College student Nan Barlow (Venetia Stevenson) goes to a Massachusetts town to conduct research on witchcraft. She sure did come to the right place because the inn where she is staying is presided over by a witch that was burned at the stake in the late 17th century and had made a deal with the devil to return as an undead. The townsfolk are her coven, and it's time for the annual human sacrifice. Guess who has been chosen as the victim? A good film of this genre, with a spooky environment. 1 User Review

This film chronicles the marriage of famous poet T.S. Eliot (Willem Dafoe) and Vivienne (Miranda Richardson). It was not until after their marriage that Eliot found out that his wife had a "condition," a misdiagnosed hormonal disorder that caused mood swings. The diagnosis of "emotional problems" resulted in making the condition worse with her prescribed medications (including liquor). The troubled marriage, which included her being placed in a mental institution, had a great influence on T.S. Eliot's work and life. Miranda Richardson was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar and Rosemary Harris was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
