Right after professor Ayres (Renato Barbieri) has awakened the dead, & fallen victim to them (yes, they are maneaters), George (Roberto Caporali) & Evelyn (Mariangela Giordano) with their hauntingly ugly & oedipally fixated son Michael (Peter Bark) decide to pay their holiday mansion, where Ayres made his weird experiments, a visit with a handflul of friends, city dwellers all of them. & while they still enjoy the rural surroundings & have some sex in between, little do they know the zombies are already closing in on them, until the dead start to devour the living.

& while our soon badly decimated cast tries to barricade themselves in the mansion - with little success, since these zombies always find a way to get in -, hideous Michael, untouched by the fact that his father was eaten up a short while ago,  tries to get his mother to breastfeed him, even though he is definitely past this age (he's somewhere in his teens !). When she refuses, he runs off, only to be killed off & partially eaten by Leslie (Antonella Antinori) one of the houseguests who was killed earlier. When Evelyn discovers this, she furiously beats Leslie's head in - the only way to kill the zombies, of course.

Soon, the last 4 survivors - apart from Evelyn there's Janet (Karin Weil), James (Simone Mattioli) & Mark (Gian Luigi Chrizzi) - decide to give up the mansion (just as well, as they were unable to hold it anyway) & instead take refuge in a nearby monastery - where they have to find out all the monks are already turned into zombies, & James seems to have been on their menu.

The remaining trio flees to a nearby pottery, where, with the other zombies, creepy undead Michael shows up again. Inexplicably Evelyn - having him seen dead already - fails to come to the conclusion tht he might be of the undead race now & happily invites him to some breastfeeding, totally unaware that breastfeeding to a zombie might have a raerth different meaning (to take a bite rather than suck the milk, that is - it's a hilarious scene anyways).

After Evelyn is offed, all hell really breaks loose for our last 2 survivors, as ...

The credits start to roll, sorry folks, it ends just there.

 

One of the most straightforward zombie-movies ever, as it takes little diversions from telling its main story - humans awake zombies, zombies eat humans - which is both good and bad.

Good, because no time is wasted with stupid & boring subplots (not that subplots are basically stupid & boring, but if you have watched a few Italian zombie movies you will know what I mean), except for maybe the story about oedipal Michael, which is left at a few hints though.

But it is also bad, because this movie has virtually no plottwists, no real tension or suspense, leaving you really with a skeleton of a story, that is filled with macabre gore-effects & even slightly creative zombie masks, however neither are terribly convincing.

Still, as pure trash, the movie tends to be entertaining.
