The Plague of the Zombies

Filmed at Ireland's Bray Studios, The Plague of the Zombies is a well-made horror programmer about strange happenings a century ago in a small town on the moors. Peter Bryan is credited with the script which brings Andre Morell, a distinguished medic professor, and daughter Diane Clare to the boondocks town where former pupil Brook Williams isn't having much luck in his new practice. A dozen people have died mysteriously, and local squire John Carson won't permit autopsies. Jacqueline Pearce, Williams' wife, isn't looking too good, either.

The formula scripting involves about 55 minutes of seeding with various unexplained incidents, followed by an explanation of the diabolical forces involved. Then in the last 35 minutes, the demons are foiled.
