director Joe D'amato mixes erotic action with voodoo in this tale of
jealousy, infidelity and blood sacrifice in the New Orleans' underbelly.
The story begins when a young journalist, Courtney, is assigned to report
details on a successful writer who slipped into oblivion after her husband
was murdered in a voodoo ritual. Courtney takes his lusty wife, Connie,
on the trip to New Orleans. Before long she is drawn into a torrid affair
with one of the locals. Dejected - yet charged with jealousy - Courtney
begins an affair with Carey, the subject of his article. Soon he realizes
that his wife is in grave danger as she has been chosen to be the new
sacrifice for a voodoo ceremony.
note: Joe D'Amato is probably best known for his numerous films with
Laura Gemser (EMANUELLE
IN AMERICA, SEXY
NIGHTS OF THE LIVING DEAD, BLACK
EVA, et al). Although she is not listed in the credits, Ms Gemser
has a surprising guest appearance in this film when she dances at a
bizarre voodoo ceremony (see photo above).
