Review: I guess I’m a fan of these kinds of movies. It was from the producers of Underworld, which I loved. The story was interesting, nothing I’ve heard of before. Knowing a little about the Salem Witch Trials was nice, but not needed in the story. The action was neither constant, nor non-existent. The effects were good, though at some points were, not cheesy, but not great. Of course there was a love story, which spawned some un-needed material, but also added a nice relief at times. I liked the movie, but if you’re skeptical of this genre you wouldn’t really like it.
