A small remote island is the home for voodoo rites, death cults and an evil priest named Damballah. Local law officials turn a blind eye to their evil ways until Captain Labesch arrives from the mainland. Determined to crack down on the island's lawlessness and clean up the ineffectual, hard-drinking police force, Labeasch appeals to plantation tycoon Carl Van Molder for assistance.

3 ½ There’s a lot to like here for the trash and bad movie fan: zombie sex slaves, a bald dwarf flogging masochistic women, animal sacrifice, exotic dancers caressing snakes, a gang of women cannibals and lesbian auto-eroticism. Lethargic and sickly Boris Karloff is creepy as always, but he adds only a little stature. Fun over-acting by the voodoo sorceress Tongolele and the master of ceremonies dwarf. Very uneven, the ceremony scenes are exciting with lots of hand-held shots and frenzied editing, while the supposedly dramatic ESP scene is static and just amazingly incompetent. The story is non-sensical and badly told, and the disconnected dialog is sometimes almost hallucinatory. There’s always something interesting to see in the sets, especially at the sugar cane plantation and the police station. A guilty pleasure, I enjoy re-watching this every once in a while.

Strange, strange, strange! B movie paradise with some serious pacing flaws.
