Joe (Matthew J. Lawrence), a young "investigative" journalist still living with his parents (Brian Woodward, Jayne Buchanan) one day receives a visit from Evie (Samantha Moorhouse), high priestess of a witches coven, after he tried to expose covens in general as little more than sex cults. Evie though is not angry, but she invites Joe to the island of her coven to experience a ritual first hand. Having nothing better to do, Joe agrees to just that. On the island, he meets the other members of the coven, Zander (Craig R. Mellor), Evie's husband and high priest of the coven, who has also a short temper and a sadistic trait, their healer Kissi (Tracy Gabbitas), and other coven members Talia (Laura Ellen Wilson), Raymond (Micky Satiar) and wes (Jacob Kain Prescott) - and he also meets another woman living in the house the others just ignore, Alice (Laura Peterson). The ritual is essentially a wild dance party which culminates in Joe having sex with Talia, in front of everyone else - and only the next day he learns he was drugged, and so was Talia. Upon learning that, Joe insists on leaving immediately, when he sees Zander mistreating Alice. This strikes a chord inside him, and he decides on staying and trying to find out what's the story of Alice and protect her in the process - even if he has no clear plan how as he's not exactly a match for Zander. However, he and Alice manage to meet in secret, and he finds out she's Evie's sister who hasn't been accepted into the coven, and is thus seemingly ignored by the other coven members - but at the same time they seem to closely guard her, especially Zander who physically punishes her for every wrongdoing. Of course, Joe and Alice fall in love before too long - but what neither of them know is that that's all part of Evie's plan, as at the solar eclipse that's only days away they want to sacrifice both Alice and the unborn child Joe has only just fathered in a blood ritual to open the gate to hell ...


Now if you're looking for pure spectacle and/or sexy witches baring it all, this film is probably not for you, as it's a rather slowburn piece of Wiccan horror that puts an emphasis on mystery, characters and atmosphere - and as that it works very well as it really gives the viewer only as much information as one absolutely needs and lets one piece the puzzle together oneself while giving the characters the necessary air to breathe. And even if the reveal in the third act might not come totally unexpected, the film had an interesting story to tell so far and doesn't solely depend on its finale but manages to be a cool watch throughout.
