Lord Shango (1975)

“Sacrifice your soul to Shango in the blood ritual of life and death!”

Jenny (Marlene Clark) is a small-town single mother to teen Billie (Avis McCarther). Yearning for another child, Jenny heeds the advice of her shifty boyfriend, Memphis (Wally Taylor), who suggests she let the local preacher baptize her. Jenny takes Billie along. This annoys Billie’s boyfriend, Femi (Bill Overton), because he’s a member of a sect that practices a Yoruba religion that reveres an entity known as Shango.

Femi interrupts the baptism, so the minister and his Yoruba followers kill him, but is that the end?
