Synopsis for "Voodoo Island"Edit

A pair of grave robbers find that they have gotten more than they bargain for when they happen to be trying to loot the very grave yard that the Zombie happens to be staying. The zombie then attacks them before they can defile any other graves. Killing one of the robbers, the Zombie sends the other would-be grave robber fleeing. The Zombie then has a flash of memory about his life before becoming a zombie, and has a brief flash that Voodoo was the cause of his current state, and rationalizes that it would be voodoo that could free him. Breaking loose of the cemetary gates, the Zombie wanders into New Orleans where Mardi Gras is well underway. As the grave robber reports his failure to his employer he is shot in cold blood and his body is ordered to be dumped in a river.

Meanwhile, the Zombie has wandered to a boat headed for Haiti and secrest himself into the cargo hold, completely unaware that his own daughter is boarding the same ship in search for clues behind her fathers disappearance, believing that Voodoo had some central part in her fathers disappearance. Arriving in Port-Au Prince, Haiti, Donna Garth departs the ship to meet up with her fathers friend Anton Carter, she misses the Zombie disembarking from the ship, sending everyone witness to it's arrival to flee in horror.

Meeting with Carter, Donna is unaware that she is being watched by a man in the employ of a Professor Rickard, this man named Hackman believes that she would be perfect for his bosses experiments. Returning to Rickard's lab, he arrives just in time to see Rickard test his latest batch of serium on a local woman, turning her into a giant spider-creature, however the serum proves unstable and the horror quickly dies. While back at the home of Anton Carter, Donna gives him a photograph of an amulette of Damballa, knowing it had something to do with her fathers disapperance. Carter tells her he will study it and get back to her. After she leaves, he admits to his servant that he knew what the amulet was the whole time and wanted to spare her the horror of knowing that her father could possibly be a zombie. Going outside, Carter is confronted by the Zombie who struggles to introduce itself as Simon Garth, verifying to Carter's horror, that Garth is indeed a zombie.
