Phyllis Curott is a practicing witch,
a civil rights lawyer, and more than a little upset these days with what’s
on the silver screen.
“The Blair Witch Project makes witches
out to be evil hags who want to kill children. This fictitious movie puts
real witches at risk,” says Curott.
“We just had an incident last week
when someone reacted to ancient Jewish stereotypes. We must be careful.”
The recent shootings at a Jewish
child-care center in Los Angeles touched the Ivy League-educated Curott,
who was born to a Jewish mother and has been practicing witchcraft since
the late 1970s.
Now, Curott and her coven aren’t
about to turn the Blair filmmakers into frogs, nor has she summoned her
magical powers as a lawyer with that magical incantation, “I’ll sue.”
