Review
The tale is set in a smouldering, decimated post World War II in the town of Meridian. Keeping dialogue to a minimum they wisely let the cameraman cut loose on this odd fairy tale, avoiding the stagey static feel that pervades most early cinema. The Halperin brothers made White Zombie in just 11 days back in 1932 with $50,000 and sets left behind from Universal's Dracula and Frankenstein. White Zombie doesn't tell us a story when it can show us one and as such is one of the most visually interesting horror films ever made, only helped by the presence of Bela Lugosi.
