Amos (David Warner) Hackshaw refers to his butler as Meadows, which implies that the man has a respectable history to him. Servants are usually addressed by their first names; only those who had a "respectable" earlier career (such as a teacher) are addressed by their surnames. CORRECTION: A butler would never be called by his first name. The family always addressed the butler by his last name only. The staff addressed him as "Mr. ____." The personal maid of the mistress of the house was also addressed by her last name only. Other maids and male servants were addressed by first name. Housekeeper was addressed as "Mrs. ____" and the cook was also addressed as "Mrs. ______" even if she was unmarried. The butler was the only servant who could enter a room without knocking first.

The other reviewers are right!"Cast a Deadly Spell" is great!I usually don't watch made for television horror movies,because I think they are all crap.This one beats every other TV-horror I have seen.The story is very intriguing,the acting is excellent(Fred Ward steals the show as a detective Howard Phillip Lovecraft,who tries to find Necronomicon!)and there are some cool monsters featured here.Check out this very humorous and vital mix of horror,noir and comedy.Great fun!
