I bought four DVDs of Horror Classics a few years ago for Halloween and have been slowly watching them off and on. So I thought the Zombie Challenge by Velvet would be a wonderful opportunity to watch White Zombie with Bela Lugosi.
A young engaged couple find themselves in Haiti to meet a Mr. Beaumont who will setup a business opportunity for Nathaniel. But on the way meet a bunch of zombies and their master, who steals Madeleine's scarf...
Basically, Mr. Beaumont wants Madeleine for himself and convinces the zombie master to help and thus she's turned into a zombie. Her fiancee and a local doctor must save the day!
This was a fun and cheesy horror classic. These zombies weren't the undead that ate brains like today, but those who are put into a trance-like state and are under mind control, such as in the Voudou tradition. And this was the movie that introduced America to the concept of zombies!!! A true horror classic, for sure!
