Ninon Sevilla -- Ay Yi Yi!
19 August 2007 | by kit-19See all my reviews

This is a really cool voodoo/possession film that you really need to see in a good color wide-screen version. It was filmed in Cuba and Mexico. Like most Mexican films that deal with the possessed, the subject is treated as a reality -- not fantasy. "Chucky," for example, was a major hit with Latinos, because it was considered realistic. But the best part of this thriller is the Cuban Ninon Sevilla. She started out as a dancer, and later became a big star. Her dancing in this feature is about as sexy and alluring as you'll ever see in the 1950's movie. The movie moves along and is all-around entertaining. But that dancing -- fasten your seat belts!
