Plot Summary:
"On her 18th birthday, Rebecca meets a mysterious man with magical powers. Roman, the warlock, shows her how her parents were murdered and bestows upon her the Sacred Amulet that is her birth rite. As she delves into the black arts of witchcraft, her adopted sister, Erin, fights to save her soul from the evil that has possessed her. It all ends in a showdown of good and evil as Erin and Roman battle for Rebecca."

On her 18th Birthday, Rebecca sees a young man watching her through her classroom window a la Michael Myers, however, rather than wearing a mask, the attractive Roman uses his appearance to hide his murderous side.

Basically, Rebecca finds out that she is a witch and Roman wants to take her over to the dark side.

This film had one of the weakest opening scenes ever, but finds it's feet after the title sequence and ends up being quite good.

Director Devin Hamilton appears to be a very ambitious man, as the film may have a low budget, but that does not prevent it from being quite competently written, acted, directed, edited and packaged.

The cast including rising star Laura Nativo and the fabulous Brinke Stevens are all very good, but it is Julie Strain and her sister Lizzy that have the most hilarious scene in the film and they play it for laughs to great results.

The cast and crews efforts really transpire onto the screen and whilst this is an independent film it really manages to live up to it's ambitions.

OVERALL SUMMARY
If you do decide to watch this, you must judge it on it's own merits. If you expect this to be better than 'The Craft' you will ultimately be disappointed.
