THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW / Universal Pictures - 1988
Here's a nice little flick about voodoo and drugs in Haiti, it stars Bill Pullman in a role that should have at least earned him an Oscar nomination, you really believe this stuff is happening to him. It's a standout horror story that I highly recommend...
I have a wild sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our Dungeon Voodoo Freak, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a deadly taste of... THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW!
Bill plays Dr. Dennis Alan, he's in Haiti doing research on a powerful drug there and gets a curse put on him by the local witch doctor!
Then, the ground beneath the doctor's feet opens up and hundreds of zombies drag him down to the bottom of the pit. Thing is... It's only in his mind!
With friends like this hanging around, do you really need any enemies?!
In this hallucination, Dennis watches as this blushing bride pulls her jaw down and shoots a viper out of her mouth!.. Will the fun never end?
His tormentor is one sick SOB, here, the madman threatens to light his torch for the thrill.
And, Dungeon Hero Michael Gough has a small part in the movie, looking good as usual..
This girl becomes possessed and tries to bury this butcher knife somewhere in Dennis!
Dennis gets drugged and he is buried alive! They also give him some little playmates to keep him company while he ponders his situation.
The fun doesn't end there though, check out the maniac pulling his head completely off, he then throws it at Dennis, barely missing him!
This is one freaky scene, those long rubbery arms with grabbing hands give me the chills!
Our nemesis gets his just desserts in the end, Dennis has a few tricks up his sleeve as he's learned some spells himself. The maniac gets a steel spike right into his groin before falling through the floor on an elevator trip straight to Hell!! Yes, Dennis makes it through the ordeal and the good guys win... Whew!!
