Don't Go Near the Park (also known as Curse of the Living Dead, Nightstalker and Sanctuary for Evil) is a 1981 American horror film directed by Lawrence D. Foldes. The film gained notoriety when it was successfully prosecuted in the UK and placed on the video nasty list.


After being cursed by their mother, a caveman brother and sister are forced to live their lives by preying on young people in a park and devouring their entrails in order to stay young. After 12,000 years of killing they attempt to lift the curse and become immortal by finding a virgin's soul they can sacrifice, with the brother fathering a daughter for that purpose.

Critical reception[edit]
