Storyline

Thirteen women who were schoolmates send to a swami for their horoscopes. Little do they realize that Ursula, a half-breed Asian, is using her hypnotic powers over the swami and them to lead them or their families to their deaths. It seems that she too went to their school, but was forced to leave by their bigotry, and is exacting revenge. Will she be stopped in time to save Laura's son, Bobby?

Outstanding
13 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was actually a really good movie. So good, it would stand up against todays horror movies as well as easily translate into a remake (rather surprised it hasn't already). A further poignancy is lent to Ursula's confession of her motives--even though "crossing the color line" isn't exactly PC, her speech sums up the history of this country and its treatment of anyone who does not and cannot conform to "whiteness." The movie does resort to "yellow face" (Myrna Loy and the man who plays the Swami), as well as conforming to "Oriental" and "Shady Orient" stereotypes, but the heart of the story is surprising in its realism, and for such a short movie (just an hour), it packs a good amount of thrill.
