Trailer Trash XXXI: Voodoo Woman (1957)

"A woman by day... a monster by night!"

The tagline for this movie describes a lot of the dates Cake Man's brought back to League Headquarters. (Except "monster" would be a nicer word than he'd use for them.)

I'll forgo any long intro here. This is a monster movie from the 1950s that isn't titled Creature from the Black Lagoon, so you can be 99% sure it's a cheesy mess.

At 0:05 - The monster looks like the Crypt Keeper in a Dee Snider wig.
At 0:45 - Alright, kids, remember those names - there'll be a test on them later.
At 1:23 - Was that the narrator slipping into his 'scary voice'?
At 1:27 - OK, he threw the molotov, but look in his other hand. Is Touch Connors drinking a beer?

Voodoo Land? No fortune in gold or diamonds would get me to go to a place called Voodoo Land. I mean, just the name alone lets you know it's a terrible, dangerous place. It's like Stabbytown, or Murderopolis. Or Youngstown, Ohio. Why would you ever go to a place call Voodoo Land, gold or no?

"A blond captive in the darkness... of Voodoo Land!"
