I usually don't watch black and white movies but I tried this one because I like older movies now too. This movie was made about 30 years before I was born, I think thats cool. I also watch this movie because I have never seen a Bela Lugosi movie. Now I can say I am a fan. I will be watching a lot more.

An independent feature made during an era when that translated into poverty row technique and budgetary concerns, White Zombie is remembered as the first zombie horror film. That doesn’t make it a classic, and it certainly doesn’t make it very good, but there’s a certain charm to it to be fair.   Most of the this charm comes from Bela Lugosi, fresh off his star-making turn in Dracula and ... read more

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.

“An independent feature made during an era when that translated into poverty row technique and budgetary concerns, White Zombie is remembered as the first zombie horror film. That doesn’t make it a classic, and it certainly doesn’t make it very good, but there’s a certain charm to it to be fair.   Most of the this charm comes from Bela Lugosi, fresh off his star-making turn in Dracula and already misusing that cache to ham it up in atrocious vehicles. Here Lugosi gets to recycle his cracked gentleman shtick, but to lesser effect. His character is much darker, more obviously menacing than the undead count of that Universal Monsters classic. Granted, his character’s obsession with voodoo mysticism smacks of racism and a fundamental misunderstanding of the actual practice. Yet no im” read more

Rediscovering Horror: a new project (26 movies items)

" Viewed: November 7 2012 This was a weird one. First off, I feel bad that some of the film appears to be missing or degraded, probably lost forever. Unlike the very elaborate and well produced Phantom of the Opera, this movie was probably produced under extreme time and financial constraints. The movie is fun, despite having some flawed acting on the part of the male and female leads. The most fun part about the movie is without a doubt Bela Lugosi's crazy eyes. "

Monthly Movie Journal: Halloween Edition (36 movies items)

" I found it a better film than its rating suggests, even if only slightly. The mix of voodoo at work combined with the at the time entirely novel 'zombie' phenomenon makes for a darkly unsettling atmosphere. Perhaps most notable from the technical side is the film's highly unsettling (at times bordering annoying use of sound. Especially in regards to the various screeching birds and the giant, wooden wheel of zombie-dom. And then there's of course Lugosi who plays his character in extremely "

"8.31 A trademark Bela Lugosi role that is not Dracula was as an evil manipulator of zombies—not the flesh-eating kind but that of hypnotized humans that does his evil biddings--like stop a girl from getting married to some guy (okay, that's not so evil). Old cinema horror is essential viewing for the genre’s fanatics as it is also the movie featured in Tim Burton’s “Ed Wood.” Before, zombies were caricatured as wrestlers who couldn't act. "
