Oh, those psychedelic seventies!
30 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Seeing this movie for the first time, one just might think they are viewing another low-budget piece of silliness. The sets and costumes are so dated, and the location screams Santa Barbara, California.

But there is more than meets the eye!

1) The villain is a phony preacher in a Model T causing mischief wherever he goes. Possibly a nod to "Night of the Hunter"?

2) The location is not Southern California, but rather some nondescript coastal area of Mexico. We never really find out.

3) In spite of the year, there are no typical hippies or drugs. Instead, we find witches and other bizarre things awaiting.

Though the movie does not take itself too seriously, the storyline holds its own very well. There is no excess violence or vulgarity. A real gem!
