The story of "Macumba Sexual" is similar to that of the better-known "Vampyros Lesbos". Lina Romay plays Alice, a woman who has strange nightmares about a beautiful woman (Ajita Wilson). Alice is sent to close the sale of a house to Princess Obongo, who turns out to be the woman haunting her dreams.

While not as psychedelic as "Vampyros Lesbos" or "She Killed in Ecstasy", "Macumba Sexual" has most of the things you're looking for (but don't always get) in a Franco movie, including great scenery and cinematography. There's not much of a plot, but then that's not usually what you watch Franco movies for. 3+

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine mix of Sexploitation and Supernatural Mumbo-Jumbo... Gorgeous DVD from Severin 18 Nov. 2006
By dooby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I liked this. I bought it together with Franco's "Mansion of the Living Dead" and while I found the latter disappointing, this earlier work from 1981 is closer to the classic Franco that I enjoy. It is sexploitation done well and with class. Lina Romay is in her second role as the blond-wigged Candy Coster. She is fuller-bodied than in her previous films but not as chunky as in "Living Dead". Here she plays the lovely Alice Brookes who has recurrent nightmares about a black Princess and her slaves. For some reason, the trio repeatedly attack and ravish her. She takes a trip to the Princess' desert island home to find out more. Her husband also goes in search of the Princess and ends up enslaved. What does Princess "Oingo-Boingo" have in store for Alice? Well the plot's just an excuse for naked bodies and kinky sex. The black transexual, Ajita Wilson plays Princess Obongo. Kudos to her plastic surgeon. She looks perfect. Take Amazon's editorial comments with a pinch of salt. It doesn't quite amount to the "fever dream of unbridled depravity" or "erotic shocker" as advertised, but it is still fun to sit through. Highlights include the Spanish couple who are led around like dogs on leashes, Alice's libidinous welcome by the Princess and her slaves and a nice scene with the ivory phallus...

Watch for Jess Franco's extended cameo as the local "retard" at the beach resort. The film is beautifully shot on Gran Canaria on Spain's Canary Islands.

Once again, Severin impresses with its beautiful transfer of the fully restored and remastered print. It is presented in its original 2.35:1 OAR (Anamorphic) and looks simply gorgeous. The original Spanish 2.0 Mono track is provided with optional English subtitles. The only Extra is a 22-minute interview segment with Franco and his wife Lina Romay. They discuss the film, Ajita's sexuality, how they met and how they've stayed together for over 20-years. Interestingly, Franco conducts the entire interview in English while Lina Romay speaks completely in Spanish. Optional English subtitles are provided and I'd advise you to turn them on, more to understand Franco's garbled English than Romay's Spanish.

2.0 out of 5 stars promises more than it delivers 19 Nov. 2006
By Timothy Ramzyk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Tonight I "made it through" MACUMBA SEXUAL.

Actually, it's not the worst Franco I've seen (OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES), but in an 80 minute sex film you know your in trouble when your longing for more shots of the beauteous landscapes.

I'm open to debate about Franco's talent or maybe lack of effort at this time in his career, but Lina Romay just doesn't have whatever enigmatic allure Franco assigns to her in these roles, and this time it's all the more apparent since Ajita Wilson as the voodoo sex queen, is kind of a trip to behold. By contrast Romay is dumpy and unconvincing as she schleps about in Camel-toe shorts, writhes in endless ecstasy wearing only a thrift-store wig, or periodically shrieks in horror at a constantly reappearing voodoo fetish, which honest-to-god looks like a splayed rubber chicken with an erection. I think we're also supposed to be spooked by it too, but it's hard for me to imagine anyone not giggling at it's absurd appearance.

Scenes of the towering Wilson walking her leashed, nude sex-slaves across the desert sand-dunes are great, and I can see why they chose that image for the box cover, but that's pretty much the best of it. I guess since I heard of this outing as being one of Franco's "fever dreams" I was expecting some more visually bewildering, disorientating fun. Franco's pan-and-zoom technique doesn't bug me the way it does some, and he does swing some pretty nice compositions of desert terrain, which the quality of this transfer admirably displays.
4.0 out of 5 stars "All Western Women Look Like Sluts......." 3 Dec. 2012
By Odo of Venafro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"I am a Black woman with sexual power."

I found this movie most similar in plot outline, or at least they use a similar device, to "Lorna the Exorcist"; an earlier Romay vehicle. Similar witchery. In Lorna.. the witch or even satan stand-in uses an object i.e. a small statue - an object you can hold in your hand, to transfer her powers to the Romay character, inserting it into her -- "YOU KNOW WHERE" @#$%<>. Well in this film, Princess Obongo uses the same method to transfer her powers into another Romay character.

One could analyze this movie on a deeper level (no pun intended). You are not going to believe I am going to say this: is this movie PC??? You know, politically correct!! Jess Franco was ahead of his time. "Ilsa the Wicked Warden" had overtones of Latin-American left-wing politics. This movie is commentary on colonialism. Franco returned to Spain to make this film. The Spanish are sometimes credited with launching the age of imperialism or colonialism. The movie was filmed on the Canary Islands, a Spanish colony. All the African art and imagery.

This was a great movie. There was lots of explicit sex and the women very attractive. Did I mention that it also has a good story.
4.0 out of 5 stars usaul Franco stuff here but one of the better ones I've seen 20 April 2015
By Gavin C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
one of Jess Franco's better films - even though still has the usual obscure story line at times but thats what makes Franco Films so cool most of the time - its B grade pulp that is cool because it is wierd and at times doesnt make a lot of sense - lots of ladies with there gear off - mainly Romay as is usual in most Franco's films - but at least several other attractive women in film also -usual Franco stuff but one of better efforts
