This low-budget, Atlanta-lensed blend of horror and "blaxploitation" elements is basically a Ten Little Indians variant with a touch of voodoo thrown in for spice. The plot involves members of a family who are gathering at the decrepit estate of a legendary voodoo priestess for the reading of her will; the potential heirs are systematically murdered by the woman's butler (Jean Durand), who practices a diabolical form of voodoo himself. The cast is whittled down to two survivors (Victor French and Janee Michelle) before the killer's plan is undone. A justly forgotten relic of '70s horror-exploitation, this boring film was directed by television producer Ron Honthaner, who should have stuck with Gunsmoke.
