Editorial Reviews

Need someone with demonic dash to portray the Devil? There are only two choices. Old Ned himself. And Jack Nicholson. The Witches of Eastwick to the better actor-and came up with the sleekest, sexiest supernatural comedy/thriller to emerge from this or any other world, earning Nicholson 1987 Best Actor Awards from the New York and Los Angeles Film Critics. The "witches" are in three modern-day women yearning for Mr. Right in a quaint New England town full of Mr. Uptights. Played glowingly by Cher (Moonstruck), Susan Sarandon (Lorenzo's Oil) and Michelle Pfeiffer (The Age of Innocence), they're lovely enough to tempt even the most jaded netherworld denizen. Soon, wealthy Daryl van Horne (Nicholson) arrives. Is his sudden appearance a coincidence? Or the outcome of the women's unconscious sorcery in this smooth adaptation of John Updyke's novel? Conjure up an evening's entertainment with The Witches of Eastwick. And have a devil of a good time.

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!

From the director who brought us Mad Max comes a modern-day fairy tale of sorts that examines the age-old battle of the sexes. Alex (Cher), Jane (Susan Sarandon) and Sukie (Michelle Pfeiffer) are three single women who live in the sleepy New England town of Eastwick. Since all of them lack a man in their lives, and are dissatisfied with the ones who are in town, they wish for a handsome stranger to visit. Miraculously, their wish is granted when Daryl Van Horne (Jack Nicholson) strolls into town and succeeds in turning their lives (and the town's) upside down. For the most part, I thought that the story was very effective in setting up its characters and giving them depth, even Daryl. The three women who are the titular "Witches of Eastwick" were all distinct personalities and had situations that made you care about them. Generally speaking, the performances were all very good, although Jack Nicholson towers above the rest of the cast as he brings his brand of insanity to what is essentially the devil in human form. Even the whole "witch" thing was dealt with rather subtly, as the women only become witches by finding the power within themselves. It is this struggle between male and female power which forms the core conflict of the film, and it is a compelling one even though it has been many times over in various forms. The townspeople are also given some development, although probably not enough to warrant the attention provided them. There are references made to the Salem witch trials, and the wife of the town's newspaper editor (Richard Jenkins...with hair!) acts as the mouthpiece for morality when the the three "witches" start their relationship with Daryl. Despite this interesting aside, I think it detracts a little bit from the main conflict.Read more ›
