Another Long Lost Gem on DVD

"Shriek Show Video has come up with a real rare flick this time. It is Barry Mahon's long lost gem "Blood Of The Zombie" aka "The Dead One."
A very interesting story about a woman who brings back to life a rotting zombie to do her bidding. The print quality is very good and the color is vibrant in spots. It also co-stars Linda Ormand, wife of filmmaker Ron Ormond who gave the world such treats as Mesa Of Lost Women and Monster & The Stripper. Nice DVD release and I hope Shriek Show finds more rare gems like this. Highly Recommended for horror fans!!"

"Here we have Shriek distributors giving us a long lost bayoo classic. Is the movie good? Hell no. Is it fun to watch? Hell yes! The plot has more holes than swiss cheeeze, but that's the fun of these beauties. The story's about a guy who inherits a plantation that his voodoo loving cousin is presently living on, and he, his new bride, and the stranded belly dancing mistress they pick up find out quick that dear ol' couz isn't about to give up the property easily. She has her dead brother (a tuxedo wearing, long-haired zombie)waiting to do the deed that'll get rid of these pesky invaders. As a bonus, you also get the ultra bad (& I mean BAD) feature lenght "Voodoo Swamp" included in this package that has to be one the worst made movies I've seen yet! This is classic "bad-is-good". If the feature plot had holes in it, then this was machine gunned! No opening or end credits; can you believe that! In the movie, when they move to the next scene, you'll still see a faded print of the last scene for a few seconds! Believe it or not, this isn't even distracting. It's almost drug inducing. Absolutely hilarious stuff. Set in the Louisiana swamps, this is about a lovely lass who hires a hero boy P.I. to find her missing sister. He traces her to a place called "slave island", or something like that, and following this story is a priceless experience. The funny thing is that I watched it to the end. Being a veteran of bad movies, & B-flicks, I can't say that about every film I've watched. No spoilers here, you'll have to get this to view it yourself. Don't be put off by negative reviews. If you're into great 60's schlock, then these atmospheric gems will be your cup tea leaves. Get it while you can."
One of the worst movies I have ever seen

"Wow. This movie really sucks. The plot is pointless and kind if hard to follow. I don't know why this is classified as a horror movie. The run time is an hour and a half and for about an hour and 15 mins all you watch is the couple talking. VERY SCARY!
Yes the movie was made in 1961 so the color is horrible. The audio is also not too pleasant. And not to bad mouth Shriek Show because they usually do a bang up job. The only time you see the zombie is during the last fifteen mins and even then nothing much more happens. And just so you know there is no blood or anything in this movie.
I'm just glad I only spent ten bucks on this."
A lot of fun, especially when viewed in a group

"My family owned Kenilworth Plantation and we were just about to move in when the movie was filmed there around 1960. We watched the filming from the porch.The mosquitoes practically ate us up. The plot has to do with the wicked sister wanting to get control of Kenilworth. The movie was only shown in St. Bernard Parish where it was filmed and really bombed. Now it is being revived and is good for laughs.It was called The Dead One then. I tried to give it more than one star but couldn't get the rating to work. I'd give it a 4 for comedy although it wasn't made to be funny."
