Having grown up with their spinster Aunts Frances and Jet in the long time Owens family home on an island off the coast of Massachusetts following the death of their father and then their mother, they are the latest in a long line of witches. Rumors of the Owens women being witches have existed for generations in the small close minded town in which they live, despite there being no hard evidence. The Owens women are also under a curse that any man with who they fall in love is doomed. With this experience, extroverted Gilly decides to leave the island to live life to the fullest, in the process falling for Jimmy Angelov, an ethnic Bulgarian who grew up near Transylvannia. More introspective Sally, who has sworn off the use of magic except in its most practical sense, has taken measures not to fall in love because of the curse, but ends up falling for and marrying Michael, a local merchant, the two who end up having two daughters of their own. The curse works its way into both Gilly and Sally’s lives in different ways. The outcomes of the curse on their collective lives become more complicated with the arrival into town of Tuscon police detective Gary Hallet, whose arrival is not by accident and involves more than just his stated professional purpose.
Plot: Sally and Gillian Owens, born into a magical family, have mostly avoided witchcraft themselves. But when Gillian’s vicious boyfriend, Jimmy Angelov, dies unexpectedly, the Owens sisters give themselves a crash course in hard magic. With policeman Gary Hallet growing suspicious, the girls struggle to resurrect Angelov — and unwittingly inject his corpse with an evil spirit that threatens to end their family line.

A fun movie, despite a few weak points
It appears that director Griffith Dunne tried to keep this film from being as powerful as it could have been. The movie fails to fully develop the town’s overt fear of witches (missing only slightly), the full foreboding of “something wicked this way comes” with Jimmy (although the script lets them get away with it), and the magical love bond between Sally and Gary. A few small changes, such as more supportive background music, would have made these points support and counterpoint the lighter parts of the flick.
Bullock and Kidman are very good as the central characters, very believable as different-but-bonded sisters. Kidman is a little too flaky at times to be a fully credible witch, but this characterization runs well enough in context. Channing (whom I rarely enjoy) and Wiest are excellent in major supporting roles, outdone only by Webb and Wood (Sally’s daughters) who show their abilities by *not* overacting their potentially cutesy roles. Instead, they do a great job in stating variations on their mother and Aunt Gilly.
Overall, I think most aspects of direction and production could have used one more iteration of quality improvement. Still, the movie is quite enjoyable, and worth watching again some time.
Hard to describe
Possible spoilers throughout
I’m not sure if I liked this movie or not. The premise was good. The acting was good. The special effects were excellent. Because I know several pagans, I can say that the magick aspect of it was fairly accurate (more accurate than most of the “witch movies” out there now, and, as a ghost hunter, the banishing was really well done.)
Having said all that, I still can’t pinpoint what I really didn’t like about it. It’s like the movie couldn’t make up it’s mind if it wanted to be a comedy or a drama; a modern fairy tale or a true to life tale.
The end came too quick and the answer to the problem seemed too pat and too easy. I didn’t buy it. The townspeople changed their minds too easily. You don’t get over 300 years of prejudice overnight.
It was enjoyable, but not my favorite movie.
