Where to Watch: –

Kate Hudson is typically known for her romantic comedies, but she plays a determined damsel in distress pretty well, too.  Unfortunately, she doesn’t find the happy ending she’s fighting for.  If you like your horror flicks with a Southern gothic flair, this one works pretty well.  As Caroline struggles with her belief or disbelief of Hoodoo magic, the plot gets darker and more twisted.  With a beautifully haunting setting, this tale is one worth seeing for its visual splendor and the twist ending, which proves that the good guys don’t always win.
