Great cast with an inventive script ..............................
23 July 2011 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

With Rachel Ward, Judge Reinhold, Anthony LaPaglia, and Brion James, "Black Magic" has the cast to pull off this tale of witches and the supernatural. If you are a fan of any of the above, then this movie certainly is worth a look. It is not predictable, and there are moments of black comedy throughout. The catchy song "Istanbul" is another plus. Definitely not for the slasher crowd, "Black Magic" would be best appreciated by those who like their humor on the dark side. So, if you are in the mood for something out of the ordinary, I suggest visiting Frogmore County, and it's plethora of curious characters. ........ - MERK
