(br) wrote: This is an interesting, funny and entertaining movie. I almost wish it were not a true story because I would have enjoyed it more if the focus had been on Nina Arianda's character. She is a great actor and I was far more interested at watching her than the other players or even the plot itself.

The acting isn't total rubbish but this movie fails to do what you want it to. Little things stick out and ruin the whole thing. For example the towns preacher that is leaving.. everyscene he is in his pants are terribly wrinkled. Making you realize you are watching a b movie. Things like this show how lazy the directors eye is... and if you can't count on an ironed pair of pants.. don't even try and count on a decent story. I am turning this rubbish off.. anchor bay is usually better than this. This movie is more like a rlj type film with better cinematography. Heed my warning.. I would rather watch TV.. and I really wanted to like this.. sorry slash

If you thought the man was creepy before, there's a particular scene with latex overalls and fire that just cranks it up to 11.Great movie if you love the 80's. The visuals are awesome, a combination of 50's scenery and cars mixed with tons of neon and 80's punk dress/music. Plot is so-so -the concept is straightforward but halfway through the movie it turns into a live action series of TV Tropes (which are fun, don't get me wrong, but derail the plot a bit). There are numerous scenes where the actors are clearly reading rather than performing their lines, and there's no chemistry between the male lead and his damsel in distress. But seeing Rick Moranis hamming it up as a sniveling business manager, Bill Paxton in a bit part as a wimpy barkey, Amy Madigan as a surprisingly interesting Action Girl and a young William Defoe being a creepy creeper of all creeps is more than worth it.If you want a movie that will trigger 80's nostalgia and is a good romp to watch with a beer, this is it. If you're looking for art, you probably want something else. But this movie is what gave us the 80's hit song 'I Can Dream About You', and for that alone I give it top marks. )

Veronica Lake makes a giddy witch, not as bothered by her interloping father Cecil Kellaway as Samantha Stevens would later be by Agnes Moorehead. The plot: father and daughter witches are freed from an old tree where they had been imprisoned for 270 years and decide to wreak some havoc in the life of the descendant of their accuser; love happens.
