Don’t you know it’s magic?
It took this long for this franchise to start making jokes about cops and donuts. A stereotyped fortune teller is even thrown in for good measure. Thirteen minutes in, we get our first of many boob shots. We get to the pornographic stuff very early on. Eroticism has officially submerged any attempt at horror. Some of the sex scenes are consensual, some not. We’re starting to get used to this...
With its serious police procedural, this is one of the most mature installments. But it’s not very “666”. Shouldn’t a franchise about warlocks, wizards, and witches celebrate its 6th movie? They sure milked it on the poster and cover art. What’s more, it seems this script is trying to postpone the expensive stuff we signed up for. How about a magic spell every now and then?
This kind of movie had potential before the internet, but, these days, a little nudity intertwined with interminable dialogue won’t cut it. Witchcraft 6 has pacing issues. Prepare for the longest bath scene in the history of bath scenes. Expect so much filler you’ll forget what you’re watching. The third act has some of the worst special effects of this miserable franchise.
