Putting your priorities first can lead to many downfalls. As you are always looking to get something accomplished you may find that you have let your life just pass in front of you without really getting a chance to live it. With that being said, if you are able to accomplish what you believe your lifelong goal has been, you may feel fulfilled and have no regrets in missing the little things. Just make sure to keep your eyes open so you can see what is happening, you never know if your priorities need to make a drastic change.
Logan Andrews is looking to build a new resort on a plot of land he was lucky enough to inherit from the death of his last love. Working closely with his good friend Freddy who is the island doctor, the two have schemed ways to make enough money to fund the building of their future hotel. But Logan never lowers his gaze even when he has exactly what he wants. Miss Margaret Richardson has just entered his party and has caught his eye with her richly demeanor. While trying to get to know the woman, Logan is called out for an emergency on his newly acquired property that will sink his dreams forever.
Finding out that all of the land that is now under his possession is covered with swamp and quicksand, it will take more money than he has to get his hotel off of the ground. Knowing that Margaret has money that can makes his dreams come true, Logan turns to an old friend for help to get her to fall in love with him and give him access to all of her money. Psyche is not happy with her relationship with Logan since he would not stand up for the love that the two share in front of the upper class. Even though she is upset, she knows Logan’s plan and will support him in any way that she can. Giving him a voodoo potion to make the distant Margaret fall in love with him, Psyche gives Logan the exact instructions on how to use it properly, one drop for marriage or two drops for a love of a lifetime.
Being able to sneak the drop into any drink that he gives to Margaret, Logan believes that marriage will not be enough to secure her financial surplus and gives her two drops. Unknown to himself and his doctor, Margaret dies before they are able to tie the knot. Now with no chance of getting the money to complete his dream of building the hotel, Logan cries over her grave. But Margaret is not dead, as she has been given two drops of the voodoo potion, she is his for life. Coming back from the grave, she acts as if nothing has changed, but slowly her body starts to deteriorate and becomes more and more grotesque. As Logan understands what is happening, he needs to find a way to get away from his undead love, but even his own death will not keep the two apart.
This is an enjoyable story as voodoo is brought into the mix while trying to make one’s dreams come true. Although it is not goal of Logan to fall in love, he has to convince a rich woman to allow him to take control of her finances. When she does not see the benefit of this however, he finds another way, and love is the only thing that can force this on somebody. But Logan is in love with another woman and her love burns more deeply than he even knows. Cursing him instead of helping him could be the only way for him to truly understand what he has left behind with her. With D.W. Moffett as Logan, Pamela Gien as Margaret, Janet Hubert as Psyche and the great Aubrey Morris as Freddy, this is one of my favorite casts for the show to date. Each actor/actress found the right amount of rage and lust to show how deep love could truly burn. Until next time, Stay Scared.
