White Zombie (DVD)
Directed by Victor Halperin
After becoming an overnight success with his starring role in Tod Browning's Dracula, Bela Lugosi struggled to find roles worthy of his acting talent, without parodying his depiction of Bram Stoker's notorious count. Independently produced by Edward Halperin, WHITE ZOMBIE was one of the rare films that provided Lugosi with just such an opportunity. In spite of its budgetary limitations, WHITE ZOMBIE manages to be a remarkably atmospheric treatment of the Haitian zombie myth, which would evolve into one of the most popular and enduring subgenres of the horror film.
