THE PLOT:

After exploring the Amazon Jungle, A scientist discovers a tribe that worships a strange plant and sacrifices Virgins to this womaneating monster. He takes it back to civilization in order to study the plant and uncover the secret behind its sap, a sap that can reanimate the dead.

But Dr. Moran is perplexed why the sap is not lasting very long? Could it be that it needs to be Virgins and not prostitutes? With a shortage of Virgins in London, even in the fifties Moran looks at the little girl who lives down the lane, little being relative.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Although it was pretty good, I was kinda disappointed that the plant did not walk around, just stood there and what is with Great Juju, anything primitive is called Great Juju, you would think the natives would have given the plant its own name.
I GIVE IT (5 STARS)

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I was a lot more disappointed in this bore then Zedd. The plant not walking was a bigger problem with me. I didnt like the cheap effects or the slow paced storyline.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ INNOVATIVE (The idea of feeding women to a monster plant in order to bring back the dead was kinda cool)
+ COOL DESIGN (I really liked the Monsters design)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- NO WALKING (Not walking was a big problem for both of us)
- SLOW PACED (It takes a while for the movie to get going)

And Finally:

- GREAT JUJU (What is that about?)
