Trivia

Morgan Le Fay appears as Doctor Strange's foe in this TV movie. Oddly enough, Morgan Le Fay was introduced to the modern era of MVL comics in Spider-Woman#2 (after an appearance in a dream in Son of Satan#8), just a few months before the air date of this TV movie, and did not encounter Doctor Strange until Avengers#240-241, published in 1984, six years after this TV movie came out.

Quotes

The Nameless One: Why have you spared him?
Morgan LeFay: I am still a woman. And the man attracts me.
The Nameless One: Then you find no satisfaction in my service?
Morgan LeFay: I would feel the warmth of a mans arms again... after all these years alone...

Excellent movie about a sorcerers apprentice
20 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

A tv pilot that should have been a series. The christian coalition boycotted this excellent portrayal of demonology. The sponsors decided it was too controversial to air as a serial, A real shame, the suspense and eerie soundtrack made for excellent viewing...
