Ridiculous - worse than b movies. You'll definitely swear for wasting your time on this cheese pile.

I really wanted to like this movie. The coloring and style is a great homage to 70's grind-house movies. The feminist dialogue was often intentionally hilarious. However is dragged on way too long.

"I'm the love witch, I'm your ultimate fantasy!"
I'm always on the lookout for weird, under the radar films and this fits the bill. It kinda of had me at the title. "The Love Witch" is a strange brew of horror, romance, satire, and homage. Samantha Robinson plays the title character, a glamorous witch who shows up in a small California town and starts casting love spells, some of which have fatal results! The look of the film, which references both classic Hollywood technicolor films and pulpy Italian horror, is incredibly strong and distinctive and points out how few contemporary films have much of an aesthetic. Writer/director/designer Anna Biller is not just recycling old movie though and while there's a tongue in cheek tone at times, she's also interested in gender roles, stereotypes, and feminism. Robinson finds the right balance of innocence and malice and owns every scene she's in. It can be a little slow moving, but it's a film that embraces visual exuberance and oddness, which is hard to find these days.

This is an odd low budget feminist horror movie about a witch who moves to a new town looking for perfect love in all the wrong places. The production values sure make it look like it was something that would have been shot in the early 1960s with clothing,set design and vibrant technicolor. The acting and dialogue is kind of wooden and cheesy on purpose to give that low budget feel of earlier horror movies. That said there is something in the movie that kind of sticks with you and it is just bonkers enough to never be boring.
