White Zombie (1932)

In the olden days, zombies in film were the result of voodoo magic, or rather the utilization of neurotoxins and poisons—à la White Zombie. Myth? Try fact! In the early 1980s, a Haitian man named Clairvius Narcisse returned to his village after having been presumed dead and buried nearly twenty years before. Narcisse related his strange ordeal to friends and family, revealing it was his own brother (embittered over a land dispute) who had slipped him a poison that induced a comatose state mimicking death. Exhumed from his grave thereafter, an alleged sorcerer took a stupefied Narcisse back to a sugar plantation with other “zombies,” putting them to work and administering regular doses of a neurologically debilitating chemical.
