Around the time this was shot, Debbie Rochon, Tanya Dempsey, and Tina Krause were second tier scream queens. They were extremely prolific in the Z and B movie market. Full Moon had downsized its scope since Witchouse 1. Part 2 was a mess. It was overthought and too complicated. With Witchouse 3, we’re back to a simpler screenplay and rudimentary storytelling.
The three protagonists look like they’ve been friends their whole lives, which overcomes most flaws of the dialogue. The budget isn’t there, but we’re in good company. This is a compressed version of The Craft, with a limited cast and a single location. It’s extremely economic, straight to the point, not by any stretch of the imagination a great film, but it’s cute.
Horror, boobs; what is there not to like? Well, the lighting sucks. Photographically, the focus is never where it should be. It’s too dark. The editing isn’t all that. Brinke Stevens plays the series’ villain Lilith, but without gravitas, which she never had. If you thought Witchouse 1 was simple-minded, here it is, watered-down, sexier, and in its most basic form.
