Film #234: WITCHCRAFT
2.5 out of 5 stars
Directed by Don Sharp (PSYCHOMANIA, KISS OF THE VAMPIRE, CURSE OF THE FLY), WITCHCRAFT is about a witch who gets released from the grave she’d been buried alive in to exact her vengeance after developers plow up her grave to build tract housing. The setup is pure EC Comics and the execution is vintage ‘60s British cinema. A safe (and decidedly bloodless) viewing for young and old alike, WITCHCRAFT is the kind of film you’d see on a Saturday afternoon Creature Features on television… and have a good time doing so. The overall pace of the film is slow and it takes FOREVER for anything to happen, but it’s all in good fun and remains enjoyable. Not great, but not bad.
