The Prodigy - Voodoo People music video


Director: Walter Stern
Producer: Russel Curtis

The video was high budget job at the time, shot on location on the exotic Caribbean volcanic island called Saint Lucia. It’s part of the Windward Islands group of the Lesser Antilles. It’s area is about 616 square kilometres, and its population is about 150.000. Liam, Maxim and Keith are all being pursued by Leeroy, who is a voodoo witch doctor. The video contained some real scenes of voodoo witch craft which had to be researched carefully due to the sensitive nature of the occult (Papa Doc Duvalier might come after them).

Again, the 'scenes of distress' (it was only some ritualistic torture) had to be cut in order for the video to be shown on the television. There are about 3 or 4 different versions. One is the original which is on Electronic Punks. The others are different editions and there is also a Chemical/Dust Brothers version of the video!
