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.

Full review: https://letterboxd.com/dylandoorsfan/film/witching-bitching/ 9/10. Bewitching the viewer with a jewel shop robbery involving a man dressed as a toy solider and another man being joined by his young son,as he takes part in the robbery dressed as a silver Jesus, co-writer/(with regular co-writer Jorge Guerricaechevarría) directing auteur Alex de la Iglesia reunites with cinematographer Kiko de la Rica, and performs a breathtaking multiple change of genre,running with the robbers out of the shop in rapid-fire whip-pans that becomes seated in a road movie of smooth criss-crossing pans and zoom-ins on the increased bickering of the robbers.
I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Well worth a watch.
