‘Garden of the Dead‘ was directed by John Hayes and released in 197.
The plot is definitely at the crazy end of the zombie spectrum – convicts on a chain gang sniff some experimental formaldehyde in an attempt to get high. They subsequently stage an attempted prison-break but they all get shot dead in the process.
The bodies are buried in the prison garden, but the corpses reanimate and they return form the dead hungry for….more of the formaldehyde so they can continue getting high.
Oh yeah, and they kill everyone that gets in their way.
A rather sombre and arty poster doesn’t really convey the low-budget craziness that makes up this movie.
