Plot Synopsis:
The dark arts hold a special intrigue for Kate, a magazine writer who's trying to convince her editors to run a feature story on modern day witchcraft. When Miss Athena, a professional voodoo queen comes to town, she recognizes Kate's untapped abilities, and convinces her to dabble in magic. What follows is either a string of bizarre coincides or a powerful spell unleashed by Kate that can't be controlled. As Kate tries to contain the fallout, circumstances spiral from the ridiculous to the sublime, and on the way lead to a graveyard, a séance and all kinds of mayhem culminating in a desperate attempt to resurrect her boss, who may not even be dead!
