I Walked With a Zombie
1943
Directed by Jacques Tourneur

With this I am calling a moritorium on watching movies about voodoo zombies for the Halloween Horror Countdown. Over the past few years I’ve just seen too many of them and I just grow weary. Maybe next year there will be more, but for this year there shall be no more voodoo zombies!

It’s a pretty standard plot. A nurse is hired to take care of a rich man’s wife, who was turned into a zombie, but everyone believes her to be mentally ill. Everyone, of course, but the local voodoo sect.

They didn’t get their voodoo zombie science right. You can’t just wish someone to be a voodoo zombie. You have to give them the voodoo zombie powder. Everyone knows that.

The one thing this movie has going for it is one super super creepy voodoo guy. But that’s it.

I only give it a single spooky pumpkin out of five.

At least it wasn’t Zombie Nightmare, which is probably the worst voodoo zombie movie I have ever seen and would have been downright painful had it not been that it was the MST3K version I watched. A candidate for worst zombie movie ever, period, might just be this movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1MKWKYnnAc

Although Lucio Fulci’s ‘Zombie’ is a classic example of the so bad its good zombie movie.

There’s no such thing as Voodoo Zombie Science…

If you have imagination, a budget, and a camera, you can make up whatever the hell you want.
