A happy rediscovery!
5 February 2005 | by (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) – See all my reviews

I recently had the opportunity to acquire an old tape copy of this film. I did not remember much about it as almost 20 years must have passed since I saw it; but, although I clearly recollected it as a low budget production, I also remembered it as one of the better films based on the concept of reincarnation, which provided a heady mix of the atmosphere of old New Orleans, Voodoism and Creole culture, together with quite a spicy and interesting story line. In addition I particularly remembered the sound track - something I seldom do as I am a predominantly visual person - which featured some excellent jazz music in keeping with the locale. I was therefore happy to accept this chance, and was not disappointed when I watched the film again after all these years. Certainly I became aware of many faults which I may not have even noticed when I first saw it, but on balance I felt it made much more rewarding viewing than many of the comparable dramas released today. I did not expect too much as I believe this was originally regarded as a B movie, predominantly intended for midnight showings in regular cinemas or perhaps for showing at drive-in theatres. However, for the ultimate test of how I rated this film, I can report that I certainly intend to convert my tape to a VCD disk where some of the inevitable video noise on my very old and rather battered tape can be filtered out. I can also say that, should this film be chosen for digital remastering and release as a DVD, I will certainly be in the market to purchase a copy. When a chance arises I would recommend any lovers of period pieces to watch this film.
