VBS’s Haitian Nzambies

Vice TV just finished up running a fascinating 6 part documentary, Haitian Nzambies, in which Hamilton Morris (of Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia) travels to Port-Au-Prince in search of a Vodou solution rumored to create actual living zombies: people so close to death that they are deemed dead by physicians, but are actually alive. During his early research he is taken to a voodoo ceremony where a woman spazzes on a possessed chair and he is told that if he has sex on Thursday anytime for the rest of his life, he will be killed. That’s the beginning. Watch if you’re into corpses, ritual sacrifice, ember eating, black magick, and Vice-style seeking for an answer to the zombie powder quest.
