I had heard about this one for awhile and was really impressed with the level of tension used between the three characters. It had me riveted through the whole thing, but the end was kind of disappointing. I would still recommend this one though.
I love the Hammer horror movies. This was one of their last ones to be put out in 1974. Peter Cushing is always awesome as Dr. Frankenstein. The monster that he creates is played by David Prowse, who will go on to play Darth Vader in Star Wars. This one is not as good as Curse of Frankenstein but it has it's moments and it has a such a sitcom type ending.
I guess it's a matter of taste, but I liked the movie. That's because I am already familiar with the Troma movies and have already accepted that it will be really stupid. It's a ridiculous movie, but it's so over the top that its funny. That's the point. I guess it's a love or hate kind of thing.
I've always given Umberto Lenzi's films a chance for some reason, but to this day, I have yet to see a movie that I actually liked. This one is one of the worst ones. Terrible acting, terrible dialogue and delivery and it seems to rely heavily on locations like a lot of the Italian movies of the 1980s. The storyline is really kind of choppy and thrown together and the zombies look bad.
I was expecting a lot more from the writer of The Last Emperor. The dialogue and the delivery of the dialogue is terrible. The twist in the middle of the movie just didn't make sense to me and it seemed pretentious. Like it thought it was much more clever than it actually was.
