Im Bann des weißen Zombies(1932)

1 Std. 7 Min. | Horror
2,9/5 (bei 104 Stimmen)

Das ist er nun, der erste Zombiefilm aus dem Jahre 1932. Dieser herrliche Klassiker behandelt die Thematik natürlich noch vollkommen anders, als es in der heutigen Zeit der Fall ist. Hier sind die Untoten noch keine menschenfressenden Kreaturen, sondern einfach seelen- und willenlose Sklaven. Alles läuft hier auf die Voodoo-Thematik hin, Hypnose und geheime Pülverchen sind des Rätsels Lösung. Keine Viren, oder irgendwelche geheimnisvolle Seuchen, die Tote zu Monstern machen.

The Viking(1931)

2,4/5 (bei 2 Stimmen)

Originally called White Thunder, American producer Varick Frissell's 1931 film was inspired by his love for the Canadian Arctic Circle. Set in a beautifully black-and-white filmed Newfoundland, it is the story of a rivalry between two seal hunters that plays out on the ice floes during a hunt. Unsatisfied with the first cut, Frissell arranged for the crew to accompany an actual Newfoundland seal hunt on The SS Viking, on which an explosion of dynamite (carried regularly at the time on Arctic ships to combat ice jams) killed many members of the crew, including Frissell. The film was renamed in honor of the dead.

Regie: George Melford, Varick Frissell - Schauspieler: Louise Huntington, Charles Starrett, Robert Abram Bartlett, Wilfred Thomason Grenfell, Arthur Vinton
