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
this should be a legend in the "so bad it's good" hall of fame
Love Romero, but this one’s boring as shit. I’d rather watch Barry Lyndon again.
This film is a different pace of horror for me, and favor suspense in my horror. Season of the Witch is a dramatic, supernatural drama. There's a splash of subliminal messaging about finding yourself in cookie cutter fantasies. Also, a bit trippy, for my fans of psychedelics in their horror.
I enjoyed this movie, although a bit slow, it was fun.
Slow build and a great payoff at the end!
