Voodoo Doo Doo
25 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

A young beautiful wild woman is about to marry a very rich man somewhere in the islands (Haiti or someplace like that, perhaps?). What messes things up is an arrangement that was made almost at birth. She is supposed to marry a macho guy who has little respect for boundaries. He crashes the wedding an takes her away. The rich guy doesn't take this sitting down. He connects with some kind of voodoo master and gets a doll made. It is sin the image of the reckless man who stole his bride. When he squeezes the doll, the man experiences incredible pain. They bring in a doctor, but there is no medical explanation for it. The young woman, who has grown up in this environment, knows what is going on and comes to the house. From then on, everything gets all confusing and hard to follow. The people we are supposed to sympathize with are so awful that I started pulling for the guy who bought the doll.
