“Lucinda’s Spell” tries desperately to look like a professionally polished film. Even though it’s shot on 35mm film and in cinemascope, it just can’t quite cut it. As soon as the actors begin to open their mouths, it fully reveals itself to be chintzy and amateurish.
Jason, the ‘first horn’ (portrayed by Jon Jacobs, director of the film) is a Scottish-accented wizard, a descendent of Merlin. He comes to New Orleans looking for the w***e he impregnated several years earlier, and consequently, his young son. It turns out that Lucinda (Christina Fulton) is the one he seeks, not only is she a prostitute, but a ‘ sex witch’. Lucinda, who put her child up for adoption, now tries to obtain custody; meanwhile she is being persecuted by the local witches’ coven.
To discuss the plot any further would be futile. It’s too ridiculous to put into words, other than to say “Lucinda’s Spell” is a worthless disaster lacking any form of identity. The spoken dialog is pure drivel, as the actors try to deliver long wordy speeches, which they just can’t handle. Its running time is unwarranted and painful. The film suffers from trying to be too many things — erotic, comedic, suspenseful, and romantic. The end result is slopped together, moronic, and rather pointless.
