*MINOR SPOILERS THROUGHOUT* If ever there was an underrated masterpiece, this is it! This gem is one of my top 20 favorite films of all time, and is truly deserving of any praise it garners. It is very atmospheric and eerie as all hell. The zombies are bizarre suckers who take photos of their victims while they are being mutilated, and I have to say that the needle in the eye death disturbed me a little for some reason. Maybe its how the guy is watching in horror as he's about get it. The town of Potter's Bluff is one of the bleakest and downright creepiest settings in any film I've seen! The film just oozes with atmosphere, and gives off a very grim vibe. James Farentino and Jack Albertson (in his final role) both give stunning performances and you can't help but be drawn in because the characterizations are very sympathetic as well as mysterious. Dobbs is a very convincing lunatic, and Jack Albertson plays him to perfection. The film's outstanding ending also caught me off gaurd, and it was really spectacular. Its an ending that really sticks with you. The zombies are easily the most frightening zombies I've seen in any film! There's just something freaky as hell about them, just the way they act or something. And look for Robert Englund in a pre-Freddy role as one of these eerie undead. I treasure this film greatly, and it is extremely underrated! I can't wait for BU's upcoming DVD of this classic! Are there any other fans of this underappreciated gem here?
