Hammer films, especially horror, are hit or miss (mostly miss). Plague of the Zombies is a rare exception. This is a typical pre-Romero zombie film in which the plot revolves around an evil character who use black magic you put others until their thrall. In this instance, the warlock is obvious instantly. What makes this film so great is the fantastic make-up on the zombies, the inspired voodoo aesthetics, and the well-paced mystery plot. An all-around fun romp.
