Shocking in several ways...
23 October 2003 | by (CanadianFunkMob, CANADA) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie last night. This flick (as far as I can find) is only available on VHS - I've got a version with an alternate title "Color Of Love". I have to say that Marlene Clark as "Jenny" gave a very good performance, the most believable in the film. If you are an animal activist, you may be disturbed by some of the rituals performed in the movie - although they insinuate situations, you don't actually see any animals abused....As a person who is not very religious or has an interest in voodoo, the thing that drew me to this movie was the funky music throughout the movie. One scene will have hardcore tribal music at a sacrificing ritual

  • then cut to a bar scene will an old man movin' to a break in "Funky


But"!!! Worth watching for Marlene Clark's performance, and if you like to expand past MGM's Soul Cinema series into the odder flicks around the era...
