In a small lakeside town of the French countryside, young women are reported missing. The superstitious locals blame the “Lake of Ghosts“, but the town’s Mayor seems powerless to take any action. When another girl is found with her throat ripped out, a Parisian journalist begins to uncover the deadly secrets of the lake and its dead, green-faced Nazi zombies.
Jess Franco and Jean Rollin teaming up for what’s considered the “worst French horror movie ever made” is a Z-cinema freak dream coming true. But Zombie Lake wouldn’t be the monument it is today without Pop Club De France collaborator Daniel J. White’s haunting score full of twisted synthetic library sounds, presented here for the first time on swamp green vinyl.
