Storyline

In the eerie backdrop of the lousiana bayou, former inmate Frank(Michael Madsen, "Reservoir Dogs,"Donnie Brasco") sees the opportunity of a lifetime in the form of cursed cash. But this cash has a price of its own. Avenging the death of his brother at the hands of police officer Sam Merchant, Frank, with Jezabelle ( Rosanna Arquette, " Pulp Fiction,"Nowhere To Run"), form a sadistic plan of vengeance mixing violent rituals and voodoo curses. But Merchant's son A.J. ( Balthazar Getty, "lost highway," natural Born Killers") escapes almost certain death. Now, in order to save his family and himself, A.J. is pitted into a deadly standoff with ancient evil. Delve into the underworld of voodoo magic and the occult and pray for your soul.

A CONFUSED STORY CONFUSEDLY PRESENTED
23 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film is the first directorial effort of Andrzej Sekula, an excellent cinematographer (AMERICAN PSYCHO, OLEANNA, PULP FICTION, RESERVOIR DOGS), but it is difficult to determine what his aim might be in this instance. The viewer is greeted by an indecipherable script, marred by a surfeit of sub-plots. There are fine players in the cast: Rosanna Arquette, Michael Madsen, James Russo; these all require aggressive direction, which is lacking (Russo's performance is particularly embarrassing). Sekula works behind the camera, and virtually each scene features creativity and interesting lighting, all of a piece with his other work. It would seem, however, that his skills are best applied as a contributor to other directors' (Mamet, Tarantino) achievements. This work is an expression of nothing.
