Description by OLDIES.com:
Before she was the title character in Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman, voluptuous Allison Hayes was a whole lotta female in this horror thriller set in the steamy African jungle. Hayes plays Tonda, the restless wife of a misanthropic doctor. When men on a photo safari stumble into the doctor's remote camp with a wounded comrade, Tonda supplements her usual pursuit (voodoo, especially as a way to off her husband) with a new one: seduction. As men lose their hearts (one literally) to the alluring voodoo priestess, she embarks on a killing spree that turns the jungle blood red. A preposterously enjoyable mix of magic and murder, The Disembodied demonstrates why Hayes was headed for B-horror-movie glory.
THE DISEMBODIED is a voodoo melodrama set in a Hollywood-backlot jungle. The villain of the piece is Tonda (Allison Hayes), the craven wife of jungle doctor Metz (John Wengraf). Whenever she can't get what she wants, Tonda resorts to voodoo to confound and destroy her enemies. Naturally, she receives her comeuppance in a particularly untidy fashion. Top billing is bestowed upon Paul Burke, who after achieving stardom in TV's NAKED CITY and 12 O'CLOCK HIGH tended to remove DISEMBODIED from his resume. The film was originally released on a double bill with FROM HELL IT CAME.
