Hurry hurry hurry with it please!!!
H. Detter
All and all, it was a VERY entertaining movie with a few corny parts tossed in for good measure, I presume.
D. Agnone
For fans of 80's thrillers this movie is a good way to spend an hour or so.

Format: VHS Tape
Not just one of the sexiest horror movies ever but one of the sexiest Movies ever, period, and also among the scariest movies out there; why this remains unavailable on DVD is confounding (the site here has the same product listed as both a DVD and a VHS, but I believe the DVD part is a typo; I don't think they had DVD even on the drawing board in 1992 and "Spellbinder" doesn't show up on DVD searches).

Springing from a simple premise - while playing basketball one night Jeff (Timothy Daly) and a friend witness a beautiful young woman (Miranda, as played by Kelly Preston in one of her best roles) being attacked by a thug and come to her rescue. From this a romance develops between Jeff and the magical Miranda, which in turn leads to some of the hottest footage ever put on film. What elevates it (in addition to Preston's mind-blowing beauty) is how passionate and into one another the lovers seem to be; the stone-faced, mechanical love scenes in some lesser movies are ineffective (the characters seem to be thinking, 'ah, we got a half hour to kill. Why not? Whatever.') but here both the action and the affection are scorching.

The new idyllic life doesn't stay idyllic for long though, as the identity of the man earlier assaulting Miranda and his reasons come into the light. Miranda is on the run from a cult she became mixed up in that now wants her back as they've chosen her as a human sacrifice. If memory serves me correctly there were allusions to Wicca, although the cult is clearly not Wiccan but Diabolical in nature; the 'Wicca' angle may have been a hook they used to lure in unsuspecting recruits who would have wanted nothing to do with Satanism.

An attorney (Timothy Daly) rescues Miranda (Kelly Preston) from being beaten up by her abusive boyfriend in a parking lot. Then the two fall in love. However, it turns out that she is a witch as well as a runaway from her coven and they want her back. It turns out to be a satanic cult and they spend the picture chasing the two lovebirds all over town. Ends with a good twist. This movie is wonderfully hammy although sure to offend Wiccans everywhere.

Do Not get this unless you wish a Disney version. Violence and sex are gone. I was very disappointed with this version. A real waste of time and money

I'll tell you what, this was the movie that got me started on buying movies. Why? After I bought and viewed this movie, I thought all movies that I purchased were going to be of this quality. Sadly, I was mistaken. This is absolutely the best suspense movie I've ever seen. Period. This is a story even my strict christian grandmother enjoyed. Talk about a surprise ending, M. Night Shymalan may have learned a thing or two from this movie. I won't spoil it for you. Just go out and find it.

The story starts with a young lady being physically abused seemingly by man she knows. Her knight in shining amor saves her and takes her into his home and life. Unbeknownst to him, she's being persued heavely by a powerful demonic cult. They seem to need her for some type of sacrafise. Will they get it and if so, how? Excellent but not overpowering special effects and pretty decent acting make this a movie I can watch numerous times. If you enjoy suspense movies, this should be right up your alley. When will the DVD be available? Hurry hurry hurry with it please!!!

I watched this movie around 1995 or so and I loved it. The storyline was very well thought out and it will fool you from the beginning to the very end. It was real nice to see Tim Daly in a different kind of roll than his "Wings" character. He proves in this movie that his acting tallents go far beond comedy. Spellbinder in no way shape form or fashion got even close to the recognition that it should have. It I suppose flew under the radar of most with all the exceptional movies put out in the early nintys. I assure you you will not be in any way (EXCEPT with someones demise @ the very end)displeased with this purchase

Disclaimer: First of all, it is important to mention that these types of films do not necessarily represent actual Satanic philosophy and practices, but are appreciated for entertainment value.

A lawyer becomes enamored of a beautiful girl named Miranda (who wields glamor & Greater Magic well) after rescuing her from an abusive boyfriend. He later finds out she is actually a witch, sought after by a murderous coven. She appears to have "Samanthitis" - that is, a witch falling in love with a "muggle", as it were (see Bewitched). They appear on several occasions attempting to reintegrate her into the cult. Among them, is a "Mrs. White", a kindly grandmother who harasses and frames him.

He eventually seeks the aid of a survivalist with the likely name of "Brock", who operates a veritable compound, but is no match for the power of the cadre of cultists. Seems he received the brain blender treatment. Despite all of their desperate attempts (including her Magic), they cannot fully fend off the evildoers who consistently prove to be far too clever and potent at every turn.

He begins hallucinating as they appear to him; in one remarkable scene, a Warlock levitates his little Porsche, bursting out the windows. He finally visits the stately mansion where they congregate, and is attacked by a Martial Artist cultist; also displayed therein, an impressive ritual chamber decorated with a Sabbatic Baphomet on a wall, and a pentagram upon the floor. As he flees therefrom, he finds his little car torched.

Finally, in search for his dream girl, he arrives at a beach during a ceremony where he is lured to be the night"s "sacrifice" (who had to come forth willingly}. A discernible The Devils Rain influence is detected here.
