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

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.

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

This one is so creepy! I seen it when I was really young and it scared me, Wes Craven is the master...I love how it was actually shot in Haiti 9/10

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."

This was a great movie when it came out--and it still is! Very intense, dealing with voodoo. If you haven't seen it, definitely give it a watch. You won't be sorry--but you might get a little paranoid!

Weird movie but I loved it. Satisfying ending as well. Its not about zombies really if thats what your looking for. I recommend watching it. Its trippy, fun, and after everything a good ending (which is hard to come by now).

Always a classic and still pretty scary. You gotta watch this at least once, it is a cult horror film. I find Zombies lame, I mean cut off their heads and their done. So, not much fear there for me. This movie is an exception because the Zombies don't go around eating other people. This is a true Zombie as far as horror flicks go. Thanks for posting!

Classic Wes Craven and kinda weird how this is based on true events. I'd hate to be given that drug, being dead temporarily sounds like a bad trip. The Voodoo element in Haiti really set the tone and the characters were creepy. Got confusing by the end and not realistic for something based on true events, but I guess that's what they were going for to keep people entertained.

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
