      Audience Member Shot as Panga by director Sean Barton (who only directed this one movie, but has edited many more) on location in South Africa in 1989, this film was added to the Curse series of films. None of these movies are connected and you know, that's kind of how we like it. You can call it Witchcraft, Blood Sacrifice or Curse III: Panga, if you'd like. Geoff Armstrong (Andre Jacobs) and his wife Elizabeth (Jenilee Harrison, Cindy Snow from Three's Company and Jamie Ewing Barnes on Dallas) are running a large sugar plantation in East Africa. Things go wrong when the sacrifice of a goat by the locals get interrupted and a witch doctor calls a demon from the sea that kills everyone in the Armstrong family except Elizabeth. Elizabeth gets help from Dr. Pearson (Christopher Lee) and to break the curse she must lure the witch doctor into the sugar cane fields and set him on fire. Seems like a good plan, I guess. The fish man is designed by The Fly special FX artist Chris Walas, so this has that going for it. It's not really all that exciting, nor is at as devoted to being entertaining weirdness like the first two films in the Curse non-series. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A likable cast and and decent location photography make this low budget horror film watchable. Jenilee Harrison (Suzanne Somers' replacement, Cindy, on "Three's Company") plays a 1950s great white huntress in Africa who interrupts a sacred tribal ceremony, so the tribe unleashes a demon-like creature to torment her. To add a bit of gravitas to the low budget cheese-fest is the great Christoper Lee, still in his career slump before Peter Jackson sparked a late career revival for Lee with the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also noticed in the credits Gavin Hood as a supporting actor, who's now better know as the director of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," "Enders Game" and other big Hollywood projects. This film's director never directed another film, but he didn't do a bad job. He was actually the editor on some pretty cool movies including "Quadrophenia" and "Return of the Jedi." Overall, this is nothing to go our of your way to watch, but it did have a scrappy, entertaining Charles Band/Full Moon Features kind of vibe that was enough to hold my interest. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member (***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] A fun, cheesy horror flick. AKA: Panga Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Yet another top top contender in the worst movie of all time search. I honestly don't even know where to start. Unbearably horrible, even for me. Please, take my advice and spend an hour and a half getting a root canal instead, as it would be much more comfortable than watching this.

      Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The so-so B film was incredulous, but I'm a sucker for even only barely acceptable Christopher Lee films and ones that have witch doctors fully dressed for their evil role. Rated: B- Oct 22, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
