Storyline

Two friends, who both work for the same high-priced, high-powered law firm, are both married to modern day witches. Erica, the wife of Larry, believes that he is being led astray by Carol, an old flame, who also works for the same law firm. Erica decides to act and one night after a torrid sex session Larry drifts off to sleep and begins to dream. Soon the dream turns into a nightmare of sex, violence, murder and death involving himself, his friends and colleagues from the law firm which appears to be frighteningly realistic...

Trivia

Julie Strain and Linda Blair are never seen together in the same scene. Coincidently, Julie Strain's first film appearance, as an uncredited nude woman in a locker room, was also alongside Linda Blair in Repossessed (1990) but they shared no screen time there either. See more »

Late Night Satisfaction
23 March 2000 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

There's an attempt at a story, but who are they trying to kid? Let's get this straight, Sorceress is purely a T&A flick, but it also delivers the goods. I stumbled onto the box at a video store and rented it just because of Julie Strain's name. If you watch any amount of T&A flicks or direct to video B-movies you know when she's the headliner in a movie exactly what you're getting. I wasn't disappointed.

Cheaply filmed, the cast is surprisingly better than you expect to see in this type of material. Though there won't be any acting awards given out. The story with it's witchcraft element is a bit silly and the ending quite stupid, but there's no denying the movie does it's job. Between the ladies featured there's enough T&A to keep you happy and former Penthouse Pet Julie Strain looks great here.
