The story surrounds four men who are cursed by a voodoo priest for stealing a sacred idol from his temple. Soon after being surrounded, evil 'doll' people begin to kill their family members.
K. Gordon Murray imported the film to the US and added several English-language scenes.
Writing in The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle criticized the American import as incoherent. Glenn Kay, who wrote Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide, called the film "a strictly by-the-numbers exercise that must have elicited more giggles than gasps on its release".
