Witchcraft has never been so boring
13 July 2005 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

Every now and then, I see a film advertised in the TV guide that I'll see for no other reason than the title sounds interesting. Believe it or not, I thought that 'Witches of the Caribbean' sounded interesting. I'm a fan of witch related films, as they often make for good horror and the Caribbean setting was leading me to believe that this might offer something in the way of originality. Any hopes I had for the movie were quickly dashed, however, when I found out that the film was directed by David DeCoteau; a man that has made a whole host of straight-to-video rubbish, including the awesomely bad 'Wolves of Wall Street'. Really, though, all I wanted from this film was some decent magic done by some hot Goth girls in a nice setting. It's safe to say, however, that I didn't even get that. What I did get is a severely under imaginative movie with a cast that is about as impressive as the film's setting - which looks more like a UK holiday resort on a bad day than the Caribbean.

The plot stinks of "cant be bothered" and follows the dull and overly familiar idea of a witch being burnt at the stake, only to be reincarnated centuries later. Not that there's a big problem with this sort of plot; several films, such as Mario Bava's Black Sunday and Roger Corman's The Haunted Palace have took that theme and made it work; but both of those movies had something about them, whereas this one clearly does not. The cast of actors doesn't help the film in it's bid to be successful, as none of them stand out enough to make any kind of lasting impression. The only impression made on any level is just that the actors are irritating; the lead witch, Nicole Marie Monica, being the foremost irritating member of the cast. The special effects are just as bad as the rest of the film, and once again feel like whoever was in charge had something more important on their mind. The awful ending tops off what is a bad movie on the whole and I can tell that if you ever see this film in your TV guide and think it might be worth a watch...think again.
