The Witches of Eastwick Quick Review

Directed by George Miller

Starring Jack Nicholson, Cher, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle Pfeiffer

“Just your average, horny little devil” is the best way to describe the wealthy and irresistible Daryl Van Horne from The Witches of Eastwick. Three modern-day “witches” yearn for Mr. Right in a small New England town, wishing for his arrival on a stormy night. Is the arrival of Daryl Van Horne a coincidence or the women’s unconscious sorcery at work?

The Witches of Eastwick is a comedic horror film, bringing forth hilarious gags and supernatural suspense. These modern-day “witches” are tired of being lonely, being ostracized, and being unaccepted by everyone in the small town. Banning together, they dream up the perfect man together one stormy evening and he arrives in Eastwick, but for a price.

Who better to play the devil? Jack Nicholson is every bit of the man who the “witches” describ that faithful night, but his love comes with a price and his devotion turns deadly when townsfolk are affected by their relationship with Daryl Van Horne.

The Witches of Eastwick is a hilarious romp in magic and mayhem. One word: cherries.

  1. I loved this film! I loved the reboot television series that was on ABC, but now is cancelled. Even the actor, Paul Gross, who played Daryl Van Horne I thought did an amazing job. I mean there is no replacing Jack Nicholson, but Gross sure did a fine job of trying to.

  2. I only saw the first episode of the television series reboot, but it definitely made me smile and I wanted to watch the film all over again. Definitely no replacing Jack Nicholson, but again I did not watch the television reboot very extensively to compare the actor Paul Gross’ performance.
