Side note:
20 April 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I did watch it and although I thought it wouldn't, it kept my attention. However, the above user and tagline are incorrect. She doesn't sell her soul if you recall where she makes the bargain with Baron. The white girl is her payment to him, for now. When she offered her soul remember he laughs and says "what do I want/need with a soul, I have something else in mind". That being said, I wonder what happened to her. She seemed like she had the looks for the time, although she wasn't even 30 yet when she filmed that yet she looked quite a bit older.
