"Previewed in Hollywood as REVENGE OF THE DEAD, Wood's semi-sequel to BRIDE OF THE MONSTER was never released theatrically due to unpaid lab bills. Perennial western badman Kenne Duncan is Dr. Acula, a name Wood used for a projected TV series to star Bela Lugosi. Tor Johnon returns as the Himilayan giant, Lobo, somewhat worse for wear. With Wood's pal, Criswell, ingenue Valda Hansen (who would later claim she was 16 what the time), Duke Moore, Paul Marco, Bela's PLAN 9 double, Tom Mason, (as Wingate Foster's ghost), western actor John Carpenter, Don Nagel and Jeannie Stevens as The Black Ghost.
Some scenes Wood incorporated from his 1957 TV short, FINAL CURTAIN, with Moore and Stevens. Take note of several camera shots of Tor Johnson which are direct references to the 1932 WHITE ZOMBIE, a personal favorite of Ed and Bela's."
