I Walked With A Zombie (1943)
Written by Curt Siodmak & Ardel Wray / Directed by Jacques Tourneur
The Val Lewton/Jacques Tourneur collaborations are fantastic pieces of moody gothic atmosphere, period. Lewton and Tourneur's intense attention to detail, camera movement, light, shadow, and sound make for films that create haunting and disturbing images to this day. The story and characters of I Walked With A Zombie may not be as strong as those in Cat People but the filmmaking is just as strong and impressive, aging fantastically.
