The best way to describe The Witches of Eastwick is as a fun classic that you can always come back to. The movie is about three recently single women who are not aware of their powers, and one day, a mysterious man enters their lives. He courts all three of them, and in doing so, their lives change in ways they have never seen before.
Jack Nicholson stars as the mysterious man, and he plays the role with his usual frentic enthusiasm. We are given clues to his true identity, and as the women learn of their gifts, it comes with a price. When the women learn of the price they have to pay, and realize it is too much, they start to reject the man and anything to do with him. He doesn’t do well with the rejection and strikes back at them. That ends up being his own doing when the women realize they are more powerful together on their own.
There are many messages within the movie of female empowerment, and how men react to that. The movie even speaks on how men have to feel like they are in control of everything, and how they react when they lose control. I will say this much, after viewing this film, you will never think of cherries in the same way again.
Definitely worth checking into, it is currently streaming on HBOMAX for your viewing pleasure. It will both delight and disgust you, and something horror fans should enjoy.
Till next time, stay scared!
