“There is nothing like a dame. That’s what the lusty sailors sang, in “South Pacific,” going nuts in paradise. The servicemen in “The Master” are in much the same place, and the same plight. The Second World War is drawing to its exhausted close, but these young Americans still seem to be doing battle with themselves, and, rather than expressing their quandary in song, they carve a woman out of sand on the beach.

“Not a sequel to Night of the Living Dead, but a semi-official spin-off about a military biohazzard container unleashing fast-moving, brain-eating zombies. The movie is very inventive in the way it depicts the spread of the disease: chopping up a zombie doesn’t work, so they cremate it, but the smoke created turns into acid rain that zombifies an entire graveyard. The opening scene, where the training of a new employee at a medical supply warehouse leads to the unleashing of the zombies, is especially masterful. It’s also a harsh critique of military ineptitude and callousness. The exaggerated punk rocker characters at times tip what could be a perfect balance of dark humor and intense horror, but it’s still one of the most satisfying zombie movies not directed by George Romero.” (Bryan Theiss, The Scarecrow Video Movie Guide)
