Veteran sleuth William Cornish (William Boyd) and his assistant Dr. Steven Walcott (Hooper Atchley) are brought in to investigate. Stumbling close to the the truth, Dr. Walcott is shot. Cornish cannot prevent Enid from being lured to a nearby mortuary where the dead appear to arise. Enid is shocked to learn that there are forces that will go to any lengths to prevent the ghastly truth of her brother's unholy demise from coming to light.

The Bottom of the B Barrell Movie Lover: from MIDDLE VILLAGE, NY US -- January, 7, 2011

I beg to differ with some reviewers who awarded this film as high a rating as they did. It has a B plot, B acting, and its boring.

Midnight Warning bit of a snore Movie Lover: from Pittsburgh, PA US -- July, 8, 2005

If one wants to follow a very talkative, two-or-three scene story which reads more like a stage play, so be it. It is an interesting mystery for what it's worth, but the mortuary scene is so ridiculously silly and stupid: "Eeeeeeenid." This is a fun movie for kids having a weekend sleepover if they can wade through the plodding first half - rather reminds me of the sort of late-night spooky mystery movies from that era shown on horror-host TV.
