Description by OLDIES.com:

Literary classics become screen horror classics when given the Lewton touch. Take the gothic romance of Jane Eyre, reset it in the West Indies, add the direction of Jacques Tourneur (Cat People) and the overriding terror of the living dead and you have I Walked with a Zombie. Frances Dee plays the nurse who witnesses the strange power of voodoo.

Boris Karloff plays the title role in the Lewton adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's The Body Snatcher, directed with subtle calculation by versatile Robert Wise. A doctor (Henry Daniell) needs cadavers for medical studies and Karloff is willing to provide them one way or another. Don't miss his scene with fellow horror icon Bela Lugosi.

Rating 5.0 I Walked With A Zombie-The Body Snatcher Movie Lover: from saint germain en laye, Yvelines FR -- May, 19, 2006

A WOW and double WOW. Two of Val Lewton's many great productions. As always captivating moods and characters of a kind hard to match.
While both are classics of the genre, I rate equally excellent, I call particular attention to the merit of the zombie film. There have been quite a few zombie films made in more recent years, and frankly, with few exceptions, I find them to be mindless tear the heads off rubbish, lacking almost completely in suspense and imagination.
It is unfortunate that modern film makers feel so much blood and over the top effects necessary to sell their public. A film like I Walked With A Zombie, though the title sounds a bit silly, is anything but the best of it's kind. An eeriely relistic exploration of a strange, strange reality.
