Trivia

The demon in this movie, Baron Samedi, is the same demon summoned in 1974's zombie film, Sugar Hill. Respectively, the clothing and characteristics of Samedi and the requirements and warnings concerning his summoning are also similar, reflecting his description in Haitian folklore. See more »

Yes, Slow, But ...
8 April 2021 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Yes, true to the old style zombies this movie just trudges along. A '60s Haitian worker decades earlier in the storyline is purposefully given Pufferfish tetrodotoxin with an abrading additive through his skin. He dies, sort of, perhaps just heart rate suspension, anyway he's buried then dug up to work as slave "Zombie" style labor in a sugar plantation. Decades later a young female relative is in a French school where she tells the tale of voodoo practice in Haiti which eventually plays into turning our storyline into a "misadventure". Lots of jumping back 'n' forth between the two locations/periods. Good accuracy in the basic narrative, but drags & ending is a little weird.
