I Walked With A Zombie(1943)(Review)[Flashback Friday]
Before the zombie became the pop-cultural sensation that they've become, they used to be notorious for being a product of voodoo enslavement. The ability to drain someone's sense of free will resulted in free labor among other benefits.
When a nurse is hired to work at a private island tending to one of the owner's ailing wives, she begins to unravel a mystery surrounding the family.
It's clean fun with next-to-none violence and a reliance on a brooding atmosphere. It's a neat story with a few creepy images near the end. A rather simple set up that takes It's time before it launches the attack. It's easy to see why this has been revered as a classic, and I'm glad I got to check it out.
"I Walked With a Zombie" is now streaming on Shudder for a limited time.
