Storyline

Three American college students, Dick, his sister Jessica, and her British boyfriend Kevin, are traveling through Brazil on vacation when Dick, after attending a bizarre voodoo ceremony, develops strange powers. When their jeep breaks down near a small plantation in the jungle outside Rio, the site of a former slave rebellion 150 years ago, Dick uses his powers to raise the dead of six executed Negro slaves whom target the college kids and the residents of the plantation to seek revenge for their deaths.

Not to be compared with Lamberto Bava's 'Demoni 1 & 2'
13 January 2001 | by (Zürich, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This extremely cheap "sequel" to Lamberto Bava's two well crafted 'Demoni' movies (even though only the first one really rocked) has absolutely nothing to do with them. Umberto Lenzi tries to do the best out of a rather old fashioned story about voodoo rituals that - yes - wake the dead. So the demons are rather zombies, but they don't eat their victims - they just split their skulls with axes and/or gouge out their eyes with hooks (ah yeah, and once they also use a pitchfork).

Very similar (concerning production values and gore scenes; and in a way also concerning the story) to Lenzi's made for cable cheapo 'Le Porte dell'Inferno' two years earlier. Horror fans might like this one, but everybody else won't have a good time with this, I suppose.
