Go To

1994 sequel to Cast a Deadly Spell.

Detective Philip Lovecraft (Dennis Hopper) lives in Los Angeles in the 1950s when an ambitious Senator is holding hearings, on Magic. Magic is the new influence in Tinsel Town. Lovecraft is unique in that he is the only one who refuses to use magic in his work. Shortly after he is hired, he finds his client, Kim Hudson, accused of the murder of her husband, a film executive. Philip uses the tallents of a local witch, Kropotkin, to explain what is happening only to see her accused of the murder and sentenced to be burnt at the stake.

Not to be confused with the game of the same name.


This film features examples of:

  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In-universe example. At a drive-in movie, an onscreen man shooting a gun actually injures movie watchers.
  • Frying Pan of Doom: Tyrone holds up one to threaten Lovecraft. Lovecraft distracts him and pushes it into his face, knocking him out.

How well does it match the trope?
