The story deals with the curse of the witch Margaret Morgan on the town of Salem and its effects on a beautiful, young DJ, Hiedi Hawthorne. The film features a bevy of Zombie driven visuals from giant bigfoot like creatures to mummified priests and, of course, a coven of witches. Listen as Doc and Santos debate how successful Rob Zombie is with the film and how wonderful and frightening Meg Foster is as Margaret Morgan.
