It's a shame that this film does not get much attention, and it's all but disappeared now. Which is a pity because if you allow yourself to go with the very leisurely pace, it's actually an effective little story. Susan Hampshire plays a woman who suffers such profound grief at the death of her lover that she somehow manages to bring him back from the dead. She doesn't do it intentionally though, and is shocked and bewildered by his seemingly miraculous return. Unfortunately, although he can move about he's still dead in every other respect, so things can only go downhill for poor Susan. --www.imdb.com
I enjoyed this film, it's sort of the horror film of Harlequin Romance. A passionate love story which ends in tragic death begins again when the dead man's zombified body returned to the grieving lover. Initially she is overjoyed, but he's not quite himself anymore, and his body continues to rot(which makes their sex life rather gross). Attractively shot with some lovely scenic locations... --www.imdb.com
