The Mad Scientist and the Zombie Girls

The master of fright, Bela Lugosi, is a mad scientist who wants to return his long dead zombie wife to life, using the life-essences of several young, beautiful girls. John Carradine is his assistant and chief kidnapper of beautiful young girls.

With his room full of flashing lights, skulls, candles and witches' cloaks, he seems to have found the power over death with a combination of voodoo, science and hypnotism.

The story begins in the office of a Hollywood movie producer who reads a news item about a pretty girl gone missing. He wants a new horror movie from his best screenwriter and suggests that the young man follow up on this story and see if there might be an angle for a horror movie. The young screenwriter refuses, reminding the producer that he is on his way to a small country village to be married to his sweetheart.

What the young fellow doesn’t know is that his sweetheart lives in the area where the beautiful young ladies are vanishing, and soon he will be in the middle of disappearing girls, mystic hypnotism and Voodoo ceremonies, with both his fiancé and her Bridesmaid under the evil doctor’s control.

Before I finish, let me tell you the ending . . . . Well, almost the ending.

When I was much younger I vividly remember one of the most amazing scenes that I ever saw in a movie. I was incredulous with surprise and I thought that this must be the very first time anything like this has ever happened on the big screen.

It was a scene where Indian Jones was battling a fellow with a giant curved sword, and as the bad guy swung his sword menacingly and lurched towards him, Indiana Jones simply pulled out a gun and shot the fellow where he stood! I was so surprised that the scene has remained a vivid memory all these many years later. I would never have believed that one day I would see essentially the same scene in a movie from 1944.

In this story Bela Lugosi is at his best as a mesmerizing Voodoo master hypnotizing everyone who came near, and at the end of the story, when the mad doctor is interrupted by the two country cops, the doctor picks up a huge sword and lunges towards the cops . . . .

The old, white haired Sheriff doesn’t even blink when he pulls the trigger on his gun and kills the evil doctor.

But wait, if you think I spoiled the ending for you, think again, because the best is yet to come, unbelievably in the last sentence of the dialogue. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
