    Def by Temptation

    ★★

    Yeah... I don't know what there is to say but unfortunately this 1990 Argento-esque Blaxploitation horror wasn't quite as appealing as it sounded to me. There was some beatifully haunting cinematography and lighting which brings films like "SUSPIRIA" and "INFERNO" to mind.
