Stupid Witch
30 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Obscure black and white TV programme from the early sixties which was to be part of a long running spooky/horror series to rival the Twilight Zone but didn't. Studio bound and poor scripting put paid to this at the first hurdle, narrator Franchot Tone is no match for the sublime Rod Serling and looks to have shot his scenes while he was waiting for his cab to arrive.

The plot for want of a better word concerns a young woman who is housemaid for Madame Tirelou, a supposed witch,when said woman wants to marry her love,Louis and escape this life, he gets a curse placed on him. Cue the old voodoo doll act, Louis' friend, Fred arrives for the wedding and dismisses this as superstition and vows to do something about it. More shadowy shots, a bit of pushing and shoving at the witch's house and it's all over. For such an alleged powerful witch,her demise is overtly prosaic.

Only a convincing performance by Darren McGavin as Fred, saves this and makes it worth watching. An interesting curio piece of what might have been but nothing more.
