Welcome to the latest edition of Halloween Boutique Psychotronic Reviews (or HBPR for short) – a podcast that reviews and critiques genre films, midnight movies, and boutique label discs. With this latest episode, we take a look at the Tim Constible directed/written film VOODOO (2018) starring actress Samantha Stewart before discussing some news and new releases.
VOODOO: Dani Lamb (Samantha Stewart) heads to Los Angeles from her native New Orleans to visit her cousin, Stacy (Ruth Reynolds). When she arrives, the two head out on the town to have fun. But Dani admits the real reason she is there; she had been dating a man who had been married. Though he had lied to Dani about his marriage, his wife began stalking Dani and threatening her at work. Unfortunately, the wife may be more than she appears to be. Is she a practitioner of the black arts?

Though getting mixed reviews, the film got notice form a variety of big newspapers and websites with some praising its story and practical effects.
