* VoodooZombie: Legendre's slaves. They are classic voodoo zombies--either living people or reanimated corpses who have been enslaved by voodoo magic to serve a master. The later idea of zombies as monsters out to eat people was basically invented by George Romero in ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968'' over thirty years after this movie.
