Movie Reviews

Good For One Watching
Joshua Koppel | Chicago, IL United States | 01/15/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This film is not as bas as some would make it seem, although there is plenty of bad acting.Some strange guys are out hunting a coven of witches. When a young girl is introduced to the ceremony, they jump the gun and there is a lot of death. The surviving strange guy adopts the girl (Rebecca). The story jumps ahead twelve years and we find Rebecca on her 18th birthday.Rebecca is heir to some power and first learns of it as she meets a mysterious man named Roman. He gives her a powerful amulet but may not be what he seems. At one point he seems like he is going to sacrifice Rebecca but is interrupted. Later he seemingly has to put those plans on hold when she loses her virginity and must regain her lost power.Much of the story concerns Rebecca who has had a less than happy home life and is just starting to feel empowered. Between her powers and the amulet, she struggles with morality and the rush of power. It all comes to a head in the end with a far better ending than I was expecting.The acting may be wooden in many scenes but Rebecca's struggle and the final resolution lift it up a notch. There is plenty of nudity although much, if not most, is male, thus making this an unusual film."
Good flick but horrible ending.

"This is a low-budget, direct-to-video horror movie but still a very good one nonetheless. It is about a witch who turns 18, discovers she was a witch since birth by meeting a warlock where she is given an amulet. She uses the amulet to increase her physical powers & get revenge on people who've been mean to her in the past. Her little sister gets sick & possesed by evil spirits so she & the warlock team up to fight the evil together.
The movie's camerawork is great, the special effects are pretty good, the acting is good most of the times, the music is also good for this flick.
The ending where the battle the evil seems more like a Power Rangers show than what you'd want to see in a movie. It seems too forced & staged to be taken seriously.
Natalie Sutherland is Rebecca, the 18-yo. with the amulet, she's the best-looking of the 3 & also has the most uneven moments, especially when she first uses the amulet to exact some revenge. Danny Wolske is Roman the warlock, he's good-looking but nothing like the other 2 lead women in the flick. Laura Nativo is Erin, Rebecca's little sister, she does the best acting job of the 3.
I only found out about this by digging around in the bargain at my place looking for some cool titles & got this one."
Really Bad
Heather Hays | Goodfellow-AFB, TX United States | 05/26/2005

"I watched about ten minutes of this before I had to turn it off. I agree with the other reviewers that the acting does suck. In fact, it's so bad that it was like the actors were actually trying to do such a terrible job. I've seen better acting on an episode of Sesame Street.

The main characters are two high school seniors, I think. They both look about thirty. At first glance, I was hoping this would be one of those underground gems that simply didn't get much publicity like "Ginger Snaps".

Yeah, don't buy this. Don't even rent it. Go buy yourself a candy bar with that money instead. Or rent "Ginger Snaps", which is far superior."
Wow... Just wow.

"Um, yeah. If you want to watch a movie with really bad acting and special effects, then have a party and invite all your friends. But seriously, that's all it is. Another thing: Usually the main character is the prettiest one, but no. In this movie, the main character's sister is really pretty while she's like... what some would call second rate. She's just average. Her sister takes the spotlight away from her when they're in a scene together. It's like... what's the point? Oh, and the ending is like so abrupt and stupid. I was like "Really... that's it?" Not worth the time...

... but if you know about all of this stuff (like acting and special effects and stuff), it's a really funny movie to watch. Especially at 1:30 in the morning."
