Curse of the Voodoo horror movie poster
Wow. Could this be any more offensive? It opens documentary-style with a voiceover (and a montage of booga-booga tribesmen and wild animals devouring each other) : "Africa: A country that for centuries was hidden from civilized man...Africa: where primitive people still practice evil religions which weave a dark...
Diamonds of Kilimandjaro movie poster
Really more of an adventure (although admittedly not very adventurous) tale than horror, Diamonds of Kilimandjaro is piss-poor in any genre. It's a Tarzan rip-off from Spanish sleaze-meister Jesus Franco, meaning it's an excuse for non-stop nudity, bad dubbing and little else. Katja Bienert is the ever-topless "white goddess"...
Doll Graveyard horror movie
The latest addition to the black killer doll army is, um, this guy: Although he'd receive his own film, Ooga Booga, in 2013, in Doll Graveyard, he doesn’t seem to have a name or any real back story other than he belonged to a girl in 1911 and was buried with her when...
Dust Devil horror movie
Dust Devil is a South African film that's achieved cult status over the years, its quiet desperation, scenic locales and native mysticism reminiscent of another cult fave, Australia's The Last Wave. That's right, this is one o' them thar "artsy" horror movies -- slow, angst-ridden and sexually charged...
Exorcist II: The Heretic horror movie poster
The magical land of Africa once again draws in more white people than Narnia and Middle Earth combined. Most of this film takes place in the United States four years after Regan's (Linda Blair) cock-filled dialogue in the first Exorcist, but there are also extended flashbacks to the adventures...
Exorcist: The Beginning horror movie poster
Cain vs. Abel. Kobe vs. Shaq. O.J. vs. The Man. There have been many epic rivalries in history, but few matched the clusterfuck that was the fourth Exorcist film. That respected director Paul Schrader's original film (Dominion) was shelved in favor of a nearly complete re-shoot (The Beginning) by the...
Eyes of the Mummy horror movie poster
This early silent film from famed German director Ernst Lubitsch shows that, while he would become vehemently anti-Natzi (being Jewish and all), Lubitsch may have had his own racial hang-ups. The film follows Albert Wendland (Henry Liedtke), a British painter, as he "takes a sejour to study in Egypt"....
Female Slaves Revenge movie poster
Female Slaves Revenge is one of those stunningly terrible movies that you almost admire for its steadfast disregard for entertainment value, technical competency, aesthetic beauty, artistic merit, common sense and good taste. Most striking, though, is the fact that, while the plot is ostensibly a topical (albeit exploitive) exploration...
Voodoo Curse: The Giddeh horror movie
Maverick Entertainment strikes again. Another dull, uninspired effort from the company, which is starting to make Full Moon's '90s urban horror output look like Citizen Kane. Likable character actor Glenn Plummer -- of Speed, Saw II, The Day After Tomorrow and er, Showgirls fame -- wrote and directed The Giddeh,...
Grey Knight Ghost Brigade horror movie poster
I suppose you could call this a voodoo and/or zombie film, but it feels more like period drama than horror. As with many voodoo flicks, Grey Knight focuses less on the black people who are the purveyors of said voodoo than the white people who suffer its effects --...
