    Which was the first Hollywood movie made on zombies?

    White Zombie, directed by Victor Halperin and premiered in 1932, is widely regarded as the first zombie film. In the late 1930s and 1940s, several zombie films were released.

    White Zombie is a 1932 American pre-Code horror film directed by Victor Halperin and produced independently by Edward Halperin. The script by Garnett Weston is based on William Seabrook’s novel The Magic Island, and it tells the story of a young woman who is turned into a zombie by an evil voodoo master. Madge Bellamy plays the zombie master ‘Murder’ Legendre, and Bela Lugosi plays his victim. Joseph Cawthorn, Robert W. Frazer, John Harron, Brandon Hurst, and George Burr MacAnnan round out the cast.

    The film was shot in large part on the Universal Studios property, with props and settings borrowed from other horror films of the time. The picture debuted to mixed reviews in New York, with critics praising the over-the-top plot and poor acting. While the picture was a commercial success as an independent production, it was not as well-received as other horror films of the time.

    The film is widely regarded as the first feature-length zombie film, as well as the originator of cinematic voodoo. In 1936, a sequel, Revolt of the Zombies, was released. The movie has had a more good reception in recent years. Some critics have complimented the film’s atmosphere and compared it to Val Lewton’s 1940s horror films, while others have expressed reservations about the acting quality.
