Review

Madeleine and Neil are a young couple in love (roses are red, violets are blue and so on…). As it happens in movies, someone yet is in love with Madeleine. That someone is Beaumont, who invites them on his Haitian plantation to be married there. Madeleine and Neil agree without knowing of his intentions. Beaumont decided to get married with Medelein in any way. He asked for help the local voodoo sorcerer who is called Legendre who will try to help him in his intentions…….Enough from me, U have to watch the rest……

Reason to Watch

Actors = good, story…OK – good idea, movie – slow, and zombies do look pretty pitiful. But, helloooo, those are 30’s! What do you expect?! So if you are a horror movie fan go on and watch the movie because it DOES have its moments, even if they’re few.

Context

It is the first film dealing with zombies, a popular horror film subject of the last forty years, first released on August 4, 1932. This is classic Lugosi movie and helped set the tone for the future of horror.

Most Memorable Quote(s)

Beaumont: “I thought that beauty would be enough for me—but the soul is gone!” Legosi: “Fuck you, bitch! Hows ’bouts you be my zombie, too!”
