Information and Film Reviews for The Serpent and the Rainbow the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

A good, interesting book (by Harvard ethnobotanist Wade Davis) offering serious speculation on the possible existence and origin of zombies in Haiti was hacked and slashed into a cheap Wes Craven-ized screen semblance of itself. And a shame it is: the result is racist, disrespectful, exploitative, and superficial.
