The Witch
1 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Stunningly beautiful Ursula Andress(before starring as Honey Ryder from "Dr. No") stars as Luana, an innocent young woman in Italy targeted for death by drowning by superstitious men who think her a witch because of her evil grandmother(played with relish by Jeanette Nolan). She is rescued from the river by a young artist named Tonio(played by Alejandro Rey), who falls in love with her, but their budding romance is doomed to tragedy when the grandmother tracks her down, issuing a curse on Tonio for not revealing her hiding place. Stylish and authentic chiller is quite downbeat and grim, but equally memorable as well.
