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.
