On the spookiest night of the year, why not take in one of the earliest independent horror films? White Zombie was released in 1932 to a public demanding more chills, thrills and more importantly — more Bela Lugosi, who had played Dracula the previous year.
In one of his greatest screen performances, Lugosi plays Murder Legendre, a plantation owner and voodoo practitioner. When a young man enacts a Faustian bargain with Legendre to lure the woman he loves away from her fiance, Legendre instead turns her into a zombie slave. All set to one of the best and most chilling scores of the early sound era!
Admission is free!
