a fun, but difficult to find, teen witchcraft movie
6 November 2001 | by (pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This film is based on one of my favorite books from when i was younger. "Summer of Fear", which was written by Lois Duncan, who wrote many teen horror novels in the 70's. It involves a young girl (like most of Duncan's books) who finds herself confronted by the possibility that her 'dear' cousin is actually a witch hell bent on destroying her family and small circle of friends. The main reason im writing this comment is because im having a very tough time finding this film ANYWHERE. If you should happen across this review, and perhaps KNOW where i might find a copy, PLEASE...send up a smoke signal.
