Witch's Brew A Zen Film

Witchs Brew
A Scott Shaw - Donald G. Jackson Zen Film

Professor Andre' DuVena' (Scott Shaw) travels into the back woods of Southern California to find three college students who have disappeared while searching for an allusive mythical witch.

Vividly film in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Big Sur, Harmony, Mono Lake, and the Back Woods of Southern California.

Witch's Brew was produced and directed by Scott Shaw and
Donald G. Jackson. This movie stars Scott Shaw and has a great cast of co-stars including Dee Wallace who was at the height of her adult film superstardom at the time of the creation of this Zen Film. She first appeared in the Shaw/Jackson production of Guns of El Chupacabra and later in The Rock n' Roll Cops.


  • Witch's Brew was filmed in two distinct time frames. The film was initially created in 1998 but was put on hold by Jackson and Shaw as they went on to do other features. After Jackson passed away in 2003, Shaw finalized many of the films that Jackson and he had initially begun but were not completed. This was one of the final Jackson/Shaw productions that Shaw finished in 2007.

  • The initial 1998 filming segment of this movie involving actors in the apartment, pool, driving, going into the woods, and Shaw's character in areas of wooded California was a script-based production written by an established screenwriter who was a long-time friend of Jackson. Meaning, this was not wholly a Zen Film.

  • Some have compared the scripted segment of this film to the Blair Witch Project. This was not the case, however. The screenplay for this film was written and those segments were filmed before the release of the Blair Witch Project, which came out in 1999. The inspiration for this film came from elements such as the myth of the Jersey Devil and movies like The Legend of Boggy Creek.
