After the death of his uncle, Graham inherits his Arts collection and his beloved wife Sarah decides to keep a weird fetish and gives the name of Charlie Boy.

When the persons in the picture die, Graham tries to find a way to save Sarah and him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?

Goofs

When Graham is slowed down by the police, a white Mini is seen parked in the distance on the opposite side of the road, but isn't there in the next shot. The reason is that it is Sarah's Mini that is being pulled out of the ditch by the tow truck and the car should have not been in shot when Graham approached the crash scene. See more »

One of the Hammer House of Horror TV show

An African voodoo doll has the power to cause death. A man unwittingly sets it in motion but doesn't really catch on until most of his family has died from "accidents" and him and his wife are targeted next...

The tale is VERY familiar but this is very well done (for a TV show). It's well-acted, very well-directed (there are some striking visuals) and puts in a few twists that I didn't see coming. Also the killings are bloody (but not really graphic) and shocking--and the ending is really gruesome.

Worth catching--it's only 50 minutes long.
