Witches' Brew (movie)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A 1979 movie directed by Richard Shorr and Herbert L. Strock. Originally known as Weird Woman, it is a remake of Burn Witch Burn and stars Richard Benjamin, Terry Garr and Lana Turner. With many similarities to the television series Bewitched, this is the story of a young housewife who also happens to be a witch. Margaret (Garr) is married to a young psychology professor (Benjamin) and, with her magic spells, she advances him in his career. All goes well until a negative witch named Vivian (Turner), who is approaching the end of her life, decides to transmigrate her soul into Margaret's body. Her negativity affects both Margaret herself and her husband and his career.

The movie was originally made in 1978-79 but was not distributed until 1985,

and then it made its debut as a movie for cable television.
