A nightmare-plagued journalist is sent by her magazine to investigate the mysterious goings-on in a small town where she soon finds herself under the spell of a malevolent modern-day sorcerer. (Of course, this happens to my colleagues all the time.) Here the writer is played by Suzanne Somers and the shifty shaman by John Vargas.

The movie starts spookily but grows increasingly silly as it wafts along. At least the plot should give Somers a week's worth of topics for the syndicated talk show she starts next month. How about When Past-Life Lovers Pay a Visit or Women Who Love Evil Wizards Too Much?
