Captures it's time and place perfectly.
16 January 2002 | by (Palos Verdes, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when I was around eight or nine years old. The plot concerns a boy and his mother who move into an old house and find it haunted by a witch. But what happens next (as I recall) is that the three of them open up a restaurant and serve pancakes, which have an interesting effect on people because the witch adds a secret ingredient!

If you liked "Charly" for the way it captured the texture of the late 60's with it's visual style, you will enjoy this film for the same reason. It's a shame that people in search of old short films have so few options when it comes to finding them. So "Winter of the Witch" will remain an obscure and forgotten little gem of a short film, which is sad.
