Maria is married to an abusive husband, and one day, she decides to run off with her secret lover: her husband's gardener, Roberto. Her cousin overhears their plan and kills Roberto with his car. Maria takes his body and performs a spell so that they will meet and she will love him when they become reincarnated into their next lives. Once they are reborn adults, Maria pursues Robert, but Robert is already married and doesn't remember her. Frustrated, she goes into the rain forest to an evil sorcerer, Rafau, who has a midget tribe of cannibals as his minions, but once she has lost her virginity, she must give her body to him. She accepts, but when she refuses to come back to him, Rafau casts a spell on Robert, who becomes catatonic. Now Maria, Robert's wife, and her sorcerer father team up to stop Rafau before Robert dies and Maria must be sacrificed. Written by Helltopay27

Bizarre and funny (not in a good way)
21 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too got this movie from the Tales of Voodoo double disc. The movie itself is a bizarre mish-mash of Asian rituals, repressed love, and sterile sex scenes. From the box I expected an Asian cannibal movie, but cannibals have very little to do with this flick.

The story is some convoluted mess about reincarnated loves, rituals of the occult, and a snake god. The main character is looking for her long lost love who was killed 20 years earlier. Why only 20 years? Trust me, it is not worth it to delve into the specifics of this movie's plot lines. Through it all we get horny cousins, Asian men in Speedos, and 2 old wizards cut straight out of the worst old kung fu movie. The whole thing is a bit of a blur since the captioning was not formatted to fit the television screen.

The most unique part of the film was the mysterious white fuzzy dot that would cover the female pubic area during the sex scenes. In one particularly acrobatic scene the little white dot gets quite the workout. There must be copies of this movie floating around that provide the fullest female frontal this side of porn. Breasts are a plenty, but all full frontal is fuzzed out.

I knew going in the Curse would be more of a curiosity than anything else. It was fun to see what Philipinos view as sexy and scary. The obvious ties to Asian beliefs are interesting, if not hard to follow. Gorehouds avoid since this one provides very little blood, save for the last scene.
