A transformative and exquisite creation by Anna Biller (who directed, produced, wrote, edited, scored and designed every aspect), The Love Witch is a gorgeous-looking tribute to 1960s/70s low-budget horrors, classic American soap operas, Technicolor melodramas and vintage sexploitation aesthetics is an affectionate masterful pastiche with a deft feminist bite.
Think Russ Meyer meets Douglas Sirk and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls via Charmed and Dynasty as lovelorn young witch Elaine (a stunning Samantha Robinson) uses spells and potions to bring her everlasting romantic happiness. Finally meeting her dream man, Elaine’s desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder.
Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However, 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 will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder.
The Love Witch is released in cinemas and digital HD on March 10th and comes to DVD/Blu-ray on March 13th.
