The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988)

No this isn’t a Carebears episode, this is a horror film by the late Wes Craven. I really liked this movie in theory… zombies created in Haiti by a magic powder and a drug company from America wanting to harvest that drug for themselves as a new anesthesia method. I love Bill Pullman and I wish he was in more stuff, he was really good in this movie too, I just felt like the movie wasn’t really all that scary. I did love some of Craven’s special effects, especially when Pullman was getting pulled underground and the camera angles that were used when he was buried in the coffin. Some of the Government uprising stuff felt like it was thrown in there when it didn’t need to be, because Zombies are cool enough. I also thought that the title of the film was pretty neat, doesn’t sound like your typical horror title. It’s an average movie with some above average effects and camera work.

75/100
