Revolt of the Zombies ★★

Director Victor Halperin directed White Zombie, one of the more underrated films from the early 30s horror boom. Revolt of the Zombies made independently during the short period major studios complete dropped horror is connected to the earlier film by heavy use of inserts of Bela Lugosi's eyes, but lacks the early film focus and suggestive images. There's far too much mad scientist and easy exoticits tropes and young Dean Jagger is terrible in the main role. The film is better when its zombies heavy an inrimation of fascism, but more interested in a non-starter romantic plot.
