Joe Bob Briggs

Drive-In Movie Critic of Grapevine, TX

"The hero of the movie is a police lab scientist played by Richard Denning, who tries to stop the rash of killings by these zombie-like creatures with glowing 'blood.'

"A police captain (and friend of Denning's family's) receives the zombie treatment, but no one notices anything odd about him until Denning's daughter discovers that 'Uncle Dave' has dismembered her favorite doll. (In fact, no one ever seems to figure out that these creatures can be identified by the huge scars on their foreheads.)

"Denning follows 'Uncle Dave' back to the mad scientist's lab. While the creatures battle the police who have surrounded the place, Denning destroys the lab, causing the creatures to collapse. At the end of the movie, Denning's daughter receives a new doll from 'Uncle Dave,' whom she is told will be 'away' for a while."
