Zombie Lake

22 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Jean Rollin is a bit of a curiosity amongst the European filmmaking community, at least to me.  His films were never very good, but they garnered enough of a cult following, particularly in his native homeland, so that he could continue to make more of them.  However, Zombie Lake is considered by many to be his worst film, including Rollin himself before his death in 2010. One thing’s for sure about his work: he had a keen eye when it came to nudity.

  • Excerpt: Directed by Jean Rollin (under the pseudonym J.A.

The Blu-ray arrives with a surprisingly good audio and video presentation, considering the film's low-budget origins and quality.

  • Summary: On February 26th, Kino-Lorber and Redemption Films—as part of their ongoing distribution partnership—are releasing two of the shabbiest low-budget zombie films to have ever shambled into the cinema, 1981's Zombie Lake and 1982's Oasis of the Zombies . Besides a few minor differences in plot and setting, they're essentially the same movie, both involving cursed locales, flashbacks to World War II, illegitimate children fathered by soldiers, and Nazi zombies that rise from...
