31 Days of Horror. Day 20: White Zombie

Every year we have a tradition in the Forto house where we celebrate the greatest month of the year, October, with scare your socks off, hide under the covers, turn on all the lights, sleep with one eye open, fright fest, movie marathon everynight of the month! We call it 31 Days of Horror.

White Zombie is one of the first “Talkie” horror movies and possibly the first to explore the zombie theme that would become a staple in the genre. With Bela Lugosi as the main character, made shortly after his blockbuster Dracula, it brought moviegoers to the theaters in 1932. White Zombie was a relatively low budget movie at the time and used many of the sets used in Dracula and Frankenstein on the Universal Studios lots.

Plot: A young man turns to a witch doctor to lure the woman he loves away from her fiance, but instead turns her into a zombie slave.
