not one of the better titles in the series, and not the last either.
23 September 2005 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Jeff Lawton goes to a strip club (where nobody strips) with a woman, and leaves with another one. They have sex, and a black-robed figure with a black mask shows up. The figure's eyes light up red, and Jeff's dead body is found with his face burned, and a serpentine symbol cut into his chest.

Will Spanner visits Cindy Lawton, the Lawtons being good friends of his

  • Jeff his best friend, in fact, even though he hadn't been in any of

the previous eleven Witchcraft movies. Reluctant warlock Spanner was in most of the previous ones (all but 8 and 10, and in the first two he has different surnames), though I didn't catch here if he was still working as a lawyer. He's played here by a different actor, again. This may be the first one in which he had a tattoo (on his shoulder, possibly a Chinese dragon) and a nipple ring.

More men are being killed, lured by several different women to where the black-robed figure shows himself. The symbol proves to be that of the Order of Shades (that's what I heard, others online have heard it as the Order of Chase), a 16th Century cult devoted to the snake-god Malleus.

There are a number of sex scenes, which unlike the strip club, do feature some nudity. There's not a lot of Witchcraft. The black-robed figure can shoot red lightning out of his red eyes. Spanner supposedly used some witchcraft to pursue the cult, but we don't see that. He has a book that Cindy calls a spellbook, but from what we see of it, it appears to be a book about depictions of witchcraft and vampires in popular culture. Spanner can shoot blue lightning out of his hands, though, and his eyes light up too.

Not terribly good. The sound quality was fairly poor at times, rendering the dialogue muffled.
