Storyline

The mayor and judge of Salem trump up the notorious witch trials in support of their land grab scam. The local clergy pursue justice, while the assistant minister also pursues the town baker, Sara Lee. The action is spiced up by pot-smoking Indians, female New England clam chowder wrestling, and the mischief of a real witch. Written by <rth@ece.arizona.edu>

great fun
4 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I haven't seen this in a while, but I remember watching it over and over again for a while. It's a wonderful spoof situated at the time of the Salem Witch Trials, full of anachronisms and humor. Plus it's a cute love story.
