The Serpent and the Rainbow
The great Wes Craven directs this tale of a Harvard anthropologist (Bill Pullman), in Haiti to research resurrection and black magic.
Dennis Alan (Pullman) travels to Haiti on behalf of a pharmaceutical company who want him to investigate a compound used in Haitian Vodou to create zombies. There he locates a man buried years earlier and resurrected, and falls afoul of local authorities. Continuing his investigation, Alan gets himself in over his head, caught between bokor and houngan—magical practitioners with the power to steal souls.
