Did You Know?

Because Barbara Steele was only available for one day, she was kept on the set during 18 hours. For many years to come, she wouldn't speak to the producer again.See more »
Revealing mistakes: When drowning the witch using the dunking machine, the witch appears to be in no danger of drowning. The water never quite reaches her head.See more »

I laughed, 9 August 2008
Author: bre_anna

Hello, this odd film has had some s**t reviews and I feel I have to wade in and defend this monster. It's actually quite funny, the old witch looks extraordinarily ugly and her screaming had me laughing and laughing. I'd recommend this to anyone who can laugh at the very awful and enjoys a good cheesy political comment. Come on old fart reds, (it's all over now anyway), the hammer and sickle scene is meant to be as ridiculous as the rest of the film. I recommend that this wonderful film gets its very own category: Horror/Ridiculous plus a Bit of Nasty. The only horror in the film stems from how awful people can really be, and it works.
