I Walked with a Zombie (Tourneur, 1943) + White Zombie (Halperin, 1932):
BFI Southbank, NFT2, 3.30pm

Chicago Reader review of I Walked with a Zombie:
This elegant little 1943 film by Jacques Tourneur, a tale of voodoo and devil worship in the West Indies, is one of the most poetic works to emerge from the Val Lewton unit at RKO in the 40s; it transcends the conventions of the horror genre and remains one of Lewton-Tourneur's most compelling studies in light and darkness. Not to be missed. With Frances Dee, Tom Conway, and Edith Barrett.
Don Druker

Here and above is an extract from the film.
