      Michelle Alexandria Eclipse Magazine Rated: 2/5 Sep 2, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jun 12, 2005 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com Rated: 1/5 Jan 27, 2004 Full Review Kurt Dahlke Apollo Guide There is some small enjoyment, besides that found in wasting a few minutes with television history, in the silly, pulpy quality of the proceedings.

      matthew d This one was an enjoyable classic witch tale w original writing. Pretty teenagerish but not bad. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/28/23 Full Review damian l It was one of Wes Craven's minor good ones and one of Linda Blair's good roles Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty solid for a 70s TV horror film. It's fairly vanilla, but that's to be expected with its limitations, but even with its restraints it's a fun and fairly intense story. Linda Blair is great as the terrorized youth. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Joel C This is a good TV movie about a changeling who practices witchcraft. The theme is one that Craven has used many times throughout his career - a teenager goes through some crazy scenario and the adults who are supposed to protect them from harm do not believe anything the teenager says. This film takes that a bit too far at times, but it makes sense because once you're under the witches spell your mind becomes foggy. I liked the film from beginning to end, the performances are well done and the story is paced nicely. Those eyes look killer! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/27/21 Full Review steve d Effective adaptation with Craven at the helm. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Highly predictable and boring.
