Rick looks for Bianca and is seduced and convinced by her to join a sect that worships the diabolic Camba, while the health of Donna is threatened by Francis and Bianca.

Notably uninterested in parts
17 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man can't sleep because this woman keeps appearing in his dreams... one day he sees a doll that looks like her in a shop window, and from there is able to search the actual woman out. It turns out she's a witch and she gets him to randomly join a Satanic cult, despite the fact that he has a fiancé to take care of and he has no real reason to be intrigued by her except that she's young and blond.

Basically sounds like typical B-fare to me, though I warn you the tone is much like what I use above... willing to tell the story yet notably uninterested in parts.

It's an okay flick if you are the type to dig the genre, but it's definitely not for the easily bored or the too serious. More of that campy "laugh at it with drunken friends" fare.
