White Zombie (1932; Bela Lugosi)







Synopsis: Innocent beauty Madeline (Madge Bellamy) arrives on the island of Haiti to marry her fiancĂ© Neil (John Harron), but on their way to the ceremony they become aware of a sinister plot. An evil voodoo charmer named Murder Legendre (Bela Lugosi) is stealing the corpses of recently-deceased natives and reanimating them into zombie slaves to work in his sugar mill. Madeline and Neil continue on to their destination, but soon the owner of the plantation where they intend to be married (Robert Frazer) finds himself in love with Madeline, and willing to go to any length to claim her as his bride — including making a pact with Murder Legendre he may soon regret.
