I like a good zombie flick but...



1957

Positively scary is not how anyone on Earth could describe this zombie flick. This is low-budget cheapo B-movie making at some of its cheesiest.

A crew of treasure hunters arrives on the African coast to hunt down some diamonds. The loot is in a sunken ship that went down decades before and is being protected by the crew of that ship. The diamonds were actually stolen from a tribe on the mainland and now the thieves are zombies. Not seemingly interested in wandering aimlessly killing humans for food, nope, none of that, these zombies are only protecting the diamonds from anyone who comes to find them. The team hoping to recover the diamonds learns of the danger but, of course, proceeds anyway and that just results in the demise of most of them.

I can't say this is one of the worst movies ever. It held my interest and moved along at a decent pace. It's just so cheesy and lacks anything substantial enough to make it worth watching.
