Is it just me

Or did anyone else notice a certain tinge of Vodoun themes in "Black Swan?" Natalie Portman's character, in order to find strength, "took on" another persona. However sometime that character manifested in unpredictable ways. It seemed awfully similar to being ridden by a Loa. The Persona seemed very similar to Erzuli Le Rouge....even to the point of her eyes turning red.

I didn't think it was deliberate on the part of the film makers, but the Black Swan herself definitely reminded me of Erzulie ge Rouge! I am actually considering cutting out a picture of those beautiful and terrifying red eyes and putting them on my ge Rouge altar space.
