Okay horror flick,but nothing special.
2 August 2001 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Witchtrap" has a special place in my heart,mainly because it was one of the first horror movies I have seen.Yep,the acting is pretty awful,the script is laughable,but the gore effects(for example a head explosion)are nicely done.There are some good moments in the picture,which is well-directed by Kevin Tenney("Witchboard","Night of the Demons")and has some pretty cool music too.Finally how can you go wrong with the film,where Linnea Quigley gets killed by a shower!!Recommended.
