Utterly disappointing
16 December 2015 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I have enjoyed the Thriller series, and have been aware that particularly in its second season the stories' tone shifted from film noir drama to horror. Other viewers' comments on this site likewise painted La Strega as a near-traumatic chiller fest, not for the faint-hearted. So I watched it and... nothing. Perhaps it may have indeed seemed scary to a three-year-old back in 1962. But to a grownup, and/or by today's standards, the horrifying elements are conspicuous by their absence. Even the climax scene depicting a black sabbath of sorts looks and feels more like a segment from Mikhail Baryshnikov's White Oak Dance Project than a blood-curling peek into the occult.
