Voodoo Academy (2000)
Nomination Year: 2009
SYNOPSIS: Christopher Sawyer has just enrolled in a prestigious bible college. Yet its tiny class size keeps dwindling as students are "expelled" (i.e. they mysteriously vanish). Is it really the case that Blake hit on Mrs. Bouvier and Rusty was a drug addict? Or could it be that Mrs. Bouvier and the Rev. Carmichael are transferring their heads to voodoo dolls in order to sacrifice their innocence to some weird Haitian demon?
And ... what's up with all the late-night shirtless writhing?
- Worst Science
The Science of the Soul
Reverend Carmichael's high-tech confessional uses electromagnetic energy to align your life energy, thus removing your sin -- and making you less likely to sin again next time. It must be true -- he's a man of God. And look -- cables connected to crystals. Science!
- Worst Special Effect
The FX of the Damned
It's the evil ritual. As Mrs. Bouvier stands with one hand near the dummy and one near her victim's hand, "magic fireflies" appear and swirl around both hands -- then her victim dissolves, and finally ... the
greenscreenhead appears on the doll's body (as if by magic)!
