Teenage Zombies (1959, in the public domain) is a “horror” movie about not-exactly teenagers who are turned into not-exactly zombies for a few minutes.
The rest of the time, it’s a movie about walking and boating, walking while looking for a boat, walking toward or away from a boat, boating in order to go walking… hold on a sec—gotta catch my breath… walking on the bow of a boat, and dragging a boat on or off the shore.
There are also some very exciting off-screen water-skiing sequences, as well as some imaginary horses.
In between the privileged rich-kid transportation, there’s a plan to turn all Americans into mindless slaves, orchestrated by a group whose motives are apparently so diabolical they couldn’t be discussed on film.
