For Die Hard Cult Film Fans
20 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is very enjoyable for those who like "bad movies". I thought it was great. The camera work alone has that eerie drive-in look to it and I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.

It's not what you would call "scary" but it does have it's eerie moments. My only problem with the movie was the characters drank a whole lot of coffee. That, and it could have been a little bloodier.

I bought a copy of this film and it's called the "uncut version". It didn't seem to be any different than the one I'd watched years ago. In actuality, the "uncut" version is less violent than most of today's TV shows. But as far as witch movies go, this is by far one of the best.

Diane Webber played The Nautch of Tangier; the witch dancing on the table in the cave. Ms. Webber is the reason I bought the film in the first place.
