First I must establish this was made in 1972 which should account for a lot of the screw-ups in the movie. Secondly, Tom Selleck was obviously priming for his Magnum P.I. series as he flashed around the island in his snappy red convertible.
There are two things you can say about this movie It is funny as Hell. It wasnt supposed to be.
Satans Gals Selleck plays the part of a writer that investigates old art and writes a blurb about it. He runs across a dandy little print that shows three witches being burnt at the stake [circa 1542] and oddly enough the center witch bears a remarkable likeness to his eerie and pouty wife, Chris [Barra Grant].
In shades of Dorian Gray, once the portrait finds itself on Sellecks wall the subjects start fading from the picture, and appearing in his life. The nasty rottweiler, Nicodemus who has a spike collar with his address at 666 some street or another, witch 2 shows up as his housekeeper Juana Rios [Paraluman], witch 3 shows up in his shrinks office. In other words, Jims life has suddenly taken a turn for the worse.
So what do you do when you have dissolving pictures? Go see your shrink of course. Apparently this is a different kind of shrink because he eventually shows up at Jims house to look at the picture and stays to stare at it after Jim went to bed. After seeing some unrealistic maneuvers in the artwork, he scuttles on his way home.
Does he make it or does he meet his fate?
Eventually we see boobs Yes indeed, once Chris gets under the spell of the other two witches we have boobs galore as she is held captive, suspended over iron spikes, and thrashed with a cat-o-ninetails by Juana who is sporting a snappy body suit with stunning leggings. We also get a smarmy shot of Juanas pert breasts when she invites Jim back to her manse and ends up sprawled across her bed. With just the proper movement, oh dear, her dressing gown opens and out jumps one plump breast and perky nipple.
Does Jim fall for this ploy or does he return to the side of his loving wife?
Alas, all tales have an end Of course I wont even give a hint of what the ending is here. Lets just say there is a lot more drama and suspense in this review than in the entire movie.
Directed by Hollingsworth Morse and written by John A. Bushelman and John C. Higgins it really isnt a good movie. Dragging throughout, poorly scripted, and that weeping Chris make it a long 90 minutes. Filmed in the Philippines, there are some very nice scenery shots but not enough to make up for the main movie.
Tom Selleck played Tom Selleck. The same part he has played from Magnum P.I. to Friends. He doesnt really define a character, he just seems to play himself. That whining Barra Grant worked my last nerve but she did have some decent ta-tas and not fake ones I might add.
Guess that is all I can say except the ending bizarre, very bizarre.
