Shadow: Dead Riot
A sorcerer, a voodoo ritual, women’s prison, blood and naked
women. Many things, (there is also a twist like "Star Wars") that
indicate a willingness to pay homage to the cinema of the past and to
impress the audience, but also, that here there is a great confusion.
Derek Wan from Hong Kong, in his first experience in a feature film,
after directing the TV movie "A Sunset Fighter" the series "The War of
Gene" and especially after work often as a cinematographer, manages to

Definitely a great opportunity missed, considering also that it has a
good cast with Tony Todd (Shadow) star in "Candyman" and who starred in
"The Rock," "The Crow," "Final Destination," "Night Of The Living Dead
"in 1990 and many other works including some TV series.
The sporty Carla Greene (Solitaire) works for the TV series and there
is a small part of Misty Mundae while the soundtrack is composed by
none other than Vernon Reid a former member of "Living Colour".
