Zombie Lake (1981)

C'est horrible!  Zombie Lake is a red hot mess of a French zombie film.  It's only appeal is to 13 year old boys who will enjoy all the absolutely unnecessary nude scenes in this film.  The only good thing I can say about Zombie Lake is that the underwater shots were filmed rather well.  Other than that it's a complete and total disaster.
First of all, the zombie makeup and blood effects look like a group of Jr. High School students did them.  And maybe they did.  It would explain all the T&A used in this picture!  We're talking bright green stick makeup straight out of a Halloween kit from Wal-mart.  Then there's the flesh munching where zombies bite people's necks and we see blood smeared on them, yet their flesh remains intact.  It's a mystery or, perhaps, just bad filmmaking!
There is a plot but who really cares?  There are more holes in it than a French baguette.  The story merely sets up more nekkid women cavorting in the pond and zombies killing them.  It doesn't get any worse than Zombie Lake.  Even the worst of Roger Corman films had a sense of camp about them that make them bearable to watch.  There is nothing funny, artistic or scary about this little slice of zombie porn.  Avoid it like the zombie apocalypse.
For more info check out the film's entry in IMDB.
