Starring:

Storyline
Drums o' Voodoo was re-released in 1940 under the title She Devil. Screenplay based on stage play, Louisiana, buy Augustus Smith.

The conflict among a group of Louisiana Negroes between the Christian religion, voodooism and the entirely irreligious. The latter element is personified in Morris McKinney, owner of a jook, presumably a bawdy house, who is determined that he will have the niece of the local preacher, J. Augustus Smith, or expose the preacher's past. The grandson of the woman, who is high preregister of the voodoo worshipers, wants to marry the niece. Just as McKinney is disclosing to the preacher's congregation that Smith murdered a man, he is stricken blind. This is attributed to the voodoo woman's spell. Windup finds everybody happy and the forces of voodooism riding high.
