Descripción del producto
Wes Craven dirige esta terrorífica historia de un trabajador de la noche en el mortífero mundo del vudú. Un antropólogo de Harvard es enviado a Haití para investigar sobre unos extraños polvos de los cuales se dice que tienen el poder de salvar vidas que van hacia la muerte. En esta búsqueda por encontrar la milagrosa droga, los científicos cínicos desaprueban la rara visión jamás vista de la existencia de zombies y ritos sangrientos. Basada en las verdaderas experiencias de la vida de Wade Davis y rodada en Haití, es una escalofriante excursión dentro de la magia negra y lo sobrenatural.

One of Craven's best made films, "The Serpent and the Rainbow" followed in the wake of "Nightmare on Elm Street" and didn't do quite as well at the box office due to the expectations set up by that film. Audiences came to see another "Nightmare on Elm Street" but what they got was a horror movie that was shot through with the political realities that Haiti faced during the revolution to free themselves from dictator "Baby Doc" Duvalier. There's a strong atmosphere of dread that hangs over the film like a massive cloud adding to the tension of Craven's film. For its time (and this point in Craven's career) "The Serpent and the Rainbow" was a daring move on the director's part.
The high def transfer looks nice and is fairly true (as I recall) to the theatrical exhibition of the film. The presentation is most probably the result of the cinematography choices of director Craven The presentation is relatively clean and the interpositive used for this transfer looks quite nice.
The audio is very active and will pull you right in to what you see on screen. The DTS-HD Master Audio stereo soundtrack sounds excellent.
Shout Factory (under its Scream imprint) has done a very nice job of providing us with a deluxe edition for this classic film. Star Bill Pullman provides us with an entertaining and witty commentary track hosted by Rob Galluzzo. We also get an excellent 24 original featurette on the making of the film. Finally we get a stills gallery as well as a pair of trailers (theatrical and TV) for the film. While I would have liked to see this expanded to include a documentary on the history of voodoo and zombies (not the kind from "The Walking Dead" but the type from films like "White Zombie") as well as a featurette on the author of the non-fiction book the film was based on, what we do get is excellent.
This is a very good presentation from Shout Factory of an overlooked classic from Craven.
The special effects are a little distracting. They're very much in line with what you see in Craven's other films from this era, like "Nightmare on Elm Street." They're necessary in that they make this a horror film instead of just a tense drama. But sometimes the effects are too literal, too real-looking, to be taken seriously. I really would have liked to see Wes Craven do what Peter Jackson did in "Heavenly Creatures" and create vividly hallucinatory fantasia scenes.
Sidenote: The book "Serpent and the Rainbow" by Wade Davis, a Harvard ethnobotanist, is nothing like the movie but perhaps even more interesting. Not dry, really well written and interesting.
Never a dull moment, nice cinematography, with some very effectively shot scenes. Zakes Mokae crawls under your skin as a convincing statist voodoo villain. Although Bill Pulman shows more range than in any other roll I've seen him depict, his lead characterization is still much too smugly skating on the surface. I think a deep crevice of emotion was required, and Pulman a poor casting choice. While all the characters were rather shallow and failing to inspire much empathy, the story narrative was fairly fascinating and aggressively nimble.
The crucial failure of the film was the cartoonish scattershot ending, out of step with the film's prior serious, realistic tone and cinematic visual effects. Was like Elm St' Dream Warriors breakdanced into The Exorcist. A more visceral and emotionally accessible lead, plus a more realistic stark ending would have solidified an otherwise solid effort.
Yes I said but this looks lagitamet !
She walked out half way threw but I stayed & she would pick me up infront after move rapped.
And boy was I glad I stayed ! This film has only gotten better with time. Along with its spot on casting it was shot with a classicle international sensibility that is timeless . Makes it easier to over look some of the cheesy soundtrack .
