Movie I.D. required please...

Post by kobold » 15 Oct 2002 19:30

A friend was telling me the other night that he remembers seeing a war movie in which french partisans kill some german soldiers, and later the germans return as zombies?
He cannot remember the title or cast.

Does anyone else remember this movie?
I do not recall seeing this one?

I haven't seen that one either, but it's title is "Zombie Lake", AKA "Lake Of The Living Dead"; Original Titles "El Lago de los Muertes Vivientes"/"Lac des Morts Vivants". It's a Spanish/French co-production from 1980. Every review I've read describes it as terribly bad movie.
Speaking of Nazi Zombies: Have you ever seen a film called "Shock Waves"? It's got Waffen-SS-Zombie-Super-Soldiers! (But it's not too great either.)

Ah zombie movies................my first love.

Alas "Zombies lake" is not one of the better ones, its not even one of the better bad ones! It looks like the was about £6 spent on the makeup, which they also forgot to put on the hands of the 'zombies', so we just just have green faced 'zombies' to threaten the scantly clad ladies. The rest of the budget was spent down the pub, by the looks of the shakey camera work.

thanks for that - my friend mentioned that he was very scared by it as a kid when his older sister made him watch it hehe.
the title was bugging him for years.
