The Witches of Eastwick (1987)

May 11th, 2020

Join us for a fascinating deep-dive into George Miller's 1987 genre-bending film The Witches of Eastwick, starring Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Susan Sarandon as the eponymous witches, and Jack Nicholson as "just your average horny little devil". It was a challenge to cherry pick our way through the myriad themes, behind the scenes drama and original source material, but with a little hocus pocus, we think we've managed to do it justice!
