      victor o Every once in a while, I cannot help but take the time to watch a B-Movie. Especially one with extremely gorgeous women – Nicole Eggert, Lana Clarkson, Maria Ford. I mean just, wow! Jim Wynorski doesn't disappoint as he delivers the type of movies he does best, full of hot women and shlock. So, it's surprising that this is based on an Edgar Allen Poe story. Morella, a woman accused of witchcraft curses the town that condemns her to death, vowing to return as her husband and baby daughter watch her die as well. Years later comes to the daughter as she looks exactly like her mother but she is innocent and looking to come into her inheritance wicked forces out to fulfill her mother's wishes are wreaking havoc upon the town. The story isn't half bad, with some modest acting from some of the people like David McCallum in his time before the niche he carved doing NCIS. Lana Clarkson with her gorgeous looks showed she could do creepy. Nicole Eggert is fine, but she overdoes it at times going from sweet and innocent to evil. Still, this movie is not without its charm, and it is worth watching. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A woman practicing witchcraft is executed but returns 17 years later in the body of her daughter. Adaptation of an Edgar Allen Poe story with bathtub scenes added that Poe must have accidentally omitted. Pretty bad but has plenty of eye candy. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member "Great old film, based on the creation of Edgar Alan Poe. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Edgar Allen Poe story gets the Corman/New Horizons treatment. The premise is given away at the start so Wynorski has to make up for suspense appropriately. Nicole Eggert only hints at her inevitable unleashing in BLOWN AWAY. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Yea-no. This movie was a total farce using an Edgar Allen Poe short story to get someone interested and some of the cast out of their clothes. Pass at all costs.
