Anthropologist Wade Davis’ hotly debated book became the basis for one of Craven’s most divisive chillers. New England professor Bill Pullman visits Haiti to investigate reports of a powerful pharmaceutical tied to rogue magic and/or suspended animation, encountering presumed warlock Zakes Mokae and civil unrest. With Cathy Tyson (Mona Lisa), Paul Winfield (Sounder), Theresa Merritt (The Wiz), and beloved UK genre films staple Michael Gough.
