From horror master Wes Craven comes “The Serpent and the Rainbow.” The story is based on the true story of anthropologist Wade Davis (Bill Pullman) ― who discovered a Haitian drug that induces a zombie-like state.

“Serpent” is a suspenseful psychedelic odyssey that delves into the bizarre world of voodoo. Unfortunately, much of the film is rough and disjointed. Also stars Zakes MokaePaul Winfield and Michael Gough. Rated R.
