Night of the Zombies

Night of the Zombies ★★★½

There are some really cool ideas and gnarly gore effects in here, but it's all hindered by the completely unnecessary second reel, which pads the feature out with twenty minutes of racist shock stock footage and cheap boring nudity. As with Rats, this is all about the insane finale. Better than I had been expecting, and maybe the ultimate tribute to George Romero -- running Zombi through the Mattei ringer, ripping off whole scenes and stealing music cues, but not coming anywhere close to the original product.
