It makes you watch and see what will happen in the end.
Alicia Glaser
I was at first put off by the shoddy voodoo practiced by the suburban grandmas, not to mention some of the gore.
Richard Sparrow
The film itself and the acting in the film were very good.

This film is very well done. Mark Hamill did a wonderful job!. He always does. The film is very captivating and suspensful. It makes you watch and see what will happen in the end. The acting is very good on the part of all the actors. One actor in the film, Ray Michaels Quiroga who plays a detective did a very good job portraying a cop with a sence of humor. Apolonia did a wonderful job, and of course the rest of the actors did very well. The direction was well excecuted and the writting was very good. Director Deryn Warren did a wonderful job casting this film and directing it. This film is one of my favorite horror and suspense films.

If you ever had ever type-cast Mark Hamill as goody-goody Luke Skywalker, this film should change your mind.
The beginning featured several old ladies and a two hard to identify young ladies (one looked VERY much like Amanda Wyss) holding a voodoo ritual in the dark. Then the scenery changed to an art gallery.
Brad Travis (Mark Hamill), a charismatic, successful art dealer that operated an LA Art Gallery with his girlfriend Diane Abbott (Amanda Wyss) held party to promote a new artist. At the event Travis saw Cassandra Perry (Apollonia) who visited the gallery for the first time. He was most attracted to her (what man in his right mind would NOT be attracted to Apollonia???) and made it apparent to everyone including his girlfriend. Diane got very angry and opted not to spend the night with Brad (they lived in separate residences). Brad heard noise in the gallery after Diane left and it turned out to be Cassandra. A very erotic and well directed love scene followed, which was highlighted by the song Black Magic Woman and sensual art.
Diane flew to NYC for business, which left Brad free to have an affair with Cassandra. After Diane returned, Brad behaved very badly to Cassandra. I was very disappointed in his demeanor to her. The affair became public knowledge and Brad lost both ladies.
Brad then brought home another lady and tried to "have fun" with her, but couldn't because he became suddenly ill due to a CURSE (witchcraft). He began vomiting blood and had great illness, which doctors couldn't diagnose.
Without ruining the story, Brad got sicker until a curandero healed him. However, 4 people were murdered as a result of the love triangle. Who killed them? Who put the curse on Brad? Which lady did he end up with (I would've chosen Cassandra)?

A smarmy, womanizing art gallery director (Mark Hamill- STAR WARS 4-6, SLIPSTREAM) is cursed w/ hoodoo after he has an affair w/ a beautiful woman (Apollonia- PURPLE RAIN). His girlfriend (Amanda Wyss- A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, SHAKMA) seems both clueless and helpless to save her developmentally arrested boyfriend. BLACK MAGIC WOMAN has few real thrills, but is fun to watch, especially when we see Luke Skywalker being worked on by a hoodoo exorcist! He also grimaces a lot, and writhes on the carpet! Sweeeet! We also get those blood-filled eggs and a housekeeper in the fridge! There is a dark twist at the end, but it's too little too late. Oh my!...

Its low budget. Its only ever been released on VHS format, I cannot even see it on Region 2 disc release. Its early in his career, IMDB shows a lot of performances that he has done in his career but try finding them live action as opposed to a voice acting role, also alot of the work he has done that is live action is good but no executive will take the risk of putting it on DVD. It is the worlds loss, this is a creepy psychological thriller with elements of witchcraft and other aspects of the occult that is just so good that I can not say enough about it. The problem is that if I tell you to much it will ruin the surprise. If you want to take the risk keep reading for a full description of what is now a prize part of my VHS collection. I might try to copy it to disc for my own private collection as I love it that much.

SPOILER ALERT!!! READ ON AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!!!!!

Evil has never been more erotic.

The owner of a suburban art gallery searches for someone to perform an exorcism after a witch casts a spell on him.

Great Story and Well Acted. The film itself and the acting in the film were very good. The whole story idea behind it was very interesting and intriguing. The problem with the film was that the editing was not very good. By the editing not being good it affected the over all look of the film. The acting, directing, writing, and complete film were good. The editing killed the whole thing for me because it was too choppy and made it difficult to follow because of all the weird splicing everywhere. But besides that I'd give this film an 8, 10 being best. In spite of the splicing, I am never selling this film, and will only lend it out if I can burn a copy to disk, and then only because it is hard to find. I paid 4 dollars for it here on ebay, but in retrospect I would have paid $30. Look all you will, you won't find this at even the most eclectic or artistic independently owned video stores. Believe me I have actually looked.

This unfolds slowly but nicely with good acting (Mark Hamill is good as always) and a surprisingly original plot (which you have to watch this in its entirety to appreciate.) Understated and well done. Liked it a lot.

This movie is actually pretty good! Here and there, some of the acting and lines are a little corny, but I find myself looking for this stuff, so most people probably won't notice. All in all, the acting is good. The plot line is a good one, too...keeps you going throughout the movie. It kept me engaged, awake, anticipating the next twist, so I give it 4 stars! If you have a rainy day, and some time to spare, wrap up in a blanket on the couch, grab a hot cup of tea or coffee, and fire this one up on the computer! Its worth an hour and a half!
