Critical Rating: AAA
An alluring and unusual erotic film, Blue Voodoo deals with the occult, revenge and sexuality.
The film, shot on quad video at the reported cost of $200,000, is a collage of bizarre images, sexual witchcraft and beautiful people coupling in very peculiar, erotic settings. The story deals with the revenge of an exotic dancer over the former loved one, a creep who has stolen $10,000 from her, which she was saving for marriage plans. The dancer calls on a high priestess of voodoo to spin a spell and get either revenge or the cash back.
Blue Voodoo is an enticing, mysterious film, made special by the fact that it was shot live on video. This presentation lends a special erotic immediacy that film cannot. It takes us right in the middle of the sex, and takes our breath away a bit in the process. It’s doubtful that this project would have worked well if it was shot on film because of this added dimension.
Vanessa Del Rio, wearing a bizarre leopard-skinned costume, plays the High Priestess who teaches her apprentice the tricks of getting even. The apprentice is played by Camille Sands, a 6’3” blonde beauty, who is called the Black Widow. One of the Black Widow’s strange pleasures is pouring hot wax all over her body while dancing. As she does this, the villain, played by Wade Nichols, feels the wax scorching his body, thanks to the Black Widow’s supernatural powers. She then begins to mutilate herself with a knife, and Nichols, who is having sex at the time, feels the trusts of pain stabbing him in the chest. This eventually leads to the film’s surprise climax which I won’t reveal.
The cast is small, but made up of familiar faces and bodies such as Samantha Fox, Serena and Joey Civera. Also in the film is Jeanine Dalton, who starred in Cecil Howard’s Peach Fuzz many years ago.
Directed by Armand Weston, best known for Defiance and Take-Off and Romeo Davis, an award-winning television director, Blue Voodoo is an off-beat brew of sexuality that should put the spell on you.
