Voodoo Man (1944)

To quote Josey Scott, “It’s a family reunion.”

We get to the last couple of movies from the Monogram series with Lugosi and this series doesn’t really finish on a high note either. It’s evident that the last couple of movies in this series were really cheap. This one takes place in the country and mostly at one house, although there were a few other locations including the studio office of the guy in charge of the actual movie named Sam Katzmann. At the end of the movie the main character basically tells his boss that it would be a good idea to make Voodoo Man into a movie. In other words this was a pretty meta movie before I think meta was really a thing. Most of this movie was O.K., but there isn’t that much to say about it. George Zucco was a supporting actor as a guy who does some chanting for a ceremony to bring Lugosi’s wife back from the dead while John Carradine is reduced to banging away on a tribal drum.

I am a writer and avid movie watcher (used to be music listener but I got bored of that).

One thought on “Voodoo Man (1944)

  1. What the hell did they do with Zucco and Carradine in this movie? I saw it like an hour ago but their characters were so bad I almost didn’t even remember they were in this.
