Trivia

Morgan LeFay appears as Doctor Strange's foe in this movie. Oddly enough, Morgan LeFay was introduced to the modern era of Marvel comics in Spider-Woman #2 (after an appearance in a dream in Son of Satan #8), just a few months before the air date of this movie, and did not encounter Doctor Strange until Avengers #240-241, published in 1984.

Quotes

Thomas Lindmer: If I were to tell you that ignorance has been a kind of protection for you and that there's a price you have to pay if you are to understand your destiny, would you still choose understanding over ignorance?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Yes.

Excellent movie about a sorcerers apprentice
20 April 1999 | by POODYSee all my reviews

A tv pilot that should have been a series. The christian coalition boycotted this excellent portrayal of demonology. The sponsors decided it was too controversial to air as a serial, A real shame, the suspense and eerie soundtrack made for excellent viewing...
