Two travelers, George (Ray Lovelock) and Edna (Christine Galbo), investigate an experimental machine that may be bringing the dead back to life!
'This is one of my favourite zombie films of them all; a genuinely chilling UK set horror...' Director Edgar Wright (Last Night in Soho, Shaun of the Dead, The World's End)
A strange twist of fate brings two young travelers, George (Ray Lovelock, The Cassandra Crossing) and Edna (Christine Galbo, The House That Screamed), to a small town where an experimental agricultural machine may be bringing the dead back to life! As zombies infest the area and attack the living, a bullheaded detective (Academy AwardÂ® nominee Arthur Kennedy, Peyton Place) thinks the couple are Satanists responsible for the local killings. George and Edna have to fight for their lives, and prove their innocence, as they try and stop the impending zombie apocalypse!
