Revolt of the Zombies (1936) is another very early zombie film that is a loose follow-up to 1932’s White Zombie.

Much like White Zombie it was It was produced and directed by the Halperin Brothers, and it once again involves an incantation that permits a user to have control over other people. The shambling undead were still a number of years away from becoming the predominant type of zombie in cinema.

Bela Lugosi’s eyes appear in the film (as an overlay) whenever a person succumbs to the zombie mind-control. The overlay image of his eyes were taken directly from White Zombie and Lugosi was not credited in this film.

Despite having its moments, this isn’t a great film and it was mostly regarded as a disappointment at the time…and to be honest, it hasn’t aged well
