The Serpent and the Rainbow

Description
The movie follows Dennis Alan, a Harvard researcher sent to Haiti by a pharmaceutical company to investigate the zombie legend and any possible connection it might have to a rumor about a drug used by black magic practitioners to turn people into zombies. In his quest to find the miracle drug, the cynical scientist enters the rarely seen netherworld of walking zombies, blood rites and ancient curses.

An admirable effort to put the voodoo back in zombie mythology ... anyone interested in a different take on a zombie tale should certainly give it a look-over.

A solid supernatural voodoo chiller that finely mixes fantasy with real terror to provide the required horror pic scares.

Unfortunately, the political parallel between the ideological repression of Baby Doc's regime and the stultifying effects of the zombifying fluid is only sketchily developed, leaving us with a series of striking but isolated set pieces.

Despite the strongly emphasized exoticness its Haitian scenery, The Serpent and the Rainbow may be Wes Craven's most pedestrian film.

Take a powerful, revealing nonfiction book, sift through it for its most cliche'd elements and turn it into a terror film and you've got The Serpent and the Rainbow.

[Craven] seems wiser and more story-conscious -- but thankfully still full of the same surprises.

Better (certainly classier) than most films directed by the late Wes Craven, this zombie flick still registers as an also-ran in the horror sweepstakes.
