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.
