Simon, King of the Witches ★★ ½ 1971 (R)

An L.A. warlock who lives in a sewer drain finds himself the center of attention when his spells actually work. This interesting hippie/ witchcraft entry bogs down now and then but Prine's performance is droll and lively. 90m/C VHS . Andrew Prine, Brenda Scott, George Paulsin, Norman Burton, Ultra Violet; D: Bruce Kessler; W: Robert Phippeny; C: David L. Butler.
