Description by OLDIES.com:
Undercover ghostchaser Duke Moore investigates a mysterious medium (Keene Duncan) who fleeces relatives of the dead by fake channeling with the beyond. But beware--the night is alive with ghouls! Titanic 400 lb. Tor Johnson, Vampira-wannabe Valda Hansen, the ever-clever psychic Criswell (whose predictions are always 100% wrong) and the irrepressible comedy of Kelton the Cop (Paul Marco) are all here in this return to the great days of the gothic horror shockers that thrilled Ed Wood as a child. Night of the Ghouls is a must for all "Woodheads" and marks the end of an era for this unique filmmaker. You have to see it to believe it!
A dim-witted cop sent to check out a bogus haunted house is met by a giant mute monster and, of course, an evil, swinging psychic. 400 pound Tor Johnson takes another bow as "Lobo." Directed by the King of Bad Movies, Ed Wood, NIGHT OF THE GHOULS is camp at its most ridiculous.
From the idiosyncratic mind of Ed Wood comes this cult horror classic.
A deceptive medium bilks people out of their money by fooling them into thinking he can reanimate the dead. Then one day, to the bogus mystic's surprise, some of the corpses actually do return to life.
Now these pesky stiffs want HIM six feet under!
Cult Film |
- This cult oddity followed "Bride of the Monster" and "Plan 9 from Outer Space," and it is the second to last movie in director Ed Wood's series of campy horror films.
"Night of the Ghouls" went unreleased for more than two decades due to Wood's inability to pay the film lab.
- Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification.
