Voodoo Possession Review


Imagine an insatiable demon that feeds on blood, thrives on pain, and reaches from beyond the grave to torment the living...

Voodoo Possession‘s horror trailer got me all psyched to see this scary horror movie. Director Walter Boholst (D-volution, Lady Killer, Thrust) has not directed many movies in his time and did not do an exceptional job with Voodoo Possession. This horror movie had potential but was not executed well. I mainly wanted to see this because the trailer was scary and made me squirm a little. I also like the majority of movies with actor Danny Trejo who stars as Krossy in this movie. Voodoo Possessions contains mild bad language, spiritual rituals, little gore, suicide, suggestion of child abuse, satanic dancing and a whole lot of boredom.

Voodhoo Possession started out with a lady in a basement going through things in a box. All of a sudden she started hallucinating by thinking the crayons are chopped human fingers and the picture of her sons looks like zombies/ghost. She then sees a shadow on the wall and started talking to it by saying, "leave them alone (referring to her sons) and take me." She commits suicide within a minute by stepping up on the very top of a ladder, puts a gigantic knife to her opened mouth and falls while holding the knife.

Cody (David Thomas Jenkins - After Dark, Legendary: Tomb of the Dragon Fry, Bad Blood… the Hunger) and Aiden Chase (Ryan Caltagirone - Criminal Minds, Bones, The Last Harbor) are brothers who had lost their mother (above) to suicide at a young age. Cody is now a doctor who travels to Haiti to help people in a mental illness hospital. Cody went missing so his brother Aiden goes to Haiti with a group of people to find his brother and to do a documentary on it at the same time. Aiden received a USB chip that contained information about his brother and Krossy trying to help patients in the mental hospital.

The horror movie is pretty much slow after the mothers suicide. Voodoo Possession got really interesting about 25 minutes after the mother’s suicide and then straight back into boredom. Aiden was warned to leave the village with his friends but refused to because he thinks the Haitians are trying to keep out the stupid Americans. He then inquires about the spirits and continue his search for Cody. Aiden and his helpers did a ceremony to contact the spirit to find out what happen to Cody. The Spirit then abducted/took Bree Nelson (Kerry Knuppe - Down Angel, Legend, Home) to the Sorcerer as a sacrifice. Everyone involved in the ceremony started to hallucinate by seeing everyone they care about that died and their inner grief play out. From that point on, almost everyone died one by one.

I gave it a 3 because the movie was overly to slow. It had limited good scenes (2 good scenes at the most) and you can tell it was a low budget film. I have watched and loved some low budget movies but this one is one of the worse I have seen. The movie unraveled why the mother committed suicide at the end. You will have to watch the movie if you want to find out why. It is also told why the Tormentor is after Aiden and Cody. I will definitely not watch this movie again, even if I do not have anything else to watch.
