The Love Witch
Directed by Anna Biller
Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions. She then picks up men and seduces them, but her spells work too well, leaving her with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the 1960s, The Love Witch explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE. Contains sexual scenes, violence and gore.
A modern-day witch uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, in a tribute to 1960s Technicolor thrillers

Fun if you’re into the visual style. Very 60s and camp.
Brilliant, beautiful, beguiling
Lovely homage to Jean Rollin cinema and other 60's trends, beautifully full of winks and references to that era. Worth a watch if you are into the style. Otherwise stay out.
Beautiful to look at, painful to watch.
