When a village in Corenwall is struck by mysterious deaths aplenty, the local doctor Peter Thompson (Brook Williams) calls in his mentor at the university Sir James (Andre Morrell), who, upon arriving with daughter Sylvia (Diane Clare), soon notices not everything is quite alright, this only underlined by the fact that the region's squire, Hamilton (John Carson), expressly forbids any of the dead bodies to undergo an autopsy. & whille Sir James decides to dig up the bodies on his own, Peter's wife Julia (Jacqueline Pearce) has fallen under a spell laid upon her by Hamilton & is drawn to his castle. Sylvia, who follows her, is abducted by Hamilton's men & only saved by him in the nick of time, & while walking home sees a zombie dropping Julia's corpse right in front of her. Sir James & Peter meanwhile encounter some shocks all of their own at the cemetery, first being almost imprisoned by 2 policemen (Michael Ripper, Dennis Chinnery), then discovering the graves are empty. The next day, after Julia has been buried & the men stand guard at the cemetery (& soon have to decapitate Julia when she awakes as a zombie), Hamilton drops by Sylvia's & puts some hoodoo on her. But soon all the parts of the mystery fall into the right places & Sir James goes to confront Hamilton (who has learned voodoo during his stay on Haiti) with all the facts & his founded suspicions. Hamilton throws him out, but this is just as well, since Sir James took the precaution of leaving a window open in order to reenter the mansion again at will - which he does. Anyway, when fighting one of Hamilton's minion, he sets the place on fire & seems to be locked in, while Sylvia is magically drawn to the mansion. However, in the end, partly thanks to Peter, both Sir James & Sylvia are saved while Hamilton is burnt with his zombies in the mine he had them work in.

 

Very atmospheric & spooky zombie movie, which did in part set the tone for many more visceral zombie-features to come (especially the dream-sequence on the graveyard with all the zombies emerging from their graves, has been copied countless times), but this one also adds a dimension of suspense & mystery to the proceedings quite nicely.
