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>

Chesty Experience
17 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this movie and couldn't help noticing June's cleavage throughout the picture and wondered why the FCC wasn't reported to the local station. Anyway I loved all the sexual scenes in this picture. The swimming scene when June boldly pulls of the top part of her bathing suit and does a back splash under the murky water to cover the nipples.The climax of the movie is when June and Hubby have a private dinner and June gets up and dances with her hips going one way and her boobs going the other.To enhance the enjoyment of this breast display watch this movie with the sound off and watch alone. As for the Voodoo in this movie, Who Cares! I watched this movie several times not knowing or caring what the plot is about but wondering where June Lives!!
