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.
Double bill of classic chillers from producer Val Lewton opens with the moody, dreamlike "I Walked with a Zombie," in which the nurse to a West Indies sugar baron's comatose wife is drawn into a native voodoo cult. Frances Dee, James Ellison, Tom Conway star. Then, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi supply the menace in "The Body Snatcher," an atmospheric tale set in 19th-century England about a grave robber who supplies corpses to medical researchers. Henry Daniell, Edith Atwater also star; based on a Robert Louis Stevenson story. 146 min. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, Spanish, French; audio commentary; theatrical trailers. NOTE: This Title Is Out Of Print; Limit One Per Customer.
