179: SFFCH – The Witches of Eastwick [1987]

178 Witches of Eastwick

Now we all like George Miller’s style here at Spoiler Filled (especially one of us *cough* Jamie *cough*), but how will he handle his first time directing something which isn’t Mel Gibson in a post apocalyptic wasteland? So, we’re taking a look at his first Hollywood outing with The Witches of Eastwick from 1987. Our expectations are all over the shop for this ‘feminist parable’ given Miller’s eclectic back catalogue, but we certainly all have something to say about this ahead-of-the-time movie. Expect some sexual cello playing, booby dolls, Rich playing Devil’s advocate (quite literally) and to never look at cherries the same way again.
