Steve's Church-less Movie Of The Week: Part Two ...

That Cannibal Holocaust movie is damn good but the whole thing, especially the authentic animal slaughtering, leaves me with a fowl taste in my mouth, like a theatrical equivalent of brushing your teeth and then drinking orange juice. The experience is moving and shocking but afterwards just feels wrong.


So here's an old Bela Lugosi potboiler of a film for your punk ass.


Enjoy ...




Yoinked from the almighty wikipedia, the Vintage Horror Films blog, and Sharetv.org ...


"Voodoo Man is a 1944 American film directed by William Beaudine. It was shot in a mere seven days beginning October 16 1943 and was the last of Bela Lugosi's 9 Monogram features, but released 4 months prior to the 8th film, Return of the Ape Man.


Lone female motorists traveling a particular highway have been mysteriously vanishing without a trace. They are victims of a weird trap created by Dr. Marlowe, played by Bela Lugosi. With the help of John Carradine as Bela's half-witted henchman Toby, and George Zucco as Nicholas the Voodoo Priest, Dr. Marlowe uses his captive women in a bizarre attempt to bring his beautiful wife back from a state of zombie-like coma, or rather a living death.




Bela Lugosi turns in a fine performance as Dr. Richard Marlowe, desperately trying to bring his zombie wife back to life by transferring the life force of another woman into her body. Zombies abound, but not the George Romero type of flesh-eating ones. Veteran character actor John Carradine turns in a quirky performance as Toby, Dr. Marlowe's manservant. He's such a delight to watch on screen as he takes a minor role and brings it center stage.


The rest of the cast is solid as well. However, the voodoo sequences where the high priest does his evil chants in order to work his magic are terribly hokey as the priest utters a series of nonsensical syllables that sound like he's making them up off the top of his head."
