Vampiress Review: "Witchcraft X: Mistress of the Craft"


The Gist:  The leader of a brood of female vampires and a Satanist come together with the goal of casting a demonic spell and it's up to Celeste, a beautiful sorceress to stop them.

Clarification:  As corny as the gist sounds its about 5 times cornier than that (a lot of running and martial arts in high heels in this film).  Sadly out of the two films in the Witchcraft series that deal with vampires (the other being "Witchcraft VII: Judgement Hour")this is the better of the two by a mile (the other consists of two fang scenes with obviously rubber dollar store fangs).  The bulk of this movie is people either running or walking around the same hallways and alleys depending on if they're being chased by a vampire or not in that particular scene.  This film could be classified as a softcore porn as there is quite a bit of full frontal nudity but as far as simulated sex goes with a couple of exceptions it's all lumped into one montage mid film (basically every couple in the film decides to have sex at the same exact moment in different locations it would seem).  The acting pretty much sounds like they're reading but there really isn't much substance to the story anyway.  Basically this film is to be watched for the T&A factor only.

Selling Point:  Emily Booth as a vampire is well worth the terrible movie it happens to occur in.

Female Vampire Factor:  The lead vampire "Raven" is played by Eileen Daly who rarely fangs out and is nowhere near what she was in Razor Blade Smile.
The real vamp screen time goes to the duo of Emily Booth and Talitha Tallett who do all the dirty work in the movie and have a great deal of fun doing it.  Most scenes with them usually involve them making out while attacking people in tandem.

Outside of that the movie deals a lot with the three above creating a number of background vampires who become stake fodder
 as well as Booth and Talletts characters getting replaced by some nameless vampire henchwomen upon their demise.

 As mentioned before the movie is pretty bad and only worth taking a look at for the T&A factor.  On top of that they spend the whole movie hinting that Stephanie Beaton's character aka the only thing that relates this film to the previous Witchcraft titles, might turn (she gets scratched and bitten multiple times) but she never does.  Thankfully she has posed as a vampire since this film which you can view HERE.   For that I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.  You'll get your fill of hot women with fangs, just don't expect anything beyond that.
