I have to admit that I adore this film because it actually has real old-fashioned honest-to-goodness *evil* witches! After decades of “witches they were persecuted and Wicca good and love the earth and woman power and I’ll be over here,” we finally get three honest-to-God devil-worshiping, child-murdering, disembodied-organs-and-appendages-in-their-potions-using stregas worthy of Shakespeare and Goya. This may be the only film in cinematic history that portrays the Salem witch-hunters as sympathetic! That's insane! I love it!
