On January 26, 2006, Paul Daniels purchased a DVD of the 1944 black and white horror film, Voodoo Man starring Bela Lugosi.
It also stars John Carradine, George Zucco, Wanda McKay, Louise Currie, Tod Andrews, Ellen Hall and Terry Walker. In the film Bela Lugosi stars as Dr. Marlowe, who wears a goatee and a robe covered with mysterious voodoo symbols. He kidnaps girls with the aid of Zucco and Carradine so that he can use voodoo rituals on them in hope of saving his wife, who is in a perpetual trance. All the victims end up as hopeless zombies and are sent to the basement to be tortured by John Carradine. Zucco is a gas station owner who tricks the victims into driving over to Bela's house. It is described as a rare Monogram horror classic!
Paul paid only $10.50 (approximately £5.69) + postage which might have been quite a lot because it came from Woodstock, Georgia USA. To win the item Paul outbid thevoice70 who had bid $10 on January 23.
Paul left positive ebay feedback for the seller, saying, "That was very good especially considering this was an international order." The seller, marscollective left positive feedback for Paul too saying, "Hope to deal with you again. I wish more Earthlings were like you. Thank you." !!
I think Paul is going to like this movie. Not a lot!
