After Cat People, Tourneur and producer Val Lewton reteamed with film editor Mark Robson and composer Roy Webb for another shiver-inducing tale of the supernatural, forging the screen template for zombie depictions a quarter-century before it was refitted with the walking/living dead. The sunny Caribbean provides little respite for nurse Frances Dee as she proposes radical therapy for spellbound Christine Gordon while pining for the latter’s husband Tom Conway.
