Gas gauge say near empty so Dick (THE BANK DICK) Purcell, Mantan (A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO) Moreland and John (DESTINATION MOON) Archer decide to set plane down on island below. (Dick Purcell dies of heart condition at age 35!)

Plane crack up bad when coming down an' Mantan is thrown from wreckage and end up next to old gravestone! He probably wake up and scream!

The gang walk around an' find old dark house in middle of jungle! Mantan have plenty of creepy encounter after that, of course!!

Later that night, Mantan get to go to kitchen and hang out with sexy maid and cranky old voodoo lady!

Then, he get to meet future zombie pals he be rooming wif' from now on.

Jungle not exactly safe place at night! At least one zombie have good posture!
