Indie filmmaker Creep Creepersin is at it again. The prolific low budget film director is back, this time with a remake of the Bela Lugosi classic White Zombie. How’d it turn out? Watch the trailer for yourselves and let us know what you think.
The flick stars Elina Madison, Tony Slade, Mindy Robinson, Dean Mounir, Myles Crawford, Anne Montavon, Lea Vonn, Joseph Daniels, Tim Chizmar, Jake Osti, Edward Joyce, Adam Jaffe, and Creepersin himself as Murder Legendre.
The synopsis of the original 1932 film reads as follows…
Bela Lugosi followed up his star-making role in Dracula with this ambitious low-budget horror film from the Halperin brothers, who effectively transplanted the misty Gothic mood of the Universal horror films to their poverty-row studio. White Zombie drips with atmosphere from the opening, as eerie chanting accompanies the credits and Madeleine (Madge Bellamy) arrives at midnight to witness a mysterious burial before coming face to face with the satanic looking Murder Legendre (Lugosi with goatee and searing eyes), a hypnotist and voodoo master who has been supplying the local mills with an army of zombie laborers. Madeleine’s nightmare is just beginning. Having landed in a world of almost perpetual night, where hollow-eyed zombies lumber through the sugar mill and the ghostly town is eerily bereft of living souls, she becomes the object of desire for Legendre, whose plan to possess her involves her initiation to the world of the undead. This first zombie movie is also one of the best, with Lugosi’s archly sinister performance dominating the film (thankfully obscuring a lot of overacting by supporting players) and astounding sets and gorgeous matte paintings creating a wondrous sense of poetic doom.
