Goofs

In reality, Governor Phips was only 41 at the time of the Salem Witch Trials. The film depicts him as obviously much older. See more »

Good Movie - Drawn Out To Long
12 September 2017 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

This is a made for TV movie... apparently in two parts when aired judging by the length of it. This could have been easily cut down to a one part film - or one that aired in one night instead of in two parts. There are unnecessary and drawn out scenes to create more drama I guess.

I have my own beliefs of the real Salem Witch Trials WITCH I will not discuss here (pun intended) but I can say this is a good film, even though it is overly and unnecessarily long. I did enjoy this movie because I love stories (real and fake) about witches.

If you want a solid film on what happened at Salem then I do recommend giving this one a watch.

8/10
