So in the one im thinking of there is a woman who is in a voodoo trance and dying slowly. There is also a very tall thin black man with totally white eyes and he is also a zombie. I also remember them trying to sneak the dying woman to a voodoo practitioner. But i dont think Bela Lugosi was in it ?

The one You're thinking of is I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE (1942)

THE INVISIBLE MAN'S REVENGE (1944). Decent cast in here; John Carradine, Lester Matthews (THE RAVEN, THE WEREWOLF OF LONDON), Gale Sondergaard (SPODER WOMAN) and Evelyn Ankers (looking lovely , but not a whole lot to do) and while You can see strings being used, the invisibility special effects are still pretty good.
What makes this difficult is the Invisible Man himself; Claude Rains in the original had temper outbursts from the Monocaine, but Jon Hall, right from the very first scene is just a nasty, demanding unrealistic ball busting Prick!

Such a "Richard with Ears", that You'll want to buy a whole case of Milk Bones for the Dog who takes him out. **

You're very Welcome

THE GORILLA (1939). 20th Century Fox film that looks a lot like a Monogram, this is the dark and stormy night in the big house with a madman on the loose. Lionel Atwill receives threats from a killer as his niece and her fiancee arrive . He hires a Detective firm for protection and retain his household staff. While Patsy Kelly gets off some good wisecracks, her screaming is almost akin to nail on the blackboard.
Even more sadly, the Detective Firm/"Comedy Relief" comes from The Ritz Brothers, whose endless mugging/pratfalling/buffoonery is really too painful to endure. Mrs FD has said over the years that without the Brothers, TG is a pretty good little film.
Also for Genre fans is Bela Lugosi as another Butler, but to be honest, I find most of the laughs in the film come from him. **
