White Zombie

2676-poster

Young couple Madeleine and Neil are coaxed by acquaintance Monsieur Beaumont to get married on his Haitian plantation. Beaumont’s motives are purely selfish as he makes every attempt to convince the beautiful young girl to run away with him. For help Beaumont turns to the devious Legendre, a man who runs his mill by mind controlling people he has turned into zombies. After Beaumont uses Legendre’s zombie potion on Madeleine, he is dissatisfied with her emotionless being and wants her to be changed back. Legendre has no intention of doing this and he drugs Beaumont as well to add to his zombie collection. Meanwhile, grieving ‘widower’ Neil is convinced by a local priest that Madeleine may still be alive and he seeks her out.

    An absolute classic. A must see for any true horror fan, as it is one of the original zombie films, and it features the always great Bela Lugosi!

    This movie was very well done. I got bored very fast, but later in the film I really got into it. This movie was great. I found it at my local FYE which was closing, I am glad I did too.

    This classic is cool and spooky. Fun for fans of really horror movies.

    I feel SO horrible for feeling this way since its a classic but I didn’t like it. :( The storyline was stiff & slow. It was filmed well done for its time & the acting was great but the storyline for me was not good. I feel like anybody could have came up with it & filmed real quick. I’ll give it for 4 stars for being a classic since it was made in 1932.

    really like this film, shame its so old though, when you try and watch it on dvd the sound can be very fuzzy and you find yourself having to turn it way up! great story although sometimes it dragged slightly. still a classic and the original zombie film.

    + Creepy performance by Bela Lugosi
    ○ Getting the traditional zombie here with some different added aspects, such as a focus on romance rather than killing
