Horror Flick of the Week: Zinda Laash (1967)
Ah, the much-maligned and neglected realm of Pakistani cinema. A realm of sometimes beautiful, and most of the time…questionable movies. Luckily, Zinda Laash is actually one of the former. It’s incredibly difficult to get your hands on pretty much any Lollywood movies, and especially ones with English subtitles. Lucky for us this one is probably the easiest movie from them you can find, restored lovingly, and also…the first X rated horror film in Lollywood history. Funny, because it’s hardly even close to rivaling what you’d consider the lustier of the Hammer horror movies.
It’s Dracula, it’s a mad scientist, it’s dancing, it’s awesome 60s perms, and lovingly painted shadows created in only the way black-and-white films can offer.
If that isn’t enough to convince you to watch ‘Dracula in Pakistan’/’Zinda Laash’/’The Living Corpse’ this October, maybe this charming dance sequence will convince you…
