Any signs of good acting or direction seem to have been removed from the film.
on 13 March 2016
Back in the 1980s I replaced most of my collection of 8mm movies with VHS and I have been going through a same process of upgrading to DVD for the last few years. This has given me the excuse to revisit many films that I have not seen for some time.
I am not really sure why I bothered to replace the VHS with a DVD a few years back as this is not a film that I particularly liked the first time around.
At best it is strange and at worst is disjointed and badly edited, one wonders if the correct out-takes ended on the cutting room floor. Certainly any signs of good acting or direction seem to have been removed from the film.
The story itself is not bad, a witch and her warlock husband were burned at the stake in the 17th century and their souls return an inhabit the bodies of a modern couple to attempt to have the child that they were unable to bring into the world in their previous life.
Unfortunately there were a further fifteen sequels all over which got progressively worse between 1990 and 2015 and should be avoided at all costs.
