This new trailer for The Love Witch is all about love, sex and magic as it pays homage to flicks from the 1960s. From the soundtrack, over-the-top production design and retro costuming to the glittery lighting and melodramatic acting, you’ll be easily fooled into thinking that this is a supernatural horror from 1960, not 2016.
The Love Witch has been written and directed by Anna Biller and is her follow-up to 2007’s comedy-drama Viva, which is another throwback to the past. Despite its clear 60s style, The Love Witch is set in modern-day California and follows a witch who makes potions to make men fall in love with her. In true melodramatic style, it all goes a bit topsy-turvy when the men start dying.
The Love Witch will be screening at the UK’s Horror Channel FrightFest on Saturday 27th August and will be receiving a limited theatrical release in the USA on 28th October. Check out the sumptuous trailer below and you can read our interview with director Anna Biller right here.
