Zinda Laash (1967)

Professor Tabini is experimenting on an elixir that he believes will beat death. When he tries it on himself, however, things don’t work out as planned and he dies. When his assistant finds him no longer among the living, she carries him down stairs and slaps him into the crypt in the basement. Unfortunately for her, he rises from the grave and chomps down on her neck.

The plot borrows heavily from Hammer Horror’s Horror of Dracula, in fact there are times when the music even has a noticeable similarity to James Bernard’s score. There are some classical themes thrown in as well. “The Barber of Seville” is playing during the car chase scene and some other cues which are well eccentric to say the least. Some elements of the plot even come directly from Bram Stoker’s novel, not from “Horror of Dracula”. Zinda Laash is also referenced in Omar Khan’s Zibahkhana, usually termed as its sequel.
