In reality, Governor Phips was only 41 at the time of the Salem Witch Trials. The film depicts him as obviously much older. See more »

Quotes

Thomas Putnam: You're frightening the children.
Ann Putnam: They should be frightened! An innocent woman died today, because of me! And you! A man died today because he opposed you. Opposing you is not a crime before God!
Thomas Putnam: Stop it! Stop it!
Ann Putnam: I will stop it! Even if it means I hang for it... I will stop this.

Awful!
25 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

"A masterful work..."? Who wrote that? Kirstie Alley in a masterful work about the Salem witch trials. Got to be worth a watch. I bailed after an hour and 25 minutes of my life that I bitterly regret wasting on this. If I hadn't had a pizza delivered and had my hands full, I might have had the will to turn it off.

I've tried to bear in mind that it's 32 years old but that's really no excuse.

The acting is truly awful. Accents that put Dick Van Dyke as the chimney sweep in Mary Poppins in a good light. Terrible cinematography, sets like a 1950s B movie. Plot devices and direction on the same level as a local am dram production.

Sorry, but I can't find a single redeeming thing to say about this. The one star I've given was for Kirstie Alley's acting which was pretty good.
