The original zombie classic, starring Bela Lugosi as Murder Legendre, who runs a sugar plantation mill in Haiti using the labor of the living dead who would tear him to pieces if they were released from their zombie state. The wealthy Charles Beaumont has enlisted Legendre’s help to spirit away a young bride-to-be, Madeline Short (Madge Bellamy) whom he is secretly in love with but is about to be wed to another young man. But Legendre turns her into another one of his zombies for his own evil purposes. A wonderfully menacing film with Lugosi in the quintessential role of pure evil.
