I remember watching this movie on cable ages ago as a kid and I enjoyed it.Now as an adult I love it: Great acting, great dp work,story is funny,sexy,dark and sassy. Special effects are not bad at all considering it's a 1987 flick.

A strange man,apparently summoned by three frustrated women, shows up in a perfectly ordinary American town. He soon will change their lives for the better or the worse.Filled with magic, symbolism and detail, the movie catches our attention from the start.

However, like another reviewer pointed out, the only difference between this DVD release and the one from 1997 is the case. The image and sound are not bad but the movie hasn't been restored at all.Some scratches and white speckles are present throughout the film.

My advice is, if you own the 1997 version of this DVD don't waste your money buying this reissue...Unless you like the new cover better.

Beautiful, intense, funny and outrageous horror film that mixes with the "toxic" humour of Jack Nicholson as the devil. Cher, Susan Surandon and Michelle Phiefer are excellent in their roles as three sexy women bored out of their mind by their lives, and wish for the perfect man to arrive. When a strange and mysterious man by the name of Darrell Van Horne arrives in their New England town, he bewitches the three friends and they come together as one and become their opposites, as this strange man entangles them into a world of magic, witchcraft, sex and food. When the girls realize that this man may be the devil in disguise, they take precaution and decide to rebel against him...that is until he finds out and their troubles get even worse. This film is wonderfully scored by John Williams (Jaws, Hook) and his music suits the film amazingly. The ending to me, as others have said the opposite, is totally fit for this film and those babies are very cute! All the actors and actresses involved, especially Jack Nicholson and four lead girls, are absolutely superb in their roles. Overall, I'd have to disagree with those reviewers and critics who say this is a bad movie. It is not...it's very riveting and funny, with thrills and chills mixed in with it. Devine entertainment.

This film has an ensmble cast to end all ensemble casts.. what more could you ask for.. Jack nicholson as the devil.. Cher, Susan Sarandon, and (the impeccable) Michelle Pfiefer as three sultry sexy witches.. Darrel Van Horn comes to the town of Eastwick when he is summoned by three witches who have been scorned or hurt by the men they loved.. Cher Plays Alex, whose husband died and left her to raise a daughter by herself.. Michelle plays Suki, a newspaper journalist whose husband abandoned her because she got preganant all the time.. and Susan plays Jane, the divorced elemntary school music teacher.. Van Horn moves into each of their lives his own way and shows them the potential they always felt was there.. once the girls realize what is really going on, they exact their revenge.. A great, fun and Witty movie.. a must see..

First of all, if you're going to see this movie, remember not to take it too seriously. It does touch on some serious subjects, and is of course meant to make you think, but above all, it's a COMEDY. It's silly and raunchy and FUN. Don't read too much into it.

That being said... This movie is great! If you're a fan of Sarandon, Cher, Pfiefer, or Nicholson, you'll probably like it. If you're a fan of all 4, you'll love it. There aren't any Oscar-calibur performances here, but you can tell the actors just had a lot of fun with their characters (which I always find entertaining).

Susan Sarandon's is the most fun to me, as she goes from super-dowdy to a free-spirited sexual being. And you've got to love Jack Nicholson being suave and evil as only Nicholson can be. Plus, Cher with huge infomercial hair!

Combine that with all kinds weird religious messages, and you've got yourself a movie!

That old Jack magic has us in his spell in the ultimate Nicholson part -- old Scratch himself. He is undisputably the star of "The Witches of Eastwick," despite formidable competition from his unlikely coven of modern day Rhode Island witches played delightfully by Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon.

One dark night over Cheez Whiz and martinis, the three women lament the lack of good men, wishing idly for the ideal lover -- "a dark prince, traveling under a curse, on a dark charger." They clink a toast to a thunderclap. And suddenly out of the wet New England woods, something wicked their way comes -- in a speeding black Mercedes with extra running lights and the power to leap potholes. Daryl Van Horne, cloven hoofs hidden under his Lakers high-tops, makes his entrance into quaint, colonial Eastwick. He's a supernatural cutup, equal parts blasphemy, brimstone and catnip.

When John Updike wrote his risque' 1984 best seller, he was definetely dancing on the edge of antihereo in Van Horne. Screen writer Michael Cristofer compounds the chaos with a beguiling brew of satanic spoof, sexual bickering, monster mash and Gothic slapstick comedy. If Hawthorne were alive and well in the '80s and inclined to caffeine abuse, he might have penned this frantic genre-bender, with its uninhibited exploration of repression's fruits -- political and physical -- with Daryl as devil's advocate to the women's movement. The sly chauvinist is against liberation, unless it's sexual. But he is not above using feminist propaganda to flatter and seduce the trio who inadvertently summoned him. Naturally, they find him irresistible. (Each of them manless and sorely oppressed in Eastwick.
