Nicholas (George Zucco) runs a filling station in the sticks. In reality, he is helping Dr. Richard Marlowe (Bela Lugosi) capture comely young ladies so he can transfer their life essences to his long-dead wife. Also assisting is Toby (John Carradine), who lovingly shepherds the left-over zombie girls and pounds on bongos during voodoo ceremonies. The hero is a Hollywood screenwriter who, at the end of the picture, turns the experience into a script titled "Voodoo Man". When his producer asks who should star in it, the hero suggests ... Bela Lugosi.



The film was shot in seven days beginning on October 16, 1943 and was the last of Lugosi's Monogram features with Return of the Ape Man (1944). The film title was originally "Tiger Man" by author Andrew Colvin but was later changed as Voodoo Man and Colvin got no screen credit.[1]
