‘White Zombie’ – 7 Horror Movies That Inspired Band Names
If you haven’t seen the film ‘White Zombie,’ you’re missing out on one of the most important classics in horror history. Widely considered to be the first full-length zombie flick, the film stars master of horror and original ‘Dracula’ star Bela Lugosi as an evil voodoo master who controls the minds of his victims through supernatural powers. Roused by an uncontrollable jealousy over a woman he cannot have, a plantation owner desperately hires Lugosi to use his mind control abilities on her, but of course, things don’t go as planned.
Inspired by the Lugosi film, Rob Zombie and his band named themselves White Zombie and quickly became one of the pioneers of industrial metal. Before embarking on a successful solo career in both music and film, Rob Zombie released four full-length albums with White Zombie, which are now considered cult classics in their own rite.
