Movie Info

Adapted from Night of the Living Dead scripter John Russo's pulp horror novel, this is a more old-fashioned living-dead romp in the mode of White Zombie. The story is set in the Deep South, where a diabolical, machete-wielding voodoo priest (Candyman's Tony Todd) is busily turning migrant farm workers into flesh-eating, living-dead slaves. His plans are disrupted by the arrival of two college students searching for a missing colleague -- who turns out to have been one of the priest's earlier zombie experiments. Good performances (especially from the menacing Todd) and creepy atmosphere are diluted by slack pacing, but the gory finale packs a horrific punch.more

Audience Reviews for Voodoo Dawn

Very atmospheric southern Voodoo tale. Similar to Dead and Buried or Serpent and the Rainbow, but in the south. Gore is sparse, but the characters and story keeps it moving until the end where there is a fantastic showdown with a demon of voodoo that will impress anyone who loves great practical creature effects
