White Zombie

Next to DRACULA this is the best performance from Bela Lugosi you can find. Shame it's a slow and clunky piece of work mainly due to Victor Halpern;s stiff style of driecting. Still, you can find this in dollar bins everywhere and it's worth a buck just to see Lugosi as Murder Legendre (what a great name!) the zombie master who provides pretty much all of the action here. Unlike other roles his style suits the character perfectly and seeing as this 1932 flick clocks in at a mere hour and ten minutes it's well worth a look. As a small bit of trivia, Rob Zombie named his band after this one...not sure why but apparantly he did!
