Zombie Causes Paralysis

"The scary movie idiot award goes to--drumroll please... SUSAN!"

"Susan, played by Auretta Gay, found herself totally immobile with fear, wonder, or both as a corpse took its ever-lovin' time to unearth himself and proceed to take a man-sized bite out of Susan's neck. She could've screamed, ran, or any number of things at any time during the glacially slow attack by the zombie, yet she did nothing. For that, Susan is the scary movie idiot."

The zombie outbreak in this movie started on the fictional Caribbean Island of Matule (sp?). The partially mad scientist Dr. Menard (Richard Johnson) is studying this odd phenomenon of the dead being reanimated. I say partially mad because who in their right mind wants to be trapped on an island studying the living dead even if you think you have it under control? The reanimation is supposedly rooted in voodoo yet Dr. Menard continues to search for a scientific explanation.

The make-up and special effects were great. There was even a close-up shot of a woman having her eye impaled by a shard of wood. That's some good effects for 1979. There was some sickeningly nice blood and gore, but the movie dragged at times. It was a solid zombie movie even if I'm not a fan of the voodoo aspect.

The Zombies were the smartest things on the island.

I got to watch this for free, which is the best way to see it. It started out really slow and I was about to switch it off until the scuba diving scene. And I'm not talking about the shark. The zombies were what I always thought zombies should be. Nasty, rotting, maggots and all that. Not like the ones you see in the movies nowadays. It seems like everybody that got bit or eaten or killed by zombies in this movie did their best to make sure it happened. And then the guys with the guns kept shooting the zombies in the body, you would think they would figure out head shots. It's low budget, and bad acting, and for 1979 it's a pretty good zombie movie
