Storyline

A family moves into a long-condemned New England household with a big pond out back that everybody loves to swim in. Soon, however, they find that the pond was the site of the execution- by-drowning of a witch three hundred years before, and she's back to revenge herself on anybody nearby, whether they're Catholic or not.

a witch determined to get even with anyone who nears black pond!
11 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie is great to be low budget! one of the best i have seen in a long time! kinda makes me laugh and shiver each time i watch it. truly a classic of it's time. add it to your collection right away! the mood is okay, the tone is spooky,the music is super and the story line makes sense.the first time i saw this movie on the shelf of a nearby mom and pop shop i read the back cover and knew right a way that this was not one of those lame phoney movies. i took it home poped into the VCR and was able to watch the whole movie from start to finish! although this movie did not spook me as bad as some others i have seen, it did loom gloom over me just while if u can find this movie rent it or better yet by it u won't regret it!
