Definitely a different film. This kept me very interested. I recently purchased "Season of the Witch" on DVD, the picture is a bit muddy, but I can look past that. The movie begins with Jan White and her husband walking through the woods, it's a bit Tripp. In general, this film isn't too scary. However, the nightmare scenes are a bit frightening, the crazy music overall. I was disappointed with one part however, Jan White's daughter, Joedda McCain ends up disappearing. Later on in the movie, the never do actually find out where she is. Overall, this should probably be categorized as a psychological film, none the less, an excellent piece of work.
