Storyline

In 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts, young Ann Putnam accuses several residents of being witches, and they are tried and put to death. In 1980, young Loreen Graham is on a school outing to the Salem Witch Museum when a wax figure of a man from 1692 comes to life and accosts her. It seems that she may be the reincarnation of Ann, who has accused the man's 5-year-old girl of witchcraft and the girl is scheduled to be burned at the stake. Loreen must fight being possessed by Ann Putnam and confront the evil minister from 1692 who is consorting with Ann to falsely accuse people of witchcraft. Written by 2manydvds

Goofs

During the witch trials in Salem during the 17th century, no one was burned at the stake. Executions were performed by hanging, and one male prisoner was pressed to death by heavy stones. However, this 'pressing to death' of Giles Cory was not a punishment. It was an effort to get him to plead innocent or guilty. It is from this method of getting information that we get the modern term of "pressing a person for information." See more »

I was surprised to find myself really enjoying this film!
2 December 1998 | by Cal-16See all my reviews

Time travel is a fun concept, and this film gives it a different slant. I got a kick out of Captain Billingham, one of the more down-to-earth characters, who was just not having a good day. Ordinarily, I don't choose to watch horror films, but this is an exception. Good story, excellent acting.
