Horror Movie Challenge #20: "White Zombie"
Imagine my surprise when this movie featured a scene I remembered from the documentary, a woman dressed in white saying "I see...death" in a haunted voice. I never knew which movie that scene was from, so I kind of gave up on ever finding it because I'd have to watch tons of movies to do that, but luckily I DO watch tons of horror movies, so I eventually found it. Turns out that creepy woman dressed in white is engaged to one man but another man loves her, and since they live in Haiti he is willing to make use of the local customs that can turn people into zombies, because he wants this woman to be with him no matter what the cost. The premise is creepy and sufficiently rape-y for it to wig me out, plus Bela Lugosi's eyes are spooky and mesmerizing, so I enjoyed this movie.
