“This is a well-formed flick with lots of nice touches, including one of the best severed heads ever (and I mean ever) to be created for film. If you like horror films, give the flick a spin…” ~ Todd Doogan, THE DIGITAL BITS
“THE GRAPES OF DEATH is a noteworthy homage to George A. Romero’s ‘Night of the Living Dead.’ It is also a good film that adds its own twist to the undead genre. The acting, effects and story are all better than what most similar films possess… Synapse has done a fine job in re-mastering this film to DVD…” ~ DVD Town.
A vacation with a friend turns into a horrifying nightmare when a young woman flees from a train, only to stumble into a remote village overtaken by its zombie-like inhabitants. One by one, the townspeople are slowly turning into violent, decomposing killers and the local winery may hold the key to the hellish transformations. Perhaps the pesticide used in the grape field does more than just kill insects…
Director Jean Rollin (LIVING DEAD GIRL, FASCINATION) is in top form with THE GRAPES OF DEATH, a film internationally known as LES RAISINS DE LA MORT. His expert direction and visual imagery have made him one of the most honored horror directors of all time.
