Greedy corporate executive Lawrence Bauer (Dennis Christopher) has taken over from ethical, older CEO Tom Hart. He's successful because he's been consulting voodoo priestess Matilde (Pam Grier) for the past year. The voodoo gods now demand that he sacrifice body parts for giving him wealth, but he refuses to do so. Instead, he kills Matilde when she threatens to send zombies after him. He thinks switching places with Ed the janitor (Tracey Walter) will throw the voodoo gods off his track, but Ed knows more about voodoo than Bauer realizes.
