Trivia

Producer Alex Gordon attended the Burbank, California premiere with Ruth Gordon, his fiancée at the time. Ruth responded to VOODOO WOMAN by returning her engagement ring to Alex, and dismissed the film as "trash". The two quickly reconciled, however, and would later go on to collaborate on similar low-budget film projects as husband and wife, with Ruth as scriptwriter. See more »

I can't say enough bad things about this movie.
2 October 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

There is absolutely nothing on the positive side that I can say about this film. It was bottom-of-the-barrel in every single department. At least some prints today are old and scratched so at least all we have to do is hear this tripe. Still, I must apologize for the mistake I made about Conway being from Ohio in my last review, I was thinking of the wrong guy. This movie is still a pile of trash, though. I don't think you'll care who's who by the time this is over.
