Almost Worth Watching for Two Really Bad Scenes
22 October 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Witchcraft VIII: Salem's Ghost (1996)

* (out of 4)

This eighth film in the series goes against the grain by trying something different and not being connected to the previous seven entries. This time out a couple buy a home and soon discover a mysterious, covered up room in the basement. It turns out this room was used 300 years earlier when a warlock was put to death and now his spirit is causing trouble. WITCHCRAFT VIII is another weak entry in a pretty bad series but I guess it's at least better than the previous film so that's a good thing. Actually, there are a couple moments here that are so incredibly bad that you can't help but recommend the film to people. The first up is an incredibly bad take off on the 9 1/2 WEEKS scene where the couple has sex in front of the fridge and using all sorts of food. The sequence here is just so laughable and it's certainly never erotic. Another hilarious scene is a rip on THE EXORCIST when the priest arrives at the house. The scene is iconic in THE EXORCIST but here it's shot in the daylight with an ultra cheap fog machine. The rest of the film is pretty laughable at times including the dorky neighbors who are always getting trouble started up. The horror elements are very small and laughable but even the sex scenes are rather boring here. WITCHCRAFT VIII is clearly just for those crazy enough to work their way through the series.
