The Plague of the Zombies

Synopsis: Young workers are dying because of a mysterious epidemic in a little village in Cornwall. Doctor Thompson is helpless and asks professor James Forbes for help. The professor and his daughter Sylvia travel to Thomson. Terrible things happen soon, beyond imagination or reality. Dead people are seen near an old, unused mine. Late people seem to live suddenly. Professor Forbes presumes that black magic is involved and someone has extraordinary power. He doesn't know how close he is: the dead become alive because of a magic voodoo-ritual, and so they must serve their master as mindless zombies...

- Good morning, Father.

- Good morning, my dear.

- Oh, careful.

- Eh?

Oh, I'm sorry. You should know better

than to barge in here when I'm busy.

- Busy?

- Now, none of that.

When I'm on holiday

this is what keeps me busy.

- Mail, Father.

- I don't want to read it.

- There's a letter from Cornwall.

- I don't know anyone in Cornwall.

Yes, you do. Peter Tompson.

I'll open it.

Oh, Peter.

What's he doing down there?

Oh, Father, you're impossible.

You know he's got a job down there.

He's General Practitioner.

So he did.

What's he up to, then?

Well, why don't you read it

and find out?

- No, you read it.

- All right.

Ah... ah... ah... ah!

"Dear Sir James... "

A typical doctor's handwriting.

it's worse than yours, Father.

Oh, here. Give it to me.

Hm. "Just a brief line to inform you...

"For some time our village has been...

"beset by a number

of mysterious and fatal maladies.

"People have been dying off...

Lassitude, no will to live...

Well, this doesn't sound like Peter.

it's very rambling.

I wonder what's it's all about.

Well, we could easily find out.

"I desperately need your advice.

Symptoms can't be attributed to... "

- Find out? How?

- By going to Cornwall and asking him.

Go to Cornwall?

it's miles away.

Well, you can fish just as well

in Cornwall as here, Father.

Didn't your school friend...

What's her name?

Didn't she marry young Tompson?

- Alice? Mm.

- Ha.

I suppose your suggestion

that we should go to Cornwall

has nothing to do with the fact

that you'd like to see her again, eh?

Shall I pack your things?

I don't know why

I give in to you so easily.

And look up the train times.

I don't know why

I put up with you at all.

- I should have drowned you at birth.

- Thank you, Father.

I knew you'd understand.

- Come on, then. Come on, then.

- Whoa!

Oh, look, Father!

Look! A fox!

I've seen a fox.

Several of them, in fact.

I've no doubt your fox

looks very similar to all the others.

Oh, they're hunting him!

Father, those men

are hunting that fox.

Men have always hunted.

For food, yes. Not for blood lust.

Well, can't you do something, Father?

I have not come all this way

to interfere with local customs

and antagonize the people

just to satisfy your sensitivity

about the welfare of wild animals.

Father, you must agree that...

Just because you are my daughter

doesn't mean I have to agree to...

Whoa, there!

Now what's happened?

- You, have you seen him?

- Who, sir?

- The fox, you idiot!

- No, I haven't, young sir.

I've been keeping

my eyes on the road.


Is it a fox you're looking for?

Well, my dear young lady,

that was the idea.

I saw him.

He was running that way.

You'll have to hurry to catch him.

He was running fast.

We'll catch him.

Never fear. Come on.

I have a distinct feeling you were not

telling that young man the truth, Sylvia.

Your distinct feeling is correct, Father.

Oh. Well, the fox will be grateful.

I doubt if the same can be said

for the young man.

I only hope you don't meet him again.

- What is it, Sylvia?

- A funeral.

Come on!

Come on then. Whoa!


What the devil

do you think you're doing?

So the fox went that way, did it?

You'd better stay out of my sight,

young lady!

How horrible.

They should be reported.

I expect they will be, my dear.

And no doubt those your ruffians

will say it was an accident.

- Is there anything we can do, Vicar?

- Yeah, you can keep away from us.

Please, it was not our fault!
