LWA: ALL SAINTS’ EVE (2016) Reviews and overview

‘In voodoo, angels and demons are the same.’

Lwa: All Saints’ Eve is a 2016 American horror feature film about a young businesswoman who is lured into a trap in the swamps by an evil sorceress.

Written and directed by special effects artist Rick Prince – making his directorial debut – with additional dialogue by Thomas Horton, the movie stars Ashley Love-Mills, Dianne Oyama Dixon, Mars Melnicoff and Alexander Cruz.


Monique Valliere (Ashley Love-Mills), a young businesswoman in modern New Orleans, is lured into a deadly confrontation with a ruthless sorceress who conjures the dark spirits of Voodoo in the eerie swamps of Louisiana.


“It’s too bad that the atmosphere is missing because the rest of Lwa: All Saints’ Eve is quite a bit of fun. For a low budget film, there’s a fairly large cast. Which means plenty of potential victims and chances to get in some effects. And since it was written and directed by an effects guy, you know there will be some good ones.” Voices from the Balcony
