Voodoo Dawn is a 1991 American horror film directed by Steven Fierberg and starring Tony Todd, Raymond St. Jacques, Theresa Merritt and Gina Gershon. It was written by Jeffrey Delman, Evan Dunsky, Thomas Rendon and John A. Russo, and produced by Steven D. Mackler.
The story is set in the Deep South, where a diabolical, machete-wielding voodoo priest (Tony Todd) is busily turning Haitian migrant farm workers into flesh-eating, zombie slaves. However, his plans are disrupted by the arrival of two college students searching for a missing colleague who turns out to have been one of the priest's earlier zombie experiments.

Voodoo Dawn was shot in South Carolina.
Variety called it "an atmospheric supernatural thriller for genre fans". Nigel Honeybone of HorrorNews.Net wrote that it should be watched by horror fans based on the novelty value of having been written by Russo. Writing in The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle said, "Though acting and production value are solid, the script is outdated by about forty years and assumes we want to see more witch doctor than zombie."
