Walking into this shop with thoughts about inquiring on a tour. We looked around the shop for a little bit. It is very packed in. Looked like a bunch of junk just put about, and the prices were a litt... read more »
We were going in across the street to have a drink and I saw this out of the corner of my eye. I sent my friends to have drinks and went in to see if I could get a reading. They were able to get me in... read more »

The staff needs some customer service training and their signs inside the store are a bit much. You're basically treated like a 4 year old as your walking around the store. If they don't want people in there they should close the shop and not bother having one. Now on the good side of it they do have a nice book selection and other trinkets. Good selection of oils, voodoo dolls, and jewelry as well. If yiu take the rude signs down and help the staff with their customer service it would go along way, owner, whoever you are.
Very snooty for a place that sells glorified souvenirs. I understand the vibe they were trying to go for but still... You walk in and the first thing you are greeted with is a multitude of signs that say "no touching" and "no pictures". There are so many of these, that at one point I tried to pick up a bracelet that I thought was for sale, and a woman who looked like she had dyed her hair pink about a decade ago yelled at me to put it down. Apparently I had missed a sign. Next the cashier, who had eyeliner on to give himself a more mysterious air, yelled at someone on their phone not to take pictures. As far as I could tell he wasn't taking pictures. I know they are trying to give off the feel that they are a real voodoo store, but lets not be foolish. A) you opened your store in a tourist trap B) the "haunted" tour starts outside your store and C) your store is literally connected to a store that sells other stuff. Since there are literally dozens of these stores around I would recommend going to any of them over Rev. Zombies.
I don't know why people are giving this place a bad review. people need to realize the items and things use in this store has some form of spiritual uses. taken picture or touching things that you don't know nothing about could cause or brings harm to you and those you love. many of this things are use for magic or spiritual ritual. some items have spirit. many things has their own energy inside them. so love this place. great energy .
Horribly rude staff. With a million other local places to buy literally everything in this store (not to mention, hate to say it, the internet), it's not worth the negative pretentious attitude. Most sellers in New Orleans will sit and tell you the history of anything you ask about... it's quite nice. This place seemed more interested in policing their wares than informing people who actually wanted to buy things. Here's a hint too... if you're a real practitioner, you probably don't want to go to a place that is clearly purposely right across from where all of the tours start. I also watched 3 people walk out due to getting aggressively yelled at. Typically asking people kindly not to take pictures leads to a better response than someone yelling across the store and then another person descending upon them to snoop over their shoulder (which was extremely amusing to watch). I am sure they have MANY annoying tourists to deal with, but I think you probablyyyyy as a business cost yourself more with lost sales from being rude than you gain from whatever the benefit is of stopping pictures with hostile abruptness. I'd say 90% of people will respect you telling them to stop kindly. Again, I totally get that tourists are infuriating. I just dont understand how literally every other vender in New Orleans has learned how to politely handle them, but Rev. Zombie's hasn't. Idk, just a thought. I personally saw the "No Photos" signs, but with a store containing this many wares, I could see how someone might legitimately not see the signs, despite their proliferous presence. I have seen it happen in many places, this was just one of the worst ways I've ever seen it handled. It just really irks me to see people in the sale industry stoop to that level, especially when 99% of what they're selling is cheap tourist crap meant to look like authentic voodoo pieces.
Cool spot. This is were you meet for an awesome haunted/ghost tour walk through the quarter. It was a lot of fun! We had an older guy that walked with a walking stick, he was really good!
