Plot
Witchcraft 16 marks the end of a trilogy within the Witchcraft franchise, that features characters who have been around for a long time and recast countless times. The last two films are some of the worst Witchcraft sequels, but this one stands on its own for a couple of reasons. It basically treats the two previous installments like films within a film, Scream-style.
Watching bad actors pretend to play bad actors was a guilty pleasure. Screenwriter Sean Abley is aware of how terrible these films are, but then makes an even shittier movie. The editing is horrendous; the audio hums and there are way too many crossfades. Whoever cut this film butchered it. I think this is the first time the Witchcraft franchise thinks outside the box, but it doesn’t make it good.
Witchcraft 16’s creative prowess doesn’t accomplish much, when all is said and told, since we end up with the same old crap: weak dialogue, embarrassing effects, and interminable exposition. Kudos for integrating, yet again, soft-core porn scenes in a busy plotline. Despite its severe flaws, this is one of the few times, in this series, where I felt commitment and passion from the cast and crew.
