Plot
This is a slight improvement over the last few sequels. Why waste your time with wizards when you can spend it with vampires instead, after all. Lesbian vampires, no less. You’ll see plenty of them, until you can’t stand them anymore. They have no gravitas. They’re overexposed. By the second act, they lose whatever mystery they had when they were first introduced.
Characters are constantly beating each other up, courtesy of the worst imaginable fight choreography. I was ashamed and I wasn’t even part of the problem. The sound effects used during action scenes are horrendous. They were obviously taken from a very limited sound bank, with no variation, audio pitch, or any particular concern in post-production whatsoever.
In this early digital era, the creators of this franchise are running out of excuses for delivering shlock. The thing is, inexperienced filmmakers who don’t know their hardware aren’t worth much at the turn of the century. Witchcraft X looks cheap and unprofessional. It sometimes looks like a home video. Anyway, kudos to the creators for trying harder than ever.
