Jess Tells His Story Again
6 November 2004 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Voodoo Passion" is another terrific Jess Franco film, which, not surprisingly, will probably be enjoyed mostly by Franco fans. He remade the film in 1982 as "Mil Sexos Tiene La Noche", and he had previously filmed the story in the early 1970's as "Nightmares Come at Night", so anyone familiar with these other two films will find that "Voodoo Passion" holds little surprises in terms of plot. What sets this version apart from the other films is the overblown sexiness and lustfulness that flows throughout, much to the credit of the female cast members. Ada Tauler, as the innocent bride subjected to recurring nightmares, plays her role as victim quite well despite the fact that she is visually a sex bomb. Karine Gambier, on hand as Tauler's nymphomanicial sister-in-law, exaggerates her libidinous performance to great effect; her character is fun and frothy, but this does not mean Gambier falls short in the acting department. Vicky Adams struts her stuff in several nude dance/voodoo ritual ceremony scenes, usually set to jazz music, and these scenes are quite extended, Franco style, but are never boring and, of course, they are highly erotic and fetishistic. Aida Vargas literally pops in and out so briefly she doesn't even have time to undress. Jack Taylor, one of the few male cast members, is on hand in his sleazy bad-guy role, a very similar role to the one he had in the simultaneously-filmed Franco film "Swedish Nympho Slaves", aka "Sexy Sisters."

The DVD transfer is beautiful and letter boxed, so Franco fans can enjoy another masterpiece of trash cinema from one of the best in the business.
