And you'd think with a title like this one it would be a great work of art!
"Voodoo Woman" is a super-cheap film from American-International Pictures. Now you know it's cheap as instead of giving the project to Roger Corman (who had a knack for making good films out of nothing), Edward Cahn directs this silly mess of a film.
The film is set in voodoo country--a land inhabited by obese people who inexplicably have allowed a totally loony white man (Tom Conway) to live among them with his wife. I say inexplicably because these natives hate outsiders and keep threatening to kill him--then minutes later they're teaching him their deepest secrets! At the same time, an incredibly violent and vicious woman (Marla English) and her male cohort are planning on an expedition to the tribe with whom Conway lives--as the place apparently is loaded with gold. They need a guide, so they convince tough-talking Mike Connors to join them.
By the time Connors and his new 'friends' meet up with Conway and his 'friends', it's obvious that bad things will happen. That's because Conway is truly crazy and plans on using his personal voodoo monster to kill (bummer)--all with very predictable results. All the viewer knows is that it's all pretty confusing and messy and you just want them all to die. Fortunately, most of them do! This film is just plain dumb. Often the plot just made little sense so someone would just kill someone of Marla would turn into a monster--the story itself made little difference. Bad acting, horrible writing and awkward direction--there really isn't anything to recommend this film unless you like bad movies. Pretty dumb...and made worse by the omnipresent soundtrack consisting of bongos--lots and lots of bongos! Yuck!
