A Haitian plantation owner convinces his young friends to wed at his residence, hoping he can use the opportunity to lure the woman away from her fiance. When this ploy fails, he turns to the help of his mill operator for assistance, hoping the man can use his voodoo knowledge to make the woman his slave. When the woman is transformed into an emotionless zombie, the plantation owner demands that the mill operator restore her, but he refuses and turns on the owner. Meanwhile, the fiance is contacted by a missionary who informs him of the state his bride-to-be is in and that there is still a chance to rescue her.
White Zombie-After arriving in Haiti to meet her fiance, a blushing bride-to-be is quickly transformed into a pallid, soulless body by creepy voodoo master Lugosi, at the behest of a jealous rival who desires her. Made for $50,000 in 11 days in 1932, this interesting horror film relies more on visuals and atmosphere than dialogue. One of Lugosi's best films from the classic era of horror.
