2nd time watching this. Bill Pullman's always delivers a fine performance. Very interesting story, based on true facts. Though you can say a container of orange juice is 100% natural, and in all reality perhaps only 10% of the 100% is actually all natural. (rest sugar water). Just making a point. Overall, this movie was very entertaining and refreshingly unpredictable at times. Nice special effect too! I recommend. 3.5 / 5 Another VERY interesting and movie well done is "True Believer's (also based on a true story) If you liked this, you will want to check out that too! Martin Sheen is in it, and when doe he ever disappoint?

I watched this movie some 20 years ago & scared me to death. I've found it here now. I obviously suggest every horror movie lover to watch it. Good stuff. The scientific bit is not really accurate, but because it's too complex to stuff everything in just 1 movie. 8/10

Have watched this movie many times and it never fails to entertain and creep me out. If you enjoy this movie like I do look up Edmund Wade Davis a Canadian Anthropologist, Ethnobotanist, Photographer and author of The Serpent and The Rainbow. Great movie 5/5

Yes, much of it did happen, although like Joe Friday used to say, "Names were changed to protect the innocent". The only recorded death (certified by American Doctor's at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Deschapelle in the Artibonite Vally area in Haiti; about an hour and a half DRIVE from Port-au-Prince. With the rare exception of cremations, nearly all decedents are interred in above ground crypts. The Zombification victims was named, I believe, Francois Narcisse. The day after he was entombed, he was found walking in his home villages. His friends and family were none too pleased and ordered him back to the cemetery where he belonged. I heard that eventually, he was admitted to a missionary run mental health facility. The author of the book, played sort of by Bill Pullman, is a ethnobotonist, traveling around the world looking for "bush remedies" that really word so that Drug Companies might test it and produce it for use in industrialized countries. ,

Very interesting movie! What makes this movie scary is that things like this really do happen in certain parts of the world... it seems South America mainly. Most people are familiar with the get bit by a zombie you will turn into a zombie scenario which is not that realistic. Romero's Night of the Living Dead or other zombie films are good examples of it. But Serpent and the Rainbow is not that type of a zombie film. Serpent and the Rainbow is a very underrated and extremely creepy film about REAL ZOMBISM. Yes I say REAL ZOMBISM! To understand the movie Serpent and the Rainbow on a deeper scale research REAL ZOMBISM: Scopolamine aka Devil's Breath is one such drug from the Borrachero tree it is also known as Angel Trumpet: Brugmansia. This plant is known turn people into a zombie-like state... people will even give up their free will. If one is interested in real zombism and other magic from South America I recommend a book by Jaya Bear: Amazon Magic: The Life Story of Ayahuasquero and Shaman Don Agustin Rivas Vasquez -- very good book that goes well with the the theme of the movie Serpent and the Rainbow. Yes I loved Serpent and the Rainbow! It maybe Wes Craven's best movie to date! 9.5/10

Watched this as a kid after my Mum had gone to bed - snuck down in the night with my Dad to watch it and it scared the hell out of me (Thanks for the nightmares Dad!) Bought it a few years ago...lost it's clout 20 years on but fun little film nonetheless

That was a really good movie. I wouldn't say it was scary though. But it did have alot of chilling effects. More like being on a hullucinogenic drug. 8/10.

I watched this movie back in 93-94 on TV & it stuck with me....that's saying something. If you haven't seen this movie, watch it. If you have...watch it again, it's worth it.

The cover is misleading/bad advertising. This is def a cult classic horror. Well worth the watch. Glad I ran across it. "I don't want money....I want to hear you screeeeeaaam."
