MIFF: The Love Witch

Comedy Horror


A woman experiments with love and sex magic that creates unexpected and sometimes gruesome results.

"The Love Witch" is a misguided attempt to highlight the dangers of romantic idealism and dating expectations in the modern world. While this film aims to be a story of female empowerment and freedom of sexual expression, it ends up making a mockery of love, romance and female sexuality. Throw an overly long run time, terrible dialogue and atrocious acting into the cauldron and you end up with this disappointing concoction. No love for this witch.
