The Love Witch (2016)

US 120m, Colour
Director: Anna Biller; Cast: Samantha Robinson, Gian Keys, Laura Waddell, Jeffrey Vincent Parise, Jared Sanford, Robert Seeley, Jennifer Ingrum

A labor of love, The Love Witch is Anna Biller’s stylish homage to the early 1970s occult film genre. The film’s protagonist, Elaine is a femme fatale who lures men with her sexual prowess and her intoxicating potions. Overwhelmed by their desires, she leaves a trail of dead lovers who succumb to her power. Biller’s kitschy and comedic filmmaking style and visual aesthetics are clearly nostalgic in origin in this farcical sexploitation adventure (Klaus Ming March 2017).
