|I Walked With A Zombie (1943)
Our theme of Caribbean Dreams was well represented by the 1943 film I Walked with a

place in the Caribbean on a sugar plantation where Conway's wife (Christine Gordon) has a
mysterious affliction . Dee is hired to be her nurse and becomes drawn into the island's dark
culture of voodoo and zombies. Is the mistress of the plantation a zombie? Are there dark
secrets? Quite atmospheric and well shot for such an old film. Festivities continued at a
nearby Friendly's. Fun evening.
Join us next month for Mr. Holmes (2015) starring Ian McKellen.

Looking forward to a great new year and a great line-up!
