Le lac des morts vivants (1981)

Awkward yet awesome — Written by Greymatter on 08.03.2015

The plot ? Somewhere in France in a small town, zombies nazi soldiers came back from the "lake" (more like a pond), where their bodies were hidden after being killed in an ambush by the men of the village. One of them have a daughter in the village he had with one of the woman when their patrol was passing by.

This is it. BUT, but, the producer has no budget to do it. The cast is mainly local dwellers, so bad actng at its finest. Awful make up and some of the cheesiest effects you can think. You can clearly see the walls of the swimming pool in the submarine views, one laughing extra actor in a good dramatic scene, special effects tubes, cameraman reflections...It's more like a game of "find what's wrong in this scene".

Le lac des morts vivants or Zombie Lake is what you called a "so-bad-it's-good" movie. Yet it does have some flaws, the main one being the lack of action. It is enjoyable but you have to be in the right mood to see it. Gather some friends, have a beer and chips that's all you need. In a word, it's awesome.

And kill that bird if you see "it".
