review by
Mike Haberfelner

An all-female witches coven and a group of Ghristian priests are battling over possession of the all-powerful Dagger of Destziny, exemplified in a number of stories:

  • Mallick's Dreamlady: Mallick (Jimmy Drain) is not really good at picking up women, so when his dream lady (Leah Saxon) shows up at the bar he's a regular at the bar he's a regular at, he trusts a mysterious bartender (Mike Apple) to make him win her over using some magic ...
  • Hiike: He's (Jimmy Drain) almost ready to propose to her (Morgan Weaver), but then she leaves him, tired of waiting ...
  • Abashed: They (Cassie Kelso, Mark Mook) are breaking up, and not exactly on the best of terms - which is nothing really a bit of black magic can't make worse ...
  • The Initiation of Professor Kimmer: Newby professor Kimmer gradually falls for his student Starr (Luba Bocian), despite being happily worried to Jamie (Emily Absher). And Starr's more than happy to trigger his urges - with more than sinister motives ...
  • Cadaver: Young Peggy (Jodi Lynn Thomas, voiced by Ashe Medina) would do anything to be trained by master dancer Beedham (Caustic Scifidelic)- but then things go so horribly wrong that witchcraft appears to be the only way out - but even witchcraft comes at a price ...
  • Meet Michael: As are many kids, Gaylen's (Mara Davala) afraid of the boogieman, enough so to make her parents worried - to an extent that they hire an exorcist ...
  • Fate Upside Down: The fight for the Dagger of Destiny goes into its final round, and it seems the witches are to triumph over the priests - but at what price ...

A very nice anthology that like many movies of its ilk explores many approaches to the horror genre from the dead serious to the hokey to the intentionally campy, and makes it a point to also go experimental with a few of the segments, all amounting to a rather enjoyable stew that has at least something in store for everybody, with all segments being of pretty high quality. In all, a fun horror ride for sure!
