The witch is back works on many levels from digging into the mythology, utilizing a great story line and featuring one of the best vanquishes you have to see to believe. Taylor Layton is a great actress with a fresh face and old worldly charm. Her smile could light up a room and her voice is music to my ears. I could but her character being from the past and installing forgotten wisdom onto the witches.

Billy Wirth was sexy, seductive and dangerous with a great connection to the over all story arch. His portrayal seemed ancient, serious and very threatening. His interactions with the girls was always random, used to the fullest while displaying his deadly nature to perfection. While his plan seemed a little shallow and repetitive his character arch made it into a grand scheme only an evil genius could formulate.

Its one of my favorites that I look forward to on each re watch and I always pick up something new each time. That's what great story telling does when your heart and soul is in it.
