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.
