The Love Witch (2016)

The Love Witch goes beyond camp, beyond pastiche; it ignites the pulpy surfaces of its tale and produces a smoke of bad-dream sexiness and scariness. It's a B-movie with A-grade potency. ” Peter Bradshaw Guardian


Be put under the spell of Anna Biller, the director, writer, designer, producer and editor of The Love Witch. A dreamy homage of the intoxicating late 60’s, lovingly shot on 35mm.

Elaine (Samantha Robinson), 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.
