White Zombie (2014) - Zombie Horror Film Trailer
The original White Zombie was released in 1932 and is one of the first zombie films ever to be made to my knowledge. It starred the horror icon Bela Lugosi and was ok, but not a true classic like Dracula, Frankenstein etc. In White Zombie the zombies were more of the real world kind; people who had been given a poison that kept them malleable and passive and then forced to work out on a plantation. Now in 2014 it is to be given a remake courtesy of Ragnbone Productions.
Included below is the trailer for this remake which is due out later on this year I believe. It doesn't seem like it is going to deviate too much from the originals story of a man enlisting the help of a Witch Doctor to take a woman away from her true love. I imagine the zombies of the tale will again be realistic ones rather than undead fiends released from the gates of Hell itself. It could be interesting, does not seem to be the greatest of budgets and some of the acting seemed a bit suspect, but if it manages to get the feeling of a period piece right than this could have some promise to it and be something a bit different from the norm. Anyway check out the trailer and see what you think...
