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 was refreshing to see a witch movie that is, oddly, realistic. My only complaint is that it’s attitude to the subject matter is incredibly dated.
Not bad ....
I love a good slow burn w/subtext but think that it isnt put across in a clear enough way to really grab you or tell a good story here. Are her "powers" supernatural or is it her paranoia and trauma that is causing things to happen around her? I can tell Romero is trying to have us think more deeply about something here but am not sure what it is ....
It was interesting at times but had some subplots that were never resolved
