NIGHT OF THE GHOULS

year: 1958
director: Ed Wood
cast: Tor Johnson, Criswell, Kenne Duncan, Duke Moore

Follow-up to Ed Wood's ''Plan 9 from Outer Space'' about the walking dead, It opens in a cemetery. Criswell, the ''real'' medium, rises from his coffin to tell us of ''monsters to be despised.'' Dr. Acula (Kenne Duncan) is a phony medium aided by Valda Hansen, a bogus ghost, and big Tor Johnson, wearing rags and horrible scar makeup as Lobo. The doctor swindles people by pretending to contact dead relatives, but then accidentally succeeds in reviving a bunch of corpses that bury him alive! Sat unreleased for 23 years because Wood couldn't pay the lab bill! Followed by ''Sinister Urge'' in 1961 (Wood's last film).
