Based on the 1943 film, I Walked with a Zombie, which is pretty cool. This movie was done by the Tales from the Crypt folks, so you know it’s going to be a pretty good movie. It’s going to have some real scares, it’s going to have decent actors, going to have some fun jokes and thrills. And it did not disappoint. This movie also has Tim Curry, which is always a win. However, there is a lot of slow-mo. Like, what? Anyway, lady loses her doctor’s license,  goes to Jamaica, gets a voodoo curse put on her, then goes through the whole deal of trying to survive. Lots of weird cultural appropriation. Fun watch for a rainy day when you’re looking at your computer and want to pay like 62% attention to a movie
