"The Undead" is a 1957 horror film directed by Roger Corman starring Pamela Duncan, Richard Garland, Allison Hayes, and Val Dufour. It follows the story of prostitute Diana Love (Duncan) who is put into a hypnotic trance by psychic Quintis (Dufour), thus causing her to regress back to a previous life as Helene, a woman from the Middle Ages who is to die at dawn under suspicion of being a witch. Star Allison Hayes also starred in "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" (1958). "The Undead" was later featured on "Mystery Science Theater 3000" during its eighth season. Richard Devon was also featured as Satan, as well as Billy Barty as an evil imp.

Trivia
