This movie has all of the elements that you expect from a horror film--andImean that in the best way! All right, it's admittedly low budget, but thefrequent deaths, presented with almost metronomic spacing, are inventiveandentertaining. Plus, it is a delight to see a film that really does have asupe...
I like this movie despite it's flaws. This movie is not technically a greatmovie. The plot is pretty straight, some of the acting is spotty, andthere's very little in the way of surprises. The biggest surprise for me wasthe fact that I liked this movie. This movie is a traditional horror flick,compl...
After watching the opening 10 minutes of this film I was happy to seethe director wasn't afraid to "show it all" in the area of gore.Stylistically, I would really be surprised if the director and/orcinematographer wasn't influenced by Dario Argento. Some of the musicreminded me of a slight take on w...

This had a very promising and shocking starting but for the rest, apartfromsome gory scenes this was the typical cheap and tired B-movie with anenchanted house. It was a very cultivated genre at that age(not now) andperhaps at that time it was acceptable, but not for today´s standards. Idon´t agre...
***SPOILERS** Nowhere as effective as it was back in 1982 when it wasfirst released, in being banned in countries like the UK, "Supersition'still gives off a number of jolts to its audience in that almosteveryone in the film ends up suffering a gruesome death by the timeit's over.The standard horror...
This is pretty standard haunted house fare. I've seen worse, I've seenbetter. What makes it stand slightly higher than normal hauntings are afew good gore scenes, including a guy being ripped in half by a window,so that half of him lays out in the yard and the other half twitches ina room. And, a se...
I had never heard of this film until I stumbled across a few minutes ofit one late night on TCM. And of course leave it to Netflix to find mea copy. The viewing experience of the entire film was somewhat of adisappointment, however. There were some interesting pieces here, butnot enough of them to p...
This was one of the best Little-Known Horror films of the 1980's. Ithink that it did'nt get a wide release because it was "Prohibited toMinors". It had very little sex in it but it went over the top inviolence and gore. Several of the death scenes were very good for thetimes.The evisceration scene,t...
An unusual, but rather enjoyable no-nonsense and wicked low-budgetsupernatural cursed haunted house feature that sees a Reverend and hisfamily move into a strange, remote house with a horrific past.Mysterious occurrences begin to happen and people within the propertystart dieing or disappearing to o...

Vajna, who gave us haunted house horrors The Evil and TheChangeling, Superstition is yet another supernatural offering set inand around a creepy old property. This time around, the spookyshenanigans are accompanied by a w...
Let me explain why I equated "Superstition" with "pure horror". Simplyput, that's what the film is to me: pure, undiluted and nasty horror."Superstition" is a haunted house/ evil witch /slasher package. Asalways, I'm a fan of great and under-appreciated films and I think thatthis film fits the categ...
This is one of my favorite haunted houses movies, it has gore, a creaturethat kills people, innocent victims, two sexy chicks, a nosy kid, and lotsand lots of screams.This movie also features what I think is one of the best killing scenes ofany horror movie: the girl who is spiked to the floor, that...
This is a great film! I was expecting it to be typical boring haunted housetale, but it is much better than thought i would be. I don't know whetheritwas because I was tired but every 5 or 10 minutes something would make mejump. Things happen that you definitely do NOT expect. I also respected thefa...
Just a warning to maybe save someone else from wasting their time.Seeing that this was on TCM and after having read a number of thereviews on IMDb I decided to give it a watch.I was intrigued by howmany people referenced Argento- some even citing Suspiria. Sorry to saythis one is strictly for fans o...

Just as a big budget does not guarantee a film will be worthwhile,neither does a small budget mean it will be rubbish. This has a smallbudget, and it is rubbish. We've seen this sort of thing before the1980s and not infrequently since. Here we have a fairly enigmatic ifnot mysterious piece of real e...
Supestition aka The Witch is simply awesome!Simple, with one location and small cast, the word of the day isHorror, and rightly so.From the get-go, this little classic has some amazing kills, gory andcrass, with enough haunting moments to garner a few chills along theway.Its 1982 for crying out loud...
Though distinct subgenres, it didn't take long for the supernaturalhorror film and the slasher film to breed. The offspring, thesupernatural slasher, would later become widely popular in the lateeighties, with the "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Hellrasier"franchises. Yet earlier examples exist, such...

When are people going to learn to avoid cursed properties? The home maybe the one of their dreams, but the cost is too high. Thanks to Satanicworship, murder and other horrific things, the land is unclean. Therehave been many books and films telling this kind of story. Some like'Poltergeist' are cla...

"Superstition" is a solid little shocker from a decade that certainlydidn't lack for quality horror. Fans of the genre are sure to find itenjoyable, as it possesses an extremely potent atmosphere and very highbody count. It was an early credit for producers Mario Kassar andAndrew Vajna, head honchos...
