Review of White Zombie (1932)

Moving picture, 69 minutes

A sorcerer helps a man in a triangle drama win his love by applying the same black magic that keeps the sorcerer’s plantation running smoothly, without complaint from the lines of gaunt and mindless workers.

Exotic Gothic horror using the faux voodoo zombie. Intensely racist.
