Description by OLDIES.com:

Boris Karloff answers the call of the voodoo in a no-holds-barred horror extravaganza that runs the gory gamut from voodoo cultists and weird jungle ceremonies to cannibal women and the walking dead! On an island off the South American coast, a hardened police captain arrives from the mainland to impose his own brutal brand of law and order. A mad midget in mod glasses, lesbian-tinged dream sequences, snakes and zombies add to the horror as the captain searches for the islander who poses as the voodoo god Damballah and presides over the natives' diabolical voodoo rites.

Cult film maker Jack Hill (Spider Baby, Foxy Brown) wrote and co-directed this unique chiller which gives fans the opportunity to see a mature Karloff still at the fiendish top of his form.

BONUS: "Quick as a Flash" 1950's TV quiz show with Boris Karloff

Product Description:

"Voodoo! Zombies! Cannibal women!" exclaims the Chief of Police (Ralph Bertrand) after finding a mutilated corpse shortly assuming control of a mysterious island in the Caribbean. Also newly arrived to the island is Mademoiselle Wunderberg, the niece of mysterious Mr. Van Molder (Boris Karloff) a plantation owner who conducts strange experiments with telekinesis involving his maid Kalea (Yolanda Montes), queen of voodoo. Kalea does lots of scantily dressed snake dancing amid the flames and beating bongo drums, while a painted dwarf in sunglasses keeps the candles lit, and the victims whipped to within an inch of their lives. Elsewhere, a group of cannibal women devour errant men, and one of Van Molder's ringleaders has resurrected a zombie for necrophiliac purposes. In the film's weirdest moment, Kalea casts a spell over Mmme. Wunderberg and she has a dream her double rises out of a coffin and sexually molests herself with a snake. It's all part of the mysterious plan to make Damballah appear, but the identity of Damballah is a mystery, as are what other horrors may await in this bizarre Mexican-American production, one of Boris Karloff's final films.
