cruel control.

Creative Loafing

The supporting cast is awful and the low budget dictates a few moments worthy of MST3K ribbing. But the atmosphere of dread is pungent, the use of sound is inspired, and the makeup by the great Jack Pierce and Carl Axcelle is minimal but effective.

Boston Phoenix

Occasional Ed Wood-like campiness notwithstanding, it established a genre that would rise from the grave whenever the economic state of the cinema age might summon it.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Shines through its own failings; but how much better it would be if it didn't have to, if this minor horror classic were instead an all-time genre masterpiece.

Projection Booth

Through its own ravishing simplicity, the film achieves the near-operatic.

I believe it's the first Hollywood production to feature zombies.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

In the end, though, it's Lugosi's zombie master that pulls it altogether and makes it work.

It's Bela. It's a classic. Unfortunately, it's also a dreadful little flick.
