Fun little slice of satanic panic. Nothing special but scratches the right itch.

Very good film. Plucky Nan goes to investigate legends of witch burnings in the creepiest, most fog bound town imaginable. Nothing good happens as a result. Obviously cheap and studio bound (hence all the fog) but very atmospheric. The degenerate, decayed town and the cult aspect make this feel Lovecraftian, even though it isn't mythos related - a lot more so than the more recent, action orientated Dagon. Some real "What the Hell?" moments as the plot lurches unexpectedly (but brilliantly) away from where you think it is going. The ending is fun but bit disappointing, out of kilter with the rest of the film - it feels like it was put on as a studio pleaser.
