Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However her spells work too well, and she ends up with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the 1970s, THE LOVE WITCH explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.
Much of the set decorations and costumes were hand made by the director. See more »

Seixest, most vibrant and daringly original cinematic vision of 2016!
The film is a work of genius, even way more powerful than I imagined it would play from just watching the trailer alone. This was no throwback to the 1960s, no retread of nostalgia that I may have initially been led to believe.
Truth be told, I'm not even sure I fully absorbed it on a single viewing, I was too busy being totally seduced and turned on by every sumptuous frame, but I know it all made sense in the subconscious. On the surface alone, it's one of the sexiest films I've ever seen, on its interior, a mandala of sex politics. Totally hypnotic, I walked out literally spellbound, and have already seen it twice in the theaters.
I could go and on because it's one of those films that got me excited about cinema again, the work of a true individual vision, and it's a film I'll be revisiting a lot. A true cult classic, and Film freaks everywhere have taken notice!
