Zombie Lake (1981)

Written by Julian Esteban and Jesus Franco. Directed by Jean Rollin and Julian de Laserna. Starring Howard Vernon, Pierre-Marie Escourrou and Anouchka.

Plot: In a small village, somewhere in France, German soldiers, killed and thrown into the lake by the Resistance during WW II, come back.

1360415050_7The opening is nothing if not memorable… It is five solid minutes of one girl swimming naked with music playing, its artsy meets soft core porn. There is a volleyball scene as well that looks like a pornographic double mint commercial. There is also a sex scene later but it is completely hilarious, not erotic.

The special effects are terrible, their skin is green but it rubs and falls off, but the hair is still nice and blonde. I don’t know who’s idea it was to get them wet with the makeup job they did but it looks awful!

The acting is atrocious, and it has zero innovation, no one to root for except a little girl and did not follow a set of rules. The continuity takes a huge hit because they say it is ten years later but it was WWII and the movie takes place in 1981…sooo we don’t know what was up.

There is a touching story about a girl and her zombie dad but they are more like vampires than zombies, o and guns don’t affect them but knives seem to.

All in all a bad movie, but i recommend watching it if nothing else than to laugh and say “me and my friends could do better”. Tara gave it a 26/100 and I liked it slightly more with a 30/100

1. If I could manage it, I'd love to learn a new language. 2. My favorite piece of clothing is my Philadelphia Eagles tee shirt. 3. The fictional place I'd most like to go to is the Starship Voyager so I could explore space. 4. I once spent exactly 6 hours (no more, no less) working at a Burger King. 5. If making people laugh were a sport, I'd win the gold every time. 6. My favorite drink is Yoo-Hoo. 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is Wonder. I loved the book, too. 8. My favorite bands are the Beach Boys and The Monkees. I've even seen The Monkees in concert. 9. Danny Trejo is my idol. He's overcome so much and he's super nice in person. 10. The most heartwarming thing I've ever seen is this old couple in the doctor's office. They were poking each other playfully and their love just filled the room.
