Storyline

J. Peter Wells, an expose writer, arrives on an island off the coast of South America (no country identified), to complete a book on voodoo, ju-ju,macumba, mojo and other cult beliefs, which he believes is responsible for unsolved murders on this island. Wealthy land-owner Venis de Vias warns him against stirring up the natives, especially any efforts to lessen the prestige of the reigning VooDoo Queen Mama Rata-loi. The arrival of Wells' daughter, Sara, and her husband, Warren, on a honeymoon trip, starts the pot to boiling and making the natives restless. Most restless of all is Mama Rata-loi, who asserts her powers and puts a spell on Venus de Viasa. The next thing honeymooner Warren knows is that he is trussed up and about to become the one chosen to die in a voodoo ceremony. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

if you like movies about voodoo, you may enjoy this one
4 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Val Lewton movies about voodoo were done much better but then they had a much larger budget than this movie.

Not bad considering its obvious lack of a budget.

The acting is only passable but the beauty of Ziva Rodann and especially June Wilkinson is what makes this movie watchable.

There are some serious questions about voodoo and its applications asked in this movie and that is a kind of refreshing attitude of the subject.

June Wilkinson made a couple of other movies like CAREER GIRL and especially PARTY GIRLS FOR THE CANDIDATE costarring Mamie Van Doren and Ted "Caddyshack" Knight of all people!
