They don't call it Voodoo in the show, but that's what it is. Anyway, it's a pretty standard episode for the series with some very unusual elements (the only episode featuring supernatural) and a lot of obvious yet convoluted plot twists. Spencer is as relaxed and as slick as ever. Dumas gets a little annoying with his "jokes" and quirks after a while, but does prove useful. Pacing is fine and the mystery is not that bad, but the plot takes too much unnecessary turns to get to a standard conclusion. Actors are fine if a bit lethargic. The actor who plays the preacher steals every scene his in, though. Atmosphere is not bad and there are occasional stylistic use of light and shadows and simple but effective special effects (like fire that won't die out). There are only few very short action scenes, mostly featuring fistfights or XXL shooting a bad guy. The final scenes are a bit campy, but this is a TV show, after all. Housekeeper Maria and the police inspector have small roles in this episode. The sound, for some reason, isn't that good, but it could be a copy's fault. There are some rare light comedy moments. If the show went all the way with the horror elements this could have been the best episode by far. As it is, it's still a must for the fans of the show, and a decent introduction for those who are interested to see what Bud had been doing since he left westerns and buddy movies.
