‘Zombies on Broadway’ (1945) was released by RKO who were also behind ‘I Walked with a Zombie‘ (1943) – however both films couldn’t be further apart in style or content.
‘Zombies on Broadway’ was made as a comedy (except it isn’t funny) and involves two press agents who are sent to a Caribbean island by a nightclub owner to procure some actual zombies which can then be brought back to the US and used as an attraction for a new stage-show in the nightclub.
Bela Lugosi stars as the individual who can source the zombies for the unwitting press-agents.
This film hasn’t stood the test of time well, and neither the film or the theatrical posters will give much satisfaction for zombie movie fans.
