Fresh from drug rehab, Corey Feldman plays Andy, a struggling writer who visits a college campus to hangout with his easily annoyed girlfriend Rebecca. “Becky” kicks him to the curb so he pledges a fraternity of voodoo worshipping yuppies all because his girlfriend won’t let him crash on her couch. The new frat brothers drug him and give him a home-made dragon tattoo forcing him to snuggle with a dead girl in a pit of chicken bones. Still way better than carrying cherries around with your butt cheeks for a hazing. Thinking it was all just a bad dream from the cajun food, he gets a bit suspicious when the fraternities head voodoo doctor, Marsh performs acupuncture on a ken doll that causes their neighbor to blow his brains out with a shotgun. Andy decides he has had enough and spikes one of their drinks with some table salt (it’s voodoo zombie kryptonite.) Epileptic seizure hilarity ensues and he has to dive out the window just as Columbo in a k-car rescues him with a sonic dead chicken horn that causes Marsh’s ears to bleed.
He drives Andy to a secret room where he tells him that Marsh wants to live forever but needs him as the final sacrificed brother to make the ritual complete. Wanting to get out of dodge, he tracks down Rebecca to warn her and she easily accepts his insane story and starts searching through schools files with her roommate. Not sure what she hopes to find. Maybe a dead chicken head or proof of voodoo tax evasion? Rebecca’s professor finds them and injects her friend in the neck with some green poison which means instant death and no extra credits. She should have known with all those seminars in black magic and goat sacrificing that her professor was in on the whole thing.
Rebecca is kidnapped by a security guard and gets thrown into the backseat of a Lincoln Continental. Meanwhile Andy is stuck battling a frat zombie in Bob Marey’s former smoking lounge. He escapes and tracks his girlfriend down to a basement temple where Marsh just stabbed the rest of his frathouse brothers and doused himself in talcum powder and just grey for men hair coloring gel. Rebecca is tied up and gaged which has got to be a relief to Andy from her constant judgement of his life choices. He impales Marsh with a metal pipe covered in magic dust the exact same way you’d kill a circus del soil dancer. Andy and Becky escape to transfer to a community college free of Voodoo curses and career prospects and frathouses everywhere are safe once again..well except for drunk co-eds.
Barry Goodall says to checkout “Voodoo” and remember to keep your voodoo doll in it’s original packaging. it’s worth more on eBay that way.
Oh yeah, a Becky actually did break up with me once in college and became a Barista. It’s the 3B’s of college… Becky, Breakup, Barista. But I’m not bitter.
