A newcomer to a fancy ballet academy gradually comes to realize that the staff of the school are actually a coven of witches bent on chaos and destruction.
Basically an American girl who loves ballet goes to Germany to join a very popular school there. Unfortunately it is run by witches. For a horror film, it is not that scary. It has the potential to be creepy and spooky, but not scary. Plus the fact you really don't see any witches. Well you do, but that would spoil it. The story line is ok for the film, but really doesn't have the suspense it needed to give a dynamite ending. Jessica Harper plays the main role and does a decent job. There are many side characters and they split with good and bad acting. There are many funny scenes in the film that you have to pay attention to see. For example, there is a pool in the school. Harper and another girl swim in shorts and a shirt. Why they didn't let them wear suits, I don't know. But the funny thing is that all they wore were shirts and you can easy see through them. The music for the film was played by a group called "The Goblins". This definitely gave the film a spooky feel. You would hear the music and it would make it feel like Halloween. So the movie did have a decent story line and it was fun to watch. Of course it could of been better, but at least you wanted to wait to the end to see what it happening. This is truly a better movie to watch than most horror films now a days.
