The Living Corpse (Zinda Laash, 1967)

US Mondo Macabro DVD edition



US DVD edition in 4:3 fullscreen original ratio and with Urdu 2.0 stereo audio and with english subtitles, Black & White

Supposedly the First actual horror movie ever made in Lollywood, i.e. the film industry in Lahore, Pakistan, and based on
the novel written by Bram Stoker.

The Story: Professor Tabani (Rehan) has created a elixir of life, but unfortunately it doesn't work that well as he dies when
drinking it and he wakes up as an undead, a Vampire. Immediately our sweet professor bites his female assistant (played
by Nasreen Sheela) and Voilá the epidemi is spreading. The curious Dr. Aqil (Asad) is visiting the professor vampire's
castle and he's attacked and bitten by the Vampiress after a scene of dancing to cool 1960's Pakistanian Pop music.
The Van Helsing of the film is Aqil's brother (Habib) who finds the vampires in their coffins. Now Aqil's cute fiancée
Shabnam (Deeba) and her family are in danger from the Vampires of Pakistan.

There are 3 (three) song and/or dance numbers by Shabnam and her friends and two more.

nice to see them, old but still alive)
