I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (1943)

Made when Val Lewton was head of RKO’s horror division this, in my humble opinion, is Jacques Tourneur best film. I know there are a lot of CAT PEOPLE fans out there but this has one of my all-time favorite moments in film as a zombie slowly follows, though never attacks, Frances Dee through a corn field. Try doing a corn maize after watching this flick, I double dog dare you. Val Lewton never liked horror films and the combination of his attempt at a different take and the hiring of Tourneur to make what was intended as an interpretation of “Jane Eyre” created a masterpiece that is as equally patient and as it is horrific and unnerving. This is a flawless masterpiece.

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
