Witching and Bitching
Directed by Alex de la Iglesia
Divorced dad Jose makes a last ditch effort for cash and dignity when he, his kid and a ragtag gang of buffoons rob a pawn shop. On the run with the kid, plenty of gold and a whole lot of gripes against the women in their lives, the men run afoul of a family of witches in rural Spain. A spectacularly wild war of the sexes ensues in madman filmmaker Alex de la Iglesia's (DAY OF THE BEAST, THE LAST CIRCUS) witchy, witty horror comedy which premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto International Film Festival. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

a really fun film, recommended for everyone.
Quality! This film has everything: suspense, comedy, gore, love, real-world problems, the lot! I don't speak the native language, but I have always prefer films to be shown with subtitles as I can get a better sense of feeling from the original screenplay and the passion from the script. Deffo a 4.5 for me.
One of my favourite movies !
Well worth a watch if you're after something "different". Funny, entertaining and oh my god!
Absolutely batshit insane, it was so fast-paced I failed to keep up. I think I need to watch the second half again just to go over what was missed. I’ve never seen a movie quite like this, I’d recommend it purely for the sheer insanity and hilariousness of it all .
