Boring
18 July 2006 | by TikkinSee all my reviews

Voodoo Dawn started of looking promising, but as usual for a low-budget horror flick went downhill from there. The opening scene on the boat whets your appetite and leaves you wanting more. However, after this things soon become desperately dull. There's a lot of walking around and talking and something about a witch doctor. The scene in the house could have been creepy, but it just wasn't. After this, things plod along at such a slow pace that eventually I had enough and switched it off. There were a few scenes shot in darkness in which I THINK someone was killed, but it's hard to tell since you can't see a thing.

Avoid this junk, it's far too boring.
