Makeup effects specialist David P. Barton's directorial debut is this fairly atmospheric straight-to-video horror film about three jokers who accidentally kill the son of a witch named Abigail (cult favorite Debbie Rochon). As might be expected, the witch unleashes her vengeance on them, first seducing the trio and then using their own devilish offspring to destroy them. There are some memorable images of rotting, scythe-wielding zombies shuffling through the misty woods which is reminiscent of The Fog (1979), the expected gory violence, and appearances from genre regulars Trent Haaga, Jeff Dylan Graham, and Tom Hoover (Polymorph) to keep things lively. This was the final collaboration between J.R. Bookwalter's low-budget horror factory at Tempe Entertainment and Charles Band's slightly more upscale Full Moon Pictures.
