In the town of Eastwick, Rhode Island, three single women, Alexandra (Cher), Jane (Susan Sarandon), and Sukie (Michelle Pfeiffer), all self-proclaimed witches, gather together for weekly gossip and to commiserate about their lack of romantic prospects. One night during a thunderstorm, they unknowingly conjure up a mysterious man named Daryl Van Horne (Jack Nicholson) who arrives in town and immediately begins to seduce and manipulate each of the women.

Despite their initial resistance, the trio quickly becomes enamored with Daryl's charismatic personality and his supernatural abilities. He encourages them to explore their newfound powers, but as they become more powerful, strange things begin to happen in Eastwick. Daryl's true intentions are eventually revealed as he sets out to gain complete control over the women and the town.

As the women begin to discover the dangers of their witchcraft, they must band together to fight against Daryl's manipulation and save themselves and their town from his control. Along the way, they discover the true power of their friendship and their own inner strength.

Director George Miller (Mad Max) creates a fantastical setting for the story, with stunning visual effects and a richly detailed world. The film seamlessly blends elements of horror, comedy, and romance, making for a unique and thoroughly entertaining viewing experience.
