A heroic medicine man must find a way to exorcise the unwanted guest, before it's too late.

external link...tepid, tacky and ridiculous. ... It's not all bad really; Curtis' first tarot card reading is quite amusing and it is good for unintentional chuckles; but it's still a mite too talky and over-the-top to be worthwhile. 1.5/4
