Monster of the Day #444

Freeman aka Dr. Freex introduced us to this one at a T-Fest, and it was (no pun intended) sweet.

  • The Rev.

    Yeah, this was a fun one.  The zombies are wonderful, as is Baron Samedi.

    They should’ve had another movie chronicling their further adventures, dammit.

  • Ah, good ol SUGAR HILL. Not that the title gives you even the slightest hint of what the movie is. I’m pretty keen on these zombies. The cobwebs stretched over their forms really adds an extra element that I’ve sadly not seen anywhere else. (Other than maybe the ‘ghost’ you could see without Illusion-O in 13 GHOSTS.)

  • Kirk Draut

    According to the IMDB, Sugar Hill was shot in Houston.  Cool.

  • Gamera977

    Wow, are these classic ‘voodoo’ zombies? Much prefer them over the new ‘radiation’ zombies. If so this is another movie I’ll have to check out.  

  • Been a while since I saw SUGAR HILL, but I recall really enjoying it (and I usually don’t get very excited about non-50’s voodoo movies). Very well structured as I recall, slicker than usual for a 70’s AIP. Bonus points for Robert Quarry playing the heavy, during that period where AIP was trying to groom him to be the next Vincent Prince.

  • Flangepart

    Nice look. Wonder if they got that look from Svengooli.

  • The Rev.

    Yeah, definitely.  It’s good times, although the female lead’s a bit bland.  The zombie mayhem and Baron Samedi are great, though.

  • Gamera977

     Thanks guys, I’ll have to add this to my ‘to watch’ list.

    Sugar Hill, huh?  I believe this is available on Netflix Streaming for those of you with accounts.  If I’m remembering right, it’s actually sitting in my queue, waiting for me to get around to it.
