The Serpent and the Rainbow (1980) Review:

Maybe not his very best, The Serpent and the Rainbow are nevertheless one of Wes Craven’s finest movies. This film is also the one which pretty much started the career of actor Bill Pulman (The Grudge, Lost Highway, Brain Dead). The film is almost entirely set in Haiti and is filled with dramatic landscapes, beautiful colors, crazy carnivals, and tribal music. So needless to say that the atmosphere is perfectly set for a film about Voodoo and black magic such as this one.
