Katt Shea on

I Walked With a Zombie

Released 1943
Distributor RKO Radio Pictures

Hoping to horn in on Universal’s wartime horror windfall, RKO saddled Val Lewton with titles like this one, but the producer, incapable of making dumb movies, turned it into one of his greatest achievements. Dark, moody, poetic and altogether memorable despite its meager budget.
