  • buried beneath the surface of all the cheap thrills and schlocky production there lies a discourse on France's attempts to confront and come to terms with her resurgent wartime sins.

  • You have to give Rollin credit for trying something new here, but the zombie with a heart of gold angle just seems like an ill-advised detour, zapping any of the horror the film might have otherwise conjured up.

  • It has attracted the attention of film buffs who love certain kinds of bad films.

  • Zombie Lake holds a distinctive position in the annals of execrable movie trash ... Is this enough to transform Zombie Lake from merely bad to so-bad-it's-good? No, but it is so bad that it must be seen to be believed.

  • The make-up wouldn't pass muster at a pre-school Halloween party, the performances are embarrassingly amateur, and dubbing is so bad it's painful.

  • There is at least a small possibility that Zombie Lake is the worst film I have ever seen.

    Aquatic Nazi zombies kill nubile French women who skinny dip in their lake home. That plot may sound impossible to screw up, but this plodding exercise in misplaced exploitation focuses more on the dramatic relationship between one zombie and his illegitimate daughter (!)

    During world war II a group of villagers ambushed and defeated a ban of german soldiers and ended up throwing there bodies in a nearby like now of course as with any zombie movie they have returned to prey on the unsuspecting female swimmers and no one knows how to stop them except maybe one little girl that holds a link to one of the nazi's. Thats the plot of this one very cheesy movie and its two parts cheesy bad one part cheesy good with horrible FX's some might like it others wont i found this just ok and laughable to not turn off.

    1. Gratuitous nudity does not a good horror film make. 2. A rubbish plot involving a girl realising that one of the zombies is her father and earning his trust does not a good horror film make. 3. Green face paint and sellotape does not a good zombie make. 4. If Sam Raimi can make Evil Dead on a budget of $7.89, then nobody else has any excuse for crappiness just because they have a low budget. 5. This film does not a good horror - or any other type of genre film - make
