THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED UP ZOMBIES
Produced and Directed by Ray Dennis Steckler
Michael J. Weldon wrote, in The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film:
"The first monster musical!" claimed the ads. At a Long Beach amusement park, Madame Estrella, the gypsy fortuneteller, hypnotizes patrons, throws acid in their faces, and collects the now ugly monsters in her basement. Ortega the hunchback and Carmelita the stripper help. Hero Cash Flagg (the director) visits the gypsy and is turned into a zombie in a hooded sweatshirt! The monsters break loose during an incredible dance number and kill everyone in sight until the police arrive. Hear "The Mixed Up Zombie Stomp"! See the "1001 weirdest scenes ever!" "Not for sissies!" When the film was reissued, actors wearing the same horror masks used in the movie "crashed out of the screen to invade the audience and abduct girls from their seats!" At least that's how the ads described it. Filmed in Bloody Vision. Look for this unbelievably well-photographed oddity with Carolyn Brandt (the director's wife), Atlas King, and a hypnotic umbrella! Vilmos Zigmond was the cinematographer.
