Carried across the Atlantic to the New World, voodoo gave the slaves in the West Indies a new sense of identity and hope. But around it clustered tales of sorcery, animal sacrifice and the walking dead: zombies. Forbidden as evil and dangerous, it became an underground religion, weirdly combined with Christianity.

With the film
White Zombie (1932) came the birth of the cinematic voodoo, a subject that soon burgeoned in the genre of Hollywood horror films. Since that time voodoo has been represented in the cinema - and thus, exists in the Western imagination - as a satanic cult threatening to upset the status quo with zombies, black magic, sorcery and human sacrifice. This imagery has served to reinforce racist attitudes and negative stereotypes of black culture.

Nice list. I keep forgetting that Child's Play has a lot of Voodoo mojo in it.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Jan 15 12:47
Thanks! Yeah, I haven't seen the movie yet, so I was surprised that voodoo is a part of it.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Jan 15 20:45
Nice! The Serpent and The Rainbow was a messed up movie!
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Jan 16 17:23
Thanks! Haha, looking forward to watching it then :D

Live and Let Die

Would the Dead films from George Romero and the Evil Dead movies count? I know they involve Zombies, but not sure about Voo Doo.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Jan 17 11:59
The Romero ones definitely don't count, because the zombies were not created with voodoo. Not familiar with Evil Dead films, but most likely this applies to them also.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll add Live and Let Die! :)
Posted: 5 years ago at Apr 17 12:48
Oh, thanks! :D I really wish I could finish this sometime soon, I've been too lazy :P Probably during the next month, since my uni responsiblities end by 1st of May. I'll let you know!
Posted: 2 years, 2 months ago at Feb 27 2:01
Two more to add to your list:

1.) Live and Let Die
2.) Marked For Death (I know, it's a Steven Seagal movie, but it does include voodoo, or rather, the Hollywood version of it.)
