Title: The Witches of Eastwick
Length: 1h 58m
Released: 1987
Genre:  Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
Rating: R
Where I Got It: Amazon Prime

Three single women in a picturesque village have their wishes granted, at a cost, when a mysterious and flamboyant man arrives in their lives.

Sooo my friend came over to spend the night and we were hanging out trying to figure out what to watch. Hubby comes in and suggests this one. I guess it's one of Hubby's faves? LOL why not. 

These three best friends live in a perfect village but they don't fit in. They try but their lives are hectic. After a night of drinking and making a wish for the "perfect" man....they soon realize their wish may have come true. A very mysterious man comes into town and shakes everything up. 

I honestly had zero idea what to expect. This was a wild, WILD movie. Fun! But strange and different. Yayy. I like different and strange. 

The cast is fabulous!!! I'm stunned they could afford and get all these goodies here. They were so fun to watch!

I don't fully understand the ending and is our dude the Devil or not? Or is he just a wizard? I'm not 100% sure. Maybe I need to re-watch or read on Reddit lol. It was a fun ending and it made me chuckle, but I do have questions. BUT this movie doesn't take it's self too serious so it is what it is. Just a fun fantasy, comedy, horror blend. 

Oof. Be warned though...this is def an 80s movie. Just be warned ;) 

All-in-all, this was a fun and different movie. I enjoyed it! It had humor and some witch-y stuff. If you're looking to watch a weird 80s movie this is the one for you. I'll give it 4 stars. It would be 3, but this was unique and wild and it didn't take it's self too serious which I can appreciate.

I liked it pretty well. Back in the 80s. So it's been like 40 years since I saw it. lol

Like Anne, I watched this when if first came out, so it's been ages. I remember he was the devil, but I could be wrong!

Anne, never even heard of it until recently. lol. My parents probably didn't think it was appropriate for me.

Jen, yeah he was like a Devil/Wizard. It was a hair confusing.
