VOODOO BLACK EXORCIST
In fact, when it comes down to it, Voodoo Black Exorcist is no more than a mummy film with a few nods to voodoo rituals. Aldo Sambrell is essentially a variant on Lon Chaney Jr from the Universal Mummy sequels of the 1940s he is resurrected, takes on human form and poses as an expert after which he stalks about developing an obsessive fixation on the heroine whom he believes to be the reincarnation of his lost love.
Voodoo Back Exorcist is a tedious film. You cannot deny that it kicks in with an entertainingly cheesy opening featuring a voodoo ritual with topless dancers and the Aldo Sambrells loves head severed and the priest dancing about kissing it. Alas, nothing else in the film ever matches this. Thereafter, the bulk of the location is located about a luxury cruise liner where the mummy resurrects from the cargo hold and stalks about, occasionally killing somebody but mostly venturing into Eva Leons cabin and hovering over her bed with creepy intent while she sleeps. These scenes drag to a standstill, being padded out with excruciating comic relief scenes with a middle-aged couple. Not to mention, you are left wondering why on Earth someone would use a cruise ship to transport cargo. Far too late in the show, the mummy finally abducts Eva Leon, resulting in a chase by the doctor and police through the streets of Port-au-Prince to apprehend him as he heads to a cave, before going up in flames.
Director M. (or Miguel) Caño made a handful of films, most of them obscure. Of interest are a couple of Spanish Tarzan films, Tarzan and the Golden Grotto (1969) and Tarzan and the Brown Prince (1972), as well as the horror film The Swamp of the Ravens (1974).
