Sorceress is not a remake of the 1982 erotic thriller of the same name. This 1987 film is set in medieval France, where, in certain quarters, witchcraft is accepted as a fact of life and an everyday occurrence. A travelling priest visits town after town, hoping to root out those still practicing pagan rituals in defiance of church edicts. Visually, the film is a stunner; in terms of content, there's more atmosphere than story, which is not an altogether bad thing. Try to see the subtitled version of Sorceress; the English-dubbed version is about as credible as a Godzilla movie.
