What can one say about a film that is so vulgar and blasphemous in some parts, that it is offensive, but so comical in other parts that it cannot be taken seriously?
Three single women (with a brood of children between them), potter Alexandra Medford (Cher), journalist Sukie Ridgemont (Michelle Pfeiffer) and music teacher Jane Spofford (Susan Sarandon), bored with their lives in small-town, provincial America, fantasise about the ideal man arriving in town and sweeping them off their feet. Instead of tall, dark and handsome, they get Daryl van Horne (Jack Nicholson), short, rather plump and very eccentric, and his creepy man-servant Fidel (Carel Struyken). Daryl very quickly seduces the susceptible ladies, and turns their lives upside-down - to the horror of the conservative townsfolk, their most outspoken critic being the local newspaper editor's wife, Felicia (Veronica Cartwright). Unbeknown to Daryl's three acolytes, they have acquired and unleashed supernatural powers, with poor Felicia as the target. When the enormity of what they have done begins to sink in, they decide to get rid of Daryl.
The characters in this film are all spoofs of the most famous characters in horror history, and many of the more modern films have drawn on novelist John Updike's scenario for their own stories. If you like horror/sci-fi, this is a lot of fun - if not, stay away.
