Editorial Reviews

Gary (David Hasselhoff) and his gal pal Linda (Catherine Hickland) visit an island off the coast of Massachusetts where a haunted resort hotel looms to do research on witchcraft. They're joined by the Brooks family (including a pregnant Linda Blair), prospective buyers of the property. When a violent storm prevents them from leaving the island, they're forced to endure the vengeful wrath of an evil witch who won't quit until every last one of them dies a horrible death!

Witchery (1988) has gone by any number of titles over the years, including the following; Ghosthouse 2, Witchcraft, La Casa 4, Witchcraft: Return of the Exorcist, but no matter which name it's called, the plain and simple fact is it's drecky bit of horror cinema. Produced by the late Aristide Massaccesi aka Joe D'Amato (Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals, Buio Omega), who specialized in horror and softcore porn, often times featured within the same film, Witchery was directed by Fabrizio Laurenti (Troll 3). Starring in the movie is Linda Blair (The Exorcist, Chained Heat), Leslie Cumming (Zombie 5: Killing Birds), David Hasselhoff (Revenge of the Cheerleaders, Starcrash), and David Hasselhoff's perm ("Knight Rider", "Baywatch Nights"). Also appearing is Catherine Hickland ("One Life to Live"), who was married to der Hoff at the time of filming, Annie Ross (Superman III, Basket Case 2), Robert Champagne (Ghosthouse), Rick Farnsworth, Michael Manchester, and Hildegard Knef (The Lost Continent), as the mysterious and sadistic (and annoying) `lady in black'.

As the film begins we see a pregnant woman in a nightgown being chased on a beach into a deserted hotel by a handful of idiots, and given their garb, I suspect this is meant to have happened sometime in the past. This goes on for a bit until the woman meets an untimely demise as she throws herself from an upper window...which transitions into another woman named Jane Brooks (Blair), who's also pregnant, waking with a start, as it was all a dream sequence (or was it?).

4.0 out of 5 stars A gem of low budget, supernatural horror June 8, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I sometimes wonder if the hacks who write copy for DVD companies actually watch the films. Here's the Plot Synopsis as quoted by Amazon:

"A pregnant woman is taken back to the house of her husband's mother."

NOT! Linda Blair is pregnant, but she's entirely unconnected to the house. And her step mother just now bought house as an investment. So Blair is not "taken back" anywhere; she was never there to begin with.

"There she begins to have strange nightmare about her child and step-family."

No she doesn't. She falls through a portal in the bathtub and sees a baby being tortured. Only Leslie Cumming's character has a nightmare, and that concerns being raped by a demon.

"For the husband and mother are actually reincarnated lovers who were burned at the stake for practicing witchcraft."

NOT! No reincarnation in this film. A present day couple are killed, but they're not related to Blair's character. And only the guy (he's single, not anyone's husband) is burned -- on a cross, not a stake. Neither is the witch who's haunting the island burned at the stake -- she jumped out a window to avoid being burned at the stake.

"She must soon escape from their clutches or have her child sacrificed to Satan."

It would be more accurate to say that the witch wants the souls of the island's visitors, so she may live again.

That said, this is a gem of a horror film. Eight people trapped on an island, whereupon the witch haunting it starts killing them, using their own Greed and Lust against them (kind of like how the seven deadly sins dispated people in the Euro-horror film, THE DEVIL'S NIGHTMARE, aka, THE DEVIL WALKS AT MIGHTNIGHT.

I originally saw Witchery when I was a kid (I guess this was around the time it was originally released.) Scared the crap out of me LOL Very creepy and atmospheric with the black and white scenes of the witch being chased by the puritans, not to mention the torture/murder scenes. (Wait and see what happens to Annie Ross's charecter.) This film stars Linda Blair and David Hasselhoff, which strikes me as wierd him being in such a low-budget film at the height of his career. And also with the German actress Hildegard Knef as the lady in black. I have been searching for this film for quite a while with no luck, thank goodness Shriek Show has finally decided to release it. Overall this is very good to be just another cheapie horror film, sure it is cliche with the standard picking off members of the cast deal, but with the imagery this turns out to be a horror film that is actually frightining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spectacularly bad! October 30, 2007
Format:DVD
This may be the worst movie I've seen since Manos, Hands of Fate. Yet I can't rate it poorly purely due to shlock value. When I heard there was an 80's horror flick with Linda Blair AND David Hasselhoff I had to see it! As another reviewer said, when the Hoff is the best thing in a picture, you've got something pretty special. Unfortunately Linda Blair was underused and the 80's cheese was non-existent.

The plot makes no sense. There's no reason given to anything that happens except that Witchcraft is involved somehow. It's German Witchcraft at that, which again makes no sense except a German actress was hired to play the witch and I guess her accent had to be explained. I'm glad someone here explained the pregnant woman in the beginning was being chased by Puritans. That makes a little more sense than what I first thought since the Puritans kind of looked like Mexican banditos chasing the woman through an Old West town. I couldn't figure out what all that had to do with an island outside Boston. There's also a tiny subplot with a little girl in a wheelchair that has no purpose, except if you think girls in wheelchairs are creepy I guess.

The acting, especially by the supporting cast, is outlandishly bad. Usually you have to watch broad comedies satirizing bad acting to see such poor line readings. The actress playing the Hoff's girlfriend either had a speech impediment or was heavily medicated for most of the shoot. She slurred her lines so badly she was often unintelligible. Too bad she was supplying what little exposition there is.

The special effects reminded me of low budget, 70's tv shows on par with something like Shazaam. People mention the constant shifts from day to night within scenes.
