In this little-seen early film from George Romero, Jan White plays an affluent housewife able to keep her creeping disaffection at bay through therapy, friends, and a devotion to her family. When her friends catch wind that a local woman Virginia Greenwald practices witchcraft, their curiosity is piqued and they pay her a visit. For White, however, the visit has profound implications. Exploring the practice herself she finds an escape from her stifling existence -- but at a cost.
