I Walked With A Zombie
A nurse is hired to care for a landowner’s wife on a remote island in this Jacques Tourneur-directed horror.
Dir Jacques Tourneur
With James Ellison, Frances Dee, Tom Conway
From celebrated director-producer duo Jacques Tourneur and Val Lewton (whose iconic Cat People was released a year prior) comes the story of a nurse hired to care for a powerful landowner’s wife on a remote Caribbean island. Taking unlikely inspiration from Jane Eyre, this visually atmospheric (if culturally problematic) mix of Haitian folklore and racial commentary is a much classier affair than its exploitation title might imply.
