Witchcraft (1988) Review

Witchcraft is a 1988 American horror film directed by Rob Sperling and starring Charles Dance, Bob Peck, and Hilary Mason. The plot follows a group of friends who uncover a dark secret about a witch who is terrorizing their town.

The film is effectively atmospheric and creepy, with some excellent scares. The acting is strong across the board, and the film’s overall atmosphere of dread is palpable.

The film’s main flaw is its pace; it feels like it meanders a bit too much in the middle, and could have been tightened up. Nevertheless, Witchcraft is a solid horror film with some good scares, and is definitely worth a watch.
