If Witchville isnt the worst, its only a step up from that. Essentially a made-for-cable version of that long-delayed Nic Cage flop Season of the Witch, this ancient fantasy has red mist swirling about evil presences, and villages crop failure blamed on witchery. A Bible-thumping oaf gets everyone in town all riled up, spouting nonsense like, The witches leech the plants energy to fuel their dark magic, like a vampire bat sucking life from a lamb.
It sounds even worse when said with a bellowing, menacing accent reminiscent of the SCTV character Count Floyd.
With Malachy (Luke Goss, Death Race 2) leading a band of sword-slingers to go kill them some witches, they go on a journey. They meet an Asian woman with face tats whos not bad at fighting, and Malachy extends an invitation: Join us. We fight witches. He is nothing if not succinct.
The main witch in Witchville is Jozefa (MyAnna Buring, The Descent), but she looks like she jumped out of Red Riding Hood. Her mama witch is played by Superman IIs Sarah Douglas, sporting more pieces of armor than the movie has minutes. And sorry, but I feel as uninspired in this review as the movie. Rod Lott
