Voodoo Revenge
13 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Barry Atwater stars as Alex Brandon, a plantation owner in the British West Indies who is planning on marrying a woman named Sheila Trent(played by Susan Strasberg) who ends up humiliating him and breaking his heart on their wedding day by running off with a former love named Raphael(played by Alejandro Rey). Enraged and despondent, he seeks revenge by using a voodoo doll to kill Raphael and win Sheila back, but this plan ends disastrously as one would expect... Mostly blah tale has a good cast but a stale plot, which ends about the way viewer would expect, though perhaps not hoped, as nobody here engenders much sympathy or interest. Murray Matheson comes off best in small role.
