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
Odd little movie, Check it out.
Fun, a little psychadelic. Slow paced, but all those 70s horror films are. Worth a watch, for sure.
Crazy weird fun, give it a watch.
I found this to drag on quite a bit, although it was meant to be from a woman's perspective it didn't really dig deep enough into maddening drudgery that causes these midlife crises. It's very surface level and lacks some nuance. It does have some creepy visuals and interesting themes for the time period it was released in, but looking at it now in 2022 after so many other movies have come out that went farther, it's not really Romero's best.
Her dreams in the earlier parts of the movie are more horrifying than anything resulting from the witchcraft. Also, I'm fairly confident that no one with decision-making power in the making of this movie had any experience with weed whatsoever.
