Night of the Zombies

Night of the Zombies ★★★
1. Elvira Week

Splits the difference between a jungle-set cannibal film and a zombie epidemic flick. Despite the unfortunate racism and cultural insensitivity typical of the genre (the lead character spends a good portion of the film looking like Carol Kane in The Mafu Cage), it manages to stagger into "like" territory by virtue of its excellent gore and that surreal atmosphere unique to Italian genre films. It doesn't quite reach the dizzying heights of, say, Zombie Flesh Eaters or Burial Ground: Nights of Terror but it's enjoyable nonetheless.
