[[ArtisticLicense by dropping ammunition straight down the barrel]] (a lateral move, so far as realism goes).

The effects are actually really, really good. You should probably give the movie a rewatch if you think it suffers from Special Effects Failure.
Though he originally intended it to be a HauntedHouse film, [[ExecutiveMeddling executives insisted he add zombies to make it more profitable]] due to zombie movies being the rage at the time. The film has since became a cult classic for its surrealist imagery, the {{Gorn}} that got it on Britain's infamous VideoNasties list, and for its [[SpecialEffectsFailure amateurish special effects]].

Set in [[TheBigEasy Louisiana]], the film opens in 1927 with a painter named Schweick painting a vision of Hell in the basement of the Seven Doors Hotel when a lynch mob breaks in and murders him with quicklime, believing him to be a warlock. Shifting to the "present day", a young woman from New York named Liza Merril (Catriona Maccoll) has inherited the hotel and is renovating it. The activities of the contractors open the [[HellGate Gate of Hell]] the hotel is built over. Mysterious deaths and incidents ensue, with Liza and a local doctor encountering a mysterious blind girl who wants them to leave the hotel, a mystic tome called the Book of Eibon that supposedly contains the answers to the nightmare at hand, [[GiantSpider face eating tarantulas]], Schweick's ghoul, and eventually the rising dead. It ends with the two passing into the afterlife, which is [[TheNothingAfterDeath depicted as a blank gray wasteland littered with corpses]].
