Not a bad,if not tame,movie
6 December 2000 | by aesgaard41See all my reviews

I really miss not seeing Pamela Sue Martin as Nancy Drew. This movie is almost a continuation of that role as she moves to an island [without Gilligan] off the Maine coast that is infested with witches. Tim Matheson of "Buried Secrets" is her handsome husband and Barbera Billingsley plays against type as a chilling housekeeper. There's not much of a psychological developement to this movie, but there's a lot of gripping scenes as Martin learns something may be wrong as all her friends keep dying strange deaths. This movie could also be a reprise of her "Poseidon Adventure" character if you count Woody Harrelson of "Cheers" as the adult version of her little brother from that movie. Susan Ruttan and James Sikking also have compelling roles in this as just two of the witches who wish her harm. The special effects are light but excellant and the ending is just a little anti-climactic. If I had made this movie, Pamela would be warring mano-a-mano with sorcery of her own. I really love this movie, but for some reason I wish the Bots and Mike at MST3K had gotten ahold of it and riffed it a little.
