Storyline

When his uncle is killed in a horrible animal attack, American detective Cutter Murdock arrives in South Africa to inherit his ranching empire. Murdock's Johannesburg homecoming begins with an unexpected bang as the Miami-based private eye steps off the plane and a shot rings out - a man standing nearby is killed. Another uncle, Craig, and his son Timothy, were passed over in the will but, in spite of this, have moved into the ranch. Cutter meets up with Marla Oaks, the daughter of an American game trapper and once again an attempt is made on his life. Soon afterward Cutter and his friend Bates are beaten up and left for dead at the bottom of a mine shaft. It turns out that Craig, Timothy and older brother Andrew are part of an international drug-smuggling outfit and the ranch Cutter has inherited is used to grow marijuana. This one makes "The Birds" look like "Citizen Kane." Written by alfiehitchie & tipsyheadrinse

This could have been interesting...but isn't.
18 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This film begins with what might just be the cheapest looking opening credits in film history. Frankly, a home movie of the time might look almost as bad! This did NOT bode well for the rest of the movie.

As for the plot, despite the title, the movie is NOT about Satan Worshipers or Satanism--it apparently is referring to drugs! The film begins with Cutter (George Montgomery) arriving in Africa after inheriting a plantation. However, as soon as he steps off the plane, many wild attempts are made on his life. It turns out he is a private detective and like a typical action hero, he refuses to let the cops do their job and vows to kick butt and ask questions later! However, oddly, soon the 'action' switches to the African interior and little happens other than some routine plantation business. Eventually, the baddies once again try to kill Cutter--but once again they prove to be incompetent idiots.

Unfortunately for the film, Montgomery didn't strike me as the macho action hero type...and believing his routine was not easy--especially since, at times, he seemed half asleep and was a tad old for such a role. It also didn't help that many of the supporting characters were played very poorly. 'Ike' was played with LESS subtlety than Foster Brooks' impersonation of a drunk (though he did have interesting hair). Tippi Hedren was far from her best--possibly the result of a dull script and indifferent direction. Additionally, much of this film comes off like a travelogue--with lots of native scenes and animals as obvious filler. I frankly wonder if perhaps Tippi and George simply starred in this cheapo film to get a trip to South Africa!

So is this film worth seeing? Well, not really. But if you are stuck seeing it, at least you can try something fun. As you hear Montgomery talking, shut your eyes and listen. Doesn't his voice sound a lot like DeForest Kelley's?
