* 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/NightOfTheLivingDead'' over thirty years after this movie.

* BodyHorror: Much of this movie doesn't age well, but this trope is used for a thoroughly chilling moment. While Madeleine fell directly into her non-death after taking a full dose of Legendre's potion, Beaumont realizes what's up after taking only a sip of the poisoned wine. The result for him is even worse--he changes into a zombie ''slowly'', while being awake and aware the whole time, but unable to talk. The scene where a twitching, wild-eyed Beaumont just manages to extend a hand in supplication to Legendre, only for Legendre to brusquely brush it away, is quite disturbing.

* VoodooZombie: Legendre's slaves. They are classic voodoo zombies--not reanimated corpses, but living people who have been enslaved by voodoo hypnotic magic. The later idea of zombies as the "living dead" or reanimated corpses was basically invented by George Romero in ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'' over thirty years after this movie.
