Totally empty except for the performances by the actors including a young Helen Hunt.

Just because you are bored of watching does not mean other people will be.

What a piece of boring garbage, even for TV.

Worth watching if you like the older films and occult/witches types of films.

Yes, yes, it's a 'Carrie' rip-off, but still enjoyable!

" There are a handful of scare scenes here that are dated by contemporary standards, though one is so bizarre and unexpected it's almost disturbing.

Quite entertaining really.

It's a slow moving pace that never really catches the viewer.

Overall, "The Spell" is an amusing film that I personally found utterly absorbing, largely because its core melodrama was so perplexing.

This movie is sooo boring.

..I highly recommend this to anyone that likes truly scary and suspenseful films of the 70's .. I don't know where to get a copy for myself so if anyone know please e-mail me at.. michman5614@aol.

I'm not saying all of the Lifetimes are bad, some are OK, but the ones that are boring are very pedestrian like this turkey trot.

I hated everyone in this boring movie.
