Catalan Genre, Telefonica’s Movistar Plus Boost 2016 Sitges Festival
Barcelona — Featuring a scaled-up presence of giant Spanish telco Telefonica, a second edition of its mini-mart Sitges Pitchbox and its traditional welter of genre, thriller and fantasy fair, the 49th Sitges Festival, one of the world’s most prominent genre meets, kicks off today with the European premiere of Miguel Ángel Vivas’ “Inside.

Rachel Nichols and Laura Harring star.

Witching & Bitching | Blu-ray Review

Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia returns with Witching and Bitching, a nod to his particular brand of zany, over-the-top genre comedy that marked some of his better known titles from 1990s, particularly The Day of the Beast (1995). Bigger budgets and a cadre of returning cast members from his filmography make his latest film of a higher pedigree than those roughhewn beginnings, but the director still insists on bloating his running time as an overstuffed extravaganza. As usual, this gilds the energetic exuberance to a desensitizing mass of standout moments rising out of chintzy, cheeseball antics.

Disguised as live street performers in Madrid, Jose (Hugo Silva) and Tony (Mario Casas) hold up a jewel shop and steal a bunch of gold rings. Jose is desperate to flee with his son from ex-wife Silvia (Macarena Gomez) since he’s tired of paying alimony. While several of their street performing cohorts are
