Trivia

This is Linda Blair's only portrayal as a mother in waiting in a feature film. Also interesting to note is that the father is never once mentioned or referred to. Blair had, however, also played a pregnant woman in her earlier television guest appearance in Murder, She Wrote: Murder Takes the Bus (1985). See more »

Goofs

After the helicopter leaves the island, it is the middle of the night when Leslie and Gary first go into the house, yet it is the middle of the day when they finally get upstairs - all in the space of a few seconds. See more »

Quotes

Jane Brooks: [possessed by the Lady in Black] There are three doors to the darkside. Lust, avarice, and ire. Linda for the lust, Rose for the greed, and ire for the persecuted witch.

Better then I thought it be
18 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Witchcraft (1988)is name of this movie on my DVD

Just found this is now called Witchery (1988) Not to be confused with Witchcraft (1988) (I Like I did)

I thought it was it the other witchcraft but so I didn't expect to see David Hasselhoff and Linda Blair

The movie start of in the women running away from some and soon Jumps out of window for some reason but the movies fast

When a storm strands a group on a Massachusetts island where the only dwelling is an old hotel supposedly haunted by the ghost of a former German actress (Knef), the result is the standard horror film as each of the cast is picked off one-by-one

This was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, It never get boring at all, there were decent death scenes in this movie.

There few bloody moments in the movie I really liked, I wasn't to keen it the end the story.

it's felt too rushed and I didn't really get the last scene in the movie.

The acting was really good from most of the cast

I give 4 out of 10, worth watching
