Young workers are dying because of a mysterious epidemic in a little village in Cornwall. Doctor Thompson is helpless and asks professor James Forbes for help. The professor and his daughter Sylvia travel to Thomson. Terrible things happen soon, beyond imagination or reality. Dead people are seen near an old, unused mine. Late people seem to live suddenly. Professor Forbes presumes that black magic is involved and someone has extraordinary power. He doesn't know how close he is: the dead become alive because of a magic voodoo-ritual, and so they must serve their master as mindless zombies...Written by

Before allowing the film to be released, the B.B.F.C instructed "Hammer" to trim one or two scenes. Amongst them, the scene where Andre Morell decapitates the zombie in the graveyard with a shovel had to be reduced from showing four blows with the weapon to just the one. See more »
Thought the film is set in the 19th century, during the struggle by the fireplace at around the 1:20:30 mark, a modern fire extinguisher can be clearly seen attached to the wall. See more »
This is one of the few good horror movies about zombies that I've ever seen. It has wonderful acting, mystery, intrigue, a great plot, and, of course, scary zombies. I wish modern horror movie makers would create more movies in the vein of this 1966 classic, rather than continually pumping out the tripe that we see so much of today. This film is a respectable addition to any horror lover's personal movie collection.
