Our Score
In this efficient if rather nonsensical horror, a witch's curse is reactivated when surviving members of the family that persecuted her (including Carolyn Courage and John Nolan) base a horror film on the hex. Inseminoid director Norman J Warren piles on the gleefully gory chills, sleazy thrills and showbiz send-ups (courtesy of David McGillivray's endearingly wonky script), and the nonsensical plot detours (a car levitation being the daftest) just about manage to belie the movie's micro-budget. Huge fun to make (yes, this reviewer is the bearded party guest wrestling the ancient sword out of Courage's possessed hands) as well as to watch, this cheap British riposte to the Italian hit Suspiria is one of the last great British horror independents. And don't miss Glynis Barber getting pinned to a tree with knives!

Summary

The descendants of those responsible for the death of a cunning witch find themselves falling victim to her final, deadly curse in spectacularly painful fashion. Low-budget, blood-soaked horror, which should please gore-hungry genre aficionados. John Nolan, Carolyn Courage, Sarah Keller and Tricia Walsh are among the cast.
