Gale Bland plays a female business executive who is summoned to Cairo by Isis Cosmetics to initiate some sort of business deal. She eventually discovers that there is no Isis Cosmetics and that she has been lured to Cairo so that a nouveau sect of devil worshipers can sacrifice her to some kind of voodoo king. The conclusion is predictable yet highly unusual."Shadow of Illusion" constantly rides the line between matter-of-fact storytelling and over-the-top storytelling, and is played so straight that it succeeds as a thriller with some truly frightening moments. Giodorno, never more beautiful, appears to be sporting a red wig and appears to have put on some weight, but it only flatters her, as do the interesting dresses she wears throughout.
