Virgin Witch Movie Review

Virgin Witch is a 1971 horror movie directed by Ray Austin and starring Ann Michelle,Vicki Michelle and Patricia Haines.

The movie begins with two girls called Christine(Ann Michelle) and Betty(Vicki Michelle). They see an advertisement for a modelling job. They go to an agent called Sybil Waite(Haines) and she has a look at both girls and tells them that there is a job available for Christine. She has to go to a big house in the countryside with Sybil. She wants to take Betty with her. Betty's boyfriend, Johnny isn't too happy about this. Sybil and the girls drive down to the country house. Sybil points out a witches ring in the village. They all meet the photographer, Peter. There is also an old, creepy housekeeper. Sybil's friend, Gerald(Neil Hallett), owns the house. He is an expert on witches and witchcraft.

Sybil tells Christina about witches also. Christina is fascinated by the subject. Betty looks around the house and grounds. She sees weird things and she becomes frightened. She tells Gerald all about it.
Peter and Christina have sex. Sybil isn't too happy about it as she likes Christina herself. Gerald has his eye on Betty. He tells her that he is a white witch and that he practises white witchcraft. Christina wants to be a witch. She wants to join in their rituals. Meanwhile, Johnny is looking for Betty. The coven meet and Christina is accepted into it. Gerald has sex with her. Peter is worried about Sybil putting a spell on him. 

Christina and Sybil kiss. Gerald wants Christina to initiate Betty into the coven. Johnny arrives in the village. He is looking for Sybil. Christina asks Betty to take part in the coven. Johnny finds Betty and tries to get her to leave. She won't do it. Christine performs a spell on Sybil and burns her picture. Sybil feels pain. Christina wants to be priestess instead of Sybil. Johnny faces off with Christina and he tells her that he is  taking Betty back home. Christina threatens him. She becomes high priestess as Sybil is too ill. Christina forces Betty to go to the ritual. She is initiated. Johnny shows up and he takes Betty away.

Christina tackles Sybil with a dagger and she uses her powers to kill her. Everyone in the coven realises what she has done. They all follow her as their new leader. Betty and Johnny don't want any part of it, so they leave.  This film was pretty good. It has a real 70's feel to it and there is lots of 70's music to add to that. There is plenty of skin on show here too if that is your thing. The story is not too bad and the cast did a good job. There really wasn't a lot to this film but overall, this is entertaining 1970's fare. The film has been disowned for some reason by the two main stars, Vicki and Ann Michelle, but don't let that put you off. I will give this one a 5/10.

This one is an oldie! I think I've seen it, but not sure. As always, a good and interesting review.
