Four witches on a Wednesday afternoon. They stand looking past the camera, behind them is a tree and a wooden fence. Three of the four women have blood running down their chins.
Cackle Comedy Productions presents four fearlessly funny females, Hilary June Hart, Karen Scobie, Cora Matheson, and Anna Jane Edmonds, as four suburban moms exploring witchcraft on a Wednesday afternoon. Grossly funny, silly, and shocking, this short explores a whole new level of friendship and comfort levels.
Sensory Warning: Fake blood
