Season of the Witch

Directed by George A. Romero

After NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, master of horror George A. Romero turned his eye to witches. On the surface, Joan Mitchell has it all – family, friends, and a beautiful home equipped with all the latest appliances. But when a neighbor educates her on the practice of witchcraft, Joan believes she’s discovered the perfect antidote to her monotonous suburban existence, and embarks upon a dark path that will lead to a shocking conclusion.

George Romero's tale of a suburban housewife, witchcraft, and the dark, shocking results.

Cast: Jan White, Raymond Laine, Ann Muffly

It wasn't Romeros best work in my opinion, sounds fascinating and I do appreciate some of what it brings. Most of it wasn't engaging with it feeling all over the place, I kind of thought they could have done more with the daughter part it felt like a lost component of the plot. I think Romero was going for a subtle housewives shot at witchcraft so it didn't come off too extreme. Very boring though with some moments that don't make a whole lot of sense.

Sounds fascinating and you got George Romero but I was pretty lost throughout the movie personally. I thought at certain points it was reeling me in then I zoned out I'm not sure what to think of it at all. Not romeros best work at all in my opinion. WTF moments. The joint scene was funny though.

This movie is a vibe but it isn’t for everyone. For the time it was made I think it is a really good representation and also metaphor for what married women had to deal with back then. If you get it then you get it. If you don’t then well you don’t.

I found it atmospheric and aesthetic. I enjoyed it and will be thinking about it for a while. There were a few scary moments. The movie plays with tension and timing.
