The King of the Zombies

 

king_zombies2

The King of the Zombies (1941) Monogram Pictures cranked out this concoction of espionage and zombie genres. Dick Purcell, not Dick Powell, plays a pilot who crashes on an island run by Dr. Miklos Sangre, played by Henry Victor, not Bella Lugosi, for whom the part was originally written. Everybody in the cast seems a substitute for somebody better, except for the valet, Mantan Moreland. The true horror is institutional racism that confines this actor to stereotype. If you can ignore that, the movie becomes high kitsch, culminating in a zombie chicken dance with Aztec headdress. “High-de-ho” one chorus line goes.
