A woman who's inherited a Louisiana bayou hotel begins to restore the property, but she faces an ever increasing army of antagonists after some fatally injured workmen refuse to stay dead. A swaggering doctor finds an explanation for her plight in a musty tomb, but no matter how many zombies he encounters, he never seems to figure out the bullet-to-the-brain method codified by George Romero. It's hard to say whether the continuity errors in this 1981 movie—which is mainly about novelty in the art of gore effects—are deliberate or the result of inattentive scripting. The narrative is frequently interrupted by elegantly repellent set pieces, but the fine line between camp and earnest repugnance is crossed too many times. Lucio Fulci directed.
