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. ,

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?

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!

creepy and scary and due to the fact it was based on a true event and still being practice as we viewing this movie .. rate this movie a 5/5

Posted by Kid_Kryptonite 5 years, 9 months ago

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.
