solid but disjointed.
6 January 2000 | by (roanoke, va) – See all my reviews

this movie could have easily been closer to an 8 or 9 with a little more attention to the script. the movie, while enjoyable and well made, has a weird disjointed structure that takes away from the all around excellent performances.

of particular note is the stunning performance by Fairuza Balk. she has to have the most hypnotyzing eyes of any actress i've ever seen. i really hope a femme fatalle role is in her future. in addition to having a unique look, she has the ability to get REALLY over the top in the evil category. neve campbell and robin tunney, with ms. tunney being exceptionally beautiful, each deliver solid performances as well.

the movie kicks into special effects overdrive at the end and it doesn't completely fit with the feel and tone with the rest of the movie.

overrall, though i enjoyed it and i recommend it to anyone looking for a above average witch flick.

rating:7
