Audience Reviews for Voodoo Island


My first question in watching this old Black & White Movie is what color is Boris Karloff suppose to be, In this movie he looks like he's a few shades darker then a white man and a lot of shades lighter then the native Hawaiians posing as pacific islanders. Anyway its another one of those so called movies where Boris is playing a role other then horror, rare how rare you ask beats me, past 3 films I have seen him in he hasn't played a horror role yet (Dr Wong) . In this one he is a Scientific investigator, checking out this pacific island for a wealthy industrialist who wants to put a Hotel resort on the island, but thing go wrong when plants start drowning people and eating people, the remaining group is captured by natives only to be let go after one person dies while captured. The last we see is Boris and another man who has been scared stiff walking off in the sunset. 2 1/2 stars is about all its worth.
