Death Curse of Tartu (1966)

Director: William Grefe

Starring: Fred Pinero, Babette Sherrill, Mayra Gomez Kemp, Bill Marcus, Sherman Hayes

More info: IMDb


Plot: A group of students on an archaeology assignment in the Everglades decide to throw a dance party one night. The spot they choose happens to be the burial site of an ancient Indian medicine man named Tartu. He returns from the dead to take his revenge on those who desecrated his grave site.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again? Sure.

This is a pretty decent uber low budget flick...and it was filmed in south Florida! It's dopey as hell but it's fun.

Killer snakes that leap out of trees? Got it!

A Vincent Price lookalike dressed like Indiana Jones? Got it!

Hip youngsters looking for a good time? Got it!

A groovy dance party in the middle of the Everglades? Got it!

Youngsters just dumb enough to go swimming in the Everglades? Got it!

Fresh water sharks living in the Everglades? Got it!

A dumb ass broad accidentally becoming gator bait? Got it!

Creepy-ass undead mutherfuckers coming out of the grave? Got it!

A badass final shot? Got it!

This gem is part of a double feature disc by Something Weird Video, paired with STING OF DEATH (1965) and loaded with vintage shorts and trailers. It's a must-see for fans of low budget cheeseball cinema of the 60s!
