Erica decides to act and one night after a torrid sex session Larry drifts off to sleep and begins to dream.

For what it was, it was pretty good. B+
27 April 2001 | by (Somewhere In Illinois) – See all my reviews

Why this movie doesn't come on Cinemax more often, I don't know. But this was one of the better B-movies I've seen in a while. It's got a great cast of good-looking women and the story wasn't that bad.

Here's the gist of the plot:

Erica Barnes, played by Julie Strain, "dies" early in the movie. She's a modern-day witch, and uses her witchcraft to cast a weird spell over her unsuspecting husband, Larry.

You see, she suspects that her husband is cheating on her with an old girlfriend, Carol, played by Rochelle Swanson (always a favorite of mine). Carol is a blonde early in the movie, but she's brainwashed by the spirit of Erica to dye her hair brown. Now, of course, she looks like Erica. Slowly but surely, Erica begins to take over Carol's thoughts until she can no longer think for herself. It ends in a flurry of bullets, but I'll save the ending for the select few of you who make it that far.

Linda Blair gives a believable performance as Amelia, the other practicing witch in the movie. She battles with Erica through her magic and sorcery as well. Her husband has been relegated to a wheelchair and she's, shall we say, horny. She wants to have an intimate relationship with her husband again, but his injuries prevent that from happening.

In the final analysis: good story, good women, decent sex and a better than average cast make this a movie worth watching.

Sex: B- Women: B+ Story: B+ Overall: B+
