I Walked With a Zombie (1943), Jacques Tourneur.

Young Canadian nurse from Ottawa leaves snowy winter behind and accepts position in the Caribbean. OK, well, I was hooked...

So what if the locals sing calypso songs about how your new boss is from a messed up English family who keeps a zombie trapped in a tower? Think about the palm trees! Go for a swim!

Very moody and atmospheric, a slowly unraveling romantic mystery. Somehow very soothing and enjoyable. I'm going to go pour me some rum now.
