According to Virginia-based occult expert David Benoit, the Nicole Kidman movie will make witchcraft seem so harmless to folks especially to kiddies that it will inspire them to give it a shot themselves.
He says this isnt a good idea because any kind of spellcasting can attract real demons which possess the people performing the witchcraft.
Although Benoit doesnt think sorcerers are relying on Bewitched to recruit new members, he says it doesnt help that Kidmans character is portrayed as normal, even likable.
He thinks folks wont be able to see that real-life witches arent like that at all.
In his words, If humans could decipher between fantasy and reality, we wouldnt have World Wrestling Entertainment.
Benoit is the author of 14 Things Witches Hope Parents Never Find Out (Hearth Stone Publishing).
