An obnoxious theatre director takes his acting troupe to an abandoned island to perform a pseudo-satanic ritual. But what the gang first believe to be all fun and games soon turns to terror when the dead start rising from their graves. The debut horror film from director Bob Clark (Black Christmas, Deathdream) is a zombie movie like no other, notable for its dramatic tonal shifts and startling moments of surrealism.
