This review is from: The Witches [DVD]  (DVD)
Apparently this was not a success at the time of its release. I don't understand this at all because what Hammer have done here is produce a minor masterpiece in their substantial range of films. The plot needs little explanation as the title tells you everything.
What I will say though is that this is well acted, by a fine cast, equally well directed and most important of all its very well controlled. There is a subtle underlying sense of menace going on in this film, which it would be rare to see in a modern film. In fact but for the last 10 minutes, where the inevitable rituals and costumes see the light of day this would have got 5 stars from me. Only the ending lets it down.
Aside from that its highly recommended. Note this is also in the 21 disc Hammer boxed set as well.
