Sugar Hill

Sugar Hill

A FILM BY: Paul Maslansky
STARRING: Marki Bey, Robert Quarry, Don Pedro Colley

A Part of Music Box of Horrors: Dawn of the Drive-In Presented by Shudder 

On its surface a colorful Voodoo take on the occult craze of the early ‘70s, underneath Sugar Hill boils and bubbles with revolutionary spirit. Consciously playing on racist stereotypes and white fears of Afro-Caribbean religions, Sugar Hill adds a supernatural dimension to its blaxploitation revenge plot through magic, mischief, and karmic justice. The unfuckwithable Marki Bey stars as Diana “Sugar” Hill, who turns to Voodoo priestess Mama Maitresse (Zara Cully) for help after her lover is murdered. She gets what she came for, conjuring up trickster god Baron Samedi (Don Pedro Colley) and an army of undead soldiers who help Sugar enact vengeance on those who have wronged her.
