This movie isn't horrible but it isn't the best either. There isn't any elements of horror to it. It tries to sound like an after school special on the dangers of witchcraft at times but it didn't try hard enough to make me believe there was any danger in it. In fact the whole film is more of a situational drama/thriller of cliches based on all social perspectives of witchcraft. The plot is slow and predictable. So much that you know exactly where one scene is leading to another. Even the climactic end.
The movie has it's 70's sort of charm with cheeky immemorible actors. Nude scenes tend to fill in the dull moving pace. It probably would be better as a drive in movie.
I am not going to highly recommend this film to everyone. It definitely has that "cult" film thing going for it. No pun intended. It just seems a specific someone not everyone will enjoy this film. If that is you, then more power to ya.
The movie itself? I'm not sure how much help "remastering" can be with a film this slapdash, but I'll bet it's been a long time since this movie looked this - "good" is too strong a word, but credit where it's due, the colors certainly pop and it there are a lot fewer scratches or jump-cuts than you'd fear. It's a pretty typical Eurosleaze Horror Potboiler, full of (very) softcore sex (a lot of it lesbian), music that's ridiculously out of place for a film of this type, acting that ranges from mediocre to laughable, and a plot that - well, I think it's about a young innocent model being seduced into a cult of witches...only she's not that innocent after all!
If you hear the name Vicki Michelle and you jump in your seat, you want to see this movie. (Note, after my terrible experience with Bloodsucker Leads the Dance a few weeks back: while Redemption Video got their hands on this, thankfully, that is not the cut you can find on Netflix Instant as I write this.) If you don't, then you can safely pass it by without a worry, but to fill you in: Michelle played Yvette, one of the perpetually-horny waitresses in the smash Britcom 'Allo Allo! in the eighties and early nineties. And that, my friends, is absolutely, positively the only reason you would want to watch this otherwise ridiculous waste of celluloid.
Plot: Michelle and her sister Ann play (not surprisingly) sisters Betty and Christine, new to London, slightly lonely, and looking for jobs as models. Betty is the first to find herself a beau, Johnny (The Spy Who Loved Me's Keith Buckley), but Christine is the first to land herself a job. It involves a photo shoot out at a country estate and, since she has no idea what she's in for, Christine only agrees to do it if Betty will go along. The agency agrees, and off they go into the country. They soon learn that the house is, anecdotally, located on a site that was the home of many pagan rituals back in the old days. And perhaps in the not-so-old days...
All of which could make for a good atmospheric Brit horror film in the right hands (read: Hammer's), but Austin--who made only one feature film after this (1974's Curse of the Dead), but became a very popular TV director until the turn of the century--uses the plot as a premise for getting Ann Michelle out of her clothing as much as possible.Read more ›

This is a movie to fit a certain liking in the horror genre. I really liked the movie although it is not terrifying , it fits good for a witch movie.Published 5 days ago by Herbert Hutchinson
