We've learned from BloodyDisgusting that Black House Films has just announced Ray Eddy and Matt Gunnoe’s new film Island of Witches; which is apparently a bit of 'Coven' combined with 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'.
According to Bloody Disgusting, the film is said to be about an ancient coven of witches whose powers are quelled by a pure dominant force, which is set:
In the present day, a skeptical archaeologist (Marcus Rush) has been on a quest to find evidence of the supernatural, and has finally found hard evidence giving him the location of an island where he will find the centuries-old, dead-and-buried coven of witches. Devious individuals who want the Coven for themselves try to stop him, so Marcus cons a group of hard-core mercenaries into joining him for protection. Not long after arriving, Marcus and his team are assaulted by a group of soldiers intent on getting to the Coven first. The action builds through firefights all over the island, followed by an even more disturbing revelation
(Conan the Barbarian) and James Winburn (Halloween) star in the new film which looks intriguing to say the least. Personally I love the sound of Island of Witches and like the fact that the trailer isn't too revealing where it only hints at the mysticism which is in store. But what can I say? I'm a sucker for witch flicks. What are your thoughts?
