Craven is responsible for some of the most iconic horror franchises. Started out as an underground shocker, but became progressively more commercial throughout his career. Simply inescapable if you're interested in the horror genre.

It's nice to see some classic voodoo zombie, but Craven has trouble building up the atmosphere. There seems to be a bit too much plot to wade through and whenever things get tense, Craven always takes one or two steps back in the next scene. It's not a terrible film, fans of 80s horror are sure to get their kicks, but I'd hoped for a little extra.
