The Love Witch

  • Carbon Arc Cinema 1747 Summer Street Halifax, NS, B3H 3A6 Canada (map)

dir. Anna Biller / USA / 2016 / 120 minutes

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 ‘60s, Anna Biller's iconic imagery and horror homages explore female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.
