When the whole family of Elvire (Romy) is killed, and by her zombified cousin too, the only man who can help her get over this is her guru Krishna (Paul Naschy) - or at least that's what she thinks ...

Soon, she moves into Krishna's estate in the country, and before long Krishna and Elvire really fall for each other ... but that's much to the dismay of Kala (Mirta Miller), Krishna's assistant who's of course also in love with him, and she promises Elvire bitter revenge - but that's not all, soon enough Elvire starts having nightmares about the Satan (also Paul Naschy) and starts bumping into zombies or simply dead people on a regular basis. Eventually it comes out that Krishna's evil brother Kantaka (Naschy yet again), a voodoo high priest, wants his revenge on Elvire and her family because they almost burned him to death almost 20 years ago - and Katanka uses his own brother, the holier-than-thou Krishna, as his voodoo medium ...

Meanwhile, Elvire's friend Doc Lawrence (Victor Barrera) wants to pay her a visit at Krishna's place, to take her away with him, but he's sidetracked by Elsie (María Kosty), a lovely blonde who he soon becomes romantically involved with, seemingly forgetting all about Elvire ...

Eventually, Katanka has both Elvire and Kala chained up, and according to his own claims, he will become invincible once his entranced brother kills them both. Krishna kills Kala, but when he wants to kill Elvire too, his real self comes to the fore and he tries to kill Katanka instead, but is killed by Katanka's zombies. When Katanka prepares to kill Elvire himself though ... he is killed by Elsie, who is not only a lovely blonde, but also a voodoo practitioner who was sent after JKatanka to make sure he doesn't abuse the power of voodoo. With Katanka, his zombies also die, but the danger isn't over yet for Elvire, because now Elsie wants to kill her as a founding stone for her empire of voodoo - but in virtually the last moment, whe is shot dead by the police, which Lawrence has brought after all, finally remembering what he came to the country for.

 

This film can be neatly summed up in one word: Eurotrash.

Vengeance of the Zombies was made on a (too) low budget, based on a pulpy script that could have used quite a bit of fine-tuning, and was obviously rushed through production, with actors that often weren't really up to their roles. That said, if you can look beneath the film's shortcomings, Vengeance of the Zombies isn't all bad, it has this certain Southern European feel to it that missing from the more impersonal horror cheapos from the USA, and León Klimovsky is one of the better B-movie directors of his time (even if criminally low budgets prevented him from coming into his own most of the time. And then there's the trashy script that's so wonderfully full of all sorts of pulp mainstays, the bad but wonderful acting, the below-par zombie make-up ... simply put a film you'll have to love despite the fact that you hate it ...
