Love Witch, The (15)

Love Witch, The (15)

Comedy, Horror

A modern-day witch uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her, in a tribute to 1960s pulp novels and Technicolor melodramas.

The critical consensus

A genre-stretching horror melodrama crafted with extraordinary detail and style. A touch languid, it’s also mesmerising, provocative, unsettling and sensual.

****(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 06/03/2017

Ingenious comedy horror from Anna Biller that celebrates and satirises 60s cinema.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 06/03/2017

As enjoyable on a purely aesthetic level and as a feminist text, this film will be cherished for years to come.

****(*)Elena Lazic, Little White Lies, 06/03/2017

Even in the film’s most far-fetched moments, Biller has trenchant points to make about conservative, middle-class America’s fear of female sexuality and the double standards that apply to men and women’s romantic behaviour.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 08/03/2017

Biller delivers wry comment on the objectification of women in a film that’s as smart as it is sumptuous.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 09/03/2017

Drenched in the Technicolor 60s, Anna Biller’s outrageous, showstopping B-movie oozes with A-grade potency.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 09/03/2017

Anna Biller captures the colours, style and mores of the lurid 70s in this near-perfect pastiche.

****(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 12/03/2017
