Andre Morell is superb in fascinating Hammer entry.,
This review is from: The Plague of The Zombies [DVD]  (DVD)
Anyone that digs zombie movies of the past decade should probably stay well clear of this horror classic. Back in the 60s, we got plots that made more sense and charcater building, not to mention great acting. So you won't find tons of gore here or cardboard cut out actors that act as if a zombie outbreak is as normal as boiling the kettle.
Andre Morell is superb throughout the film and there is a devilish atmopshere that never lets up. The film also inspired someone called George A Romero and thus 2 years after this movie, Romero the Godfather of the zombie movie gave us Night of the Living Dead.
Hammer did better movies that Plague, and there have been better zombie movies, but Plague is a decent horror, backed up by a great script and superior acting.
