No Spoilers

Not much to say about this. Quite why it's an 18 is beyond me - must be the 'cuts' some other reviewer was talking about - but then if the authorities are going to insist on cuts make the certificate lower to reflect that this is a paler version. Because quite frankly if they think that even after the 'cuts' this is an 18 then they are woefully out of touch, Tea-time soaps are scarier than this version.

As for the film the quality was good enough but the suspense and scariness- seemed forced as if they trying too hard to be scary and so failed dismally. and as for the sex appeal of this cert then there simply was none. so no bad language, no person on person violence, not much sex (one scene ripped off from 'to the devil a daughter', 'rosemary's baby, and a score of others' and that was it.

Hasslehoff wasn't as off putting as I thought he'd be and to be fair gave a reasonable performance. (for him) didn't over act so fair play.
Blair was either woefully under used / mis used or just isn't the actress I thought she was. Sadly I think it's likely 60% that latter. I've seen several things where she just doesn't seem to be 'invested' in the character. Perhaps it's just hard to top a breakthrough performance like the exorcist.

the rest of the cast were unknown to me and so I hadn't seen them before and unsurprisingly I doubt I'll ever see them in anything else.

to sum up - film techs adequate, acting week to adequate. story rehashed derivatives. star performers one better than expected one less than expected. I get the feeling there were a couple of scenes that were the impetus for the whole film and the rest was bodged on to justify them and 'hold the whole thing together'. - poorly.

ACID TEST: would I buy again/recommend? NO

Loved the show when I had it on VHS and so happy to have it again. Suspense and story are marvellous with the cast doing a great job putting you in the picture, feeling all the emotions that surround this picture that I rated this an A grade classic from the past. A young woman has dreams and being inquisitive goes to an island to do pictures and a story. Now things happen and they seem to be stopping people leaving the island one by one something happens, can't tell you all as that will spoil it and now that must not happen should it. Linda Blair and David Hasselhoff are the main actors but the story itself is fabulous. So enjoy yourself by putting your feet up and relaxing for a night in with great full on entertainment that will have you wondering what's next. Enjoy!

The movie itself is pretty good for it's time, but the cuts made by the BBFC are just pathetic.

The "boobie" shots in the rape scene have been cut out completely, now that is pathetic.

Why not just cut the whole scene all together?

The movie still works pretty well but if you want your movies to be uncut, beware of this one!

Proberly the worse film on 'Witchcraft' in its time. Its soo bad that David Hasselhoff is seen sitting around in this house with nothing to do bit get bored. Its really a low-budget movie that I felt didnt really deserve any where near one star let alonea'five'. Youd have to a huge fan of 'the Hoff' and B-movies to give this one five..Believe me, this film is 'BAD' with a capital 'B'.

I saw this DVD on sale for 99p somewhere and thought I'd give it a go - I love supernatural horror movies. However, I can think of much more worthwhile things to spend 99p on! It is so cheesy that you can smell it a mile off, the acting is poor, it's predictable, and obviously quite budgeted.

Unless you really have nothing better to do on a dark and dingy winters evening, don't go there. There are so many better ways to waste your time.

This is one of the better histories of Witchcraft that I have viewed and has participation from several modern Witches in presenting their own history. It contains the ethics of Wicca and is very positive towards practitioners. It is a British production so it has only a slight reference to America-Salem of course.

It also has the obligatory Christian clergyman to offer his interpretation but he is less judgmental than most spokesmen for his faith and his comments are often quite intelligent instead of the usual uninformed and unreasonable statements. There are parts of a production of "MacBeth" by the same company that produced this DVD, which are performed throughout and which are quite good, making this reviewer want to see the whole thing. I would rate this production four out of five.
