Fall under the spell of this intoxicating retro-thriller.
Elaine (Samantha Robinson), a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes love potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However, her sorcery works only 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.
Writer-director Anna Biller’s homage to kitsch late-1960s and 1970s occult thrillers adds a subversive – and stylish – feminist twist to the horror genre. 'The Love Witch' is a cult-classic in the making.
