Sylvia Walton of Harlem inherits a Jamaican banana plantation and returns to manage it. Since her arrival, there's been no sign of her disinherited half-sister Isabelle, who ran the plantation until their father's death. But Sylvia, her two rival suitors, and her comic- relief servant Percy are disturbed by the constant, growing sound of drums. Meanwhile, in hiding, Isabelle schemes to regain her former place by manipulating local 'obeah' superstition. All-black cast.Written by

Like the other releases from Sack Amusement, this film featured an "all colored cast" and was booked into theaters that catered almost exclusively to black audiences. See more »
When Isabelle Walton (Nina Mae McKinney) tells Percy Jackson (Hamtree Harrington) that she is transferring his soul to a pig, she refers to the pig as "he" - but she's holding the pig upside down and its nipples are clearly visible, showing that the pig is female.
Correction: male hogs do have nipples. See more »
After her father's death, a woman (Ida James) returns to Jamaica to run his banana plantation but her stepsister (Nina Mae McKinney) wants her out of the way and is willing to use voodoo. Film buffs will be more attracted to this film rather than horror fans since McKinney was the star of 1929's Hallelujah. Unless you're interested in seeing a rare horror film with an all black cast then there's really nothing here. Very little horror and very little plot makes for a pretty boring film that actually manages to be slower than Dracula and White Zombie.
