The Disembodied (1957), directed by Walter Grauman

Decent low-budget affair set in the African jungle.  Sultry Allison Hayes plays Tonda, a “voodoo queen” who would rather have the young and handsome leader of a passing expedition than her much older doctor husband.  The voodoo rites aren’t as compelling as those in I Walked With a Zombie, but, like the entire film, they aren’t that bad, either.  One poor native woman loses her husband twice.  Definitely worth a look for fans of classic, low-budget horror.
