a fun movie
26 September 1999 | by Scott-216See all my reviews

For the record, I am 25 and quite intelligent. And I really love Midnight Offerings.

I first saw this movie when I was 7 years old, when it first aired on TV. I developed a major crush on the bad witch, Vivian, and a serious fondness for witches in general; many years later, this film was in my mind, somewhere, while I wrote poetry about witches in my first college writing workshop. The impression made by this film was not only deep and permanent, but one which just makes me very happy about my past, my life.

When I saw the film again, finally, a few years ago---well, it isn't a great film. The dialogue really is bad, for the most part, the plot doesn't make much sense, et cetera. But still, it's entertaining, in the way that sub-B-movies are, or in fact much more entertaining even than that. It's delightful. And, I think that those people who gave the film a 10 (as I did) did so not because it is well-constructed, but because they just enjoyed it. It makes a good impression.

And three cheers for Vivian! She still is pretty cool, I say.
