Santeria, the mixture of voodoo and Christianity that has its roots in the Caribbean, runs wild in the streets of New York in this movie directed by John Schlesinger and starring Martin Sheen.
But the mumbo-jumbo is so embellished with witchcraft, devil worship and psychobabble that you can never quite tell which evil force is really at work. At heart, 'The Believers' is a remake of 'Rosemary's Baby' with none of the wit and twice as much gore. There's plenty of scary scenes, however. Be on the lookout for snakes oozing out of faces and stomachs and lots of blood. Also starring Helen Shaver and Robert Loggia. Rated R.
