Sugar Hill is a horror movie from 1974 that tells the story of Diana "Sugar" Hill, a woman seeking revenge after her boyfriend is killed by a gang of ruthless thugs. Diana is the owner of a popular nightclub in Houston and is in a happy relationship with a successful businessman named Langston. However, their peaceful life is shattered when a group of local gangsters, led by Morgan, attempt to force Langston out of a land deal. When Langston refuses to back down, the gang brutally murders him.

Devastated by the loss of her partner, Diana turns to a voodoo priestess named Mama Maitresse for help. Mama Maitresse agrees to summon a powerful voodoo god named Baron Samedi to assist Diana in her quest for revenge. In return, Diana offers the god a sacrifice: the souls of the gang members responsible for Langston's death.

Baron Samedi agrees to help Diana, and she enlists the help of a group of voodoo zombies to carry out her plan. The zombies, who are under Diana's control, set out to kill each of the gang members one by one.

As the body count rises, Morgan becomes increasingly paranoid and begins to suspect that something supernatural is at work. He tries to recruit a group of mercenaries to protect him, but is ultimately no match for Diana and her voodoo zombies.

In the end, Diana is able to exact her revenge and bring the gang members to justice. But she's left alone to deal with the aftermath of her actions and the toll it takes on her own soul.

Sugar Hill is a notable entry in the horror genre for its fresh take on the revenge fantasy, exploring themes of grief and justice through the lens of voodoo magic. The film is also notable for its predominantly Black cast and crew, standing out as an early example of representation in a genre that had long been dominated by White filmmakers. Marki Bey delivers a standout performance as Diana, channeling both strength and vulnerability in her quest for vengeance. Robert Quarry and Don Pedro Colley also deliver memorable performances as Morgan and Baron Samedi, respectively.

Sugar Hill is a 1974 crime movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.8.
