Trivia

According to Douglas Snauffer, his shared screenwriters credit on this movie was primarily contractual. He was hired to write an early draft of the script, but most of his material was discarded by director David P. Barton. "Dave had a very strong vision of where he wanted this movie to go," Snauffer has stated, "and he is a very capable writer. Dave did a great job of making the movie he wanted to make, and he deserves the credit for his work." See more »

Quotes

[repeated line, chanted by all the zombies]
Abi's Victims: Do you know what happens when you're dead and rotting? Your flesh turns putrid and your clothes start spotting. Your belly bloats up, your guts turn to chum, your eyeballs turn purple like overripe plums. Your skin turns black with a putrefaction gleam, pus drips from your pores like whipping cream. Yes, it's no fun being rotting and dead. It's no fun at all; enough has been said.

Original and entertaining joint venture between Full Moon and Tempe. I'm not a fan of the raw Tempe style but this is among the better Tempe films - all of which were joints with the far superior Full Moon.

Well acted, written and directed with script highlights including the 'dead & rotting chant'. When the local Witch (obviously no cliché here as she is an old 'hag') becomes a young, nubile Debbie Rochon the film takes a new direction with Rochon sizzling her way through the naughty boys aiming for a spectacular revenge. Fairly tame overall this is a light hearted and humorous foray in to fantasy Witchcraft. DVD (Tempe Special Edition) has a number of special features including one of (oh so many) J.R. Bookwalter Cine-Camera produced short films (oh so terrible) which is a 'spoof' of TV series 'Hill Street Blues' as well as a making of and a few trailers (for films you should probably avoid) and interviews.
