Review

Our Score
The fact that this dark Australian story is based on actual events lends it a ghoulish fascination, but director Scott Hartford-Davis fails to hold back the melodramatic tide. Jacqueline Bisset plays the glamorous grandmother who's accused by son-in-law Cameron Daddo of witchcraft and kidnapping after his daughter disappears. When Bisset counters by accusing the despicable Daddo of abusing his own daughter, the drama becomes hysterical.

Summary

Fact-based drama about a man's struggle to locate and rescue his daughter, who has been spirited away by her scheming occult-obsessed grandmother. Unfortunately, his claims that the old woman is a witch provoke only derision. Starring Jacqueline Bisset, Cameron Daddo, Jerome Ehlers and Suzi Dougherty.
