“If Florida was more like DEATH CURSE OF TARTU, I’d move there tomorrow.” -- Joseph A. Ziemba, BLEEDING SKULL!
Made in Florida in the mid-1960s by exploitation legend William Grefe, DEATH CURSE OF TARTU tells the story of a group of young people who venture into the everglades to party. However, they disturb the burial ground of Tartu, a witch doctor who has been dead for 400 years. Not wanting strangers on his ground, Tartu returns in the form of various animals who murder the partygoers one by one. Realizing they have no other course of action, the surviving members of the party set out to find Tartu's grave so that they may destroy his body forever.
