Trivia

The characters in the film continually (incorrectly) refer to the "ghouls" when they are actually "zombies". Technically, a "ghoul" is an undead person or demon who eats the corpses of dead people, while a "zombie" is a formerly deceased person who returns to life, usually reanimated through magic, to eat the flesh the living. This is intentional on the part of the filmmakers, because in the late 1700's and early 1800's when the film takes place, the word "zombie" had not yet made it into common English vernacular. The word first shows up in English in an 1819 history of Brazil, which says that Zambi "is the name for the Deity, in the Angolan tongue." In 1872 a dictionary of Americanisms includes a more familiar definition: "Zombi, a phantom or a ghost, not unfrequently heard in the Southern States in nurseries and among the servants." See more »
