This genre-busting Universal-International effort from 1959, Curse Of The Undead, is a real curio. A unique blending of the Western and Horror Film, it doesn’t cave to the cliches of either — and it’s a better movie for it. Just how much better is probably a matter of taste. Starring Eric Fleming of Rawhide, it was produced by Joseph Gershenson, head of U-I’s music department.
Almost impossibly hard to find, it was once available on VHS. It’s certainly worthy of 79 minutes of your time — just think, cowboys and vampires! — so contact your local bootlegger today.
And dig that Reynold Brown poster art!
