The Plague of the Zombies

From 1966, this is a rare zombie offering from Hammer Studios.  Animated by voodoo, the dead are used as slave labor in a Cornish tin mine.  Andre Morell gives a strong performance as the indomitable doctor who matches wits with sinister zombie master John Carson.  The film is atmospheric but the zombies are slightly boring, except for one memorable sequence in which undead hands begin to sprout from the grave like pale flowers.
