I Walked with a Zombie (Tourneur, 1943): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 6.10pm


This 35mm presentation, also screening on October 20th, is part of the 'In Dreams Are Monsters' season at BFI Southbank. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
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 the opening to this deeply fascinating movie.
