What it is: Witch story

A banker gets married to a mysterious woman who turns out to be a witch… and is after his money.

At its best, the British TV series “Thriller” gave us interesting and offbeat stories; at its worst, the stories were obvious and slow-moving. This is one of the latter; I’ve seen the basic premise several times before, and the low-budget TV production and dull direction do little to enliven the story. However, I do find it fortunate that I picked up a complete collection of the series when the opportunity arose; it looks like quite a few of these are popping up on my hunt list, and it’s handy not to hunt all over for them.
