Audience Reviews for The Devil's Daughter


Some more voodoo in this all-Black cast film which takes place in Jamaica. Recent transplants from Harlem arrive to take control of a plantation which they recently inherited, but the locals use fake-vooodoo in attempt to get them to leave. A drama with a bit of horror, Hamtree Harrington is the comedy relief, much in the same respect as those roles commonly played by Mantan Moreland and Willie Best.


This is a ridiculous movie, I didn't know or care about what was going on at all. I recommend staying away from this movie.

Super Reviewer

This all African American mystery suffers from a low budget and some acting that is less than stellar by most but a couple of the actors are pretty good. The setting is a plus. It's okay, historically significant as well.
