Among this horde of living dead slaves includes the innocent young maiden Madeleine Short Parker, played by Madge Bellamy who was one of the leading ladies of the 1920s and 1930s silent film era.

Horror Cult Classic
Although it was not widely praised upon its initial commercial release, White Zombie has evolved into a cult classic over the years amongst fans of the iconic horror actor Bela Lugosi. In fact, if you look closely throughout White Zombie, you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of some of the props, scenery and film sets which featured in Bela Lugosi’s 1931 smash hit Dracula! In addition to cameo appearances from the great halls immortalised within Dracula, keen eyed viewers will also be able to spot the darkened corridors from the 1931 Frankenstein flick starring Boris Karloff, the hanging balcony from the 1923 cinematic adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame starring Lon Chaney, as well as the chairs and set pieces from the 1927 silent horror motion picture The Cat and the Canary.
As well as serving as the first ever feature length zombie film, White Zombie also marked the first of many Victor Halperin horror classics including Supernatural in 1933, Torture Ship in 1937 and Buried Alive in 1939. White Zombie also spawned a sequel, Revolt of the Zombies, that was released in 1936.
