SEASON OF THE WITCH FESTIVAL

Welcome to our classic retrospective of Witch-themed cinema, all screening during the spookiest month of the year: October!  


Witches are a recurring staple of genre cinema, often providing an excuse for stylish exercises in cinematic form. Atmospheric drive-through B-Movies such as "Night of the Eagle" and "City of the Dead" are both riveting examples, as are Dario Argento’s memorable giallo films "Suspiria" and "Inferno".

With films like Michael Reeves’ "Witchfinder General", the violent and lurid potential of the material becomes particularly pronounced, but so does the inherent thematic underpinnings, particularly around gender injustice and the plight of women in the domestic sphere. We see this in many of the films in our programme, ranging from the artful, yet emotionally excruciating Carl Theodor Dreyer film "Day of Wrath" to the far lighter and hilarious Veronica Lake romantic comedy "I Married a Witch".
