by Bryant Frazer If there's any doubt what kind of movie he's made, director Jim Wynorski dispels it in the opening moments of Sorceress, as B-movie bombshell Julie Strain appears frontally nude, lighting a candle and muttering a witchy incantation. Although she's dead by the end of the first reel, her influence lingers as she taunts ex-husband Larry (Larry Poindexter) from beyond the grave in flashbacks and sexy visions that culminate in Strain's Erica glaring up at him from her corner of a three-way, promising, "You'll never be rid of me" as he watches, sad-faced and helpless, like a kid who dropped his ice-cream cone.
