Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film I Walked with a Zombie

Equal parts beautiful and classy, and underwhelming and dull. While elegant, with the photography capturing a great sense of atmosphere, and the dialogue being oh-so eloquent, it only emotes on a basic level. I often wanted to like this more, but I find it rather bland and tepid in engagement. Even as a pure melodramatic drama, with rather downplayed interaction, it should be more elevated in its dramatic tension.
