“She Loved Men…To Death.”
If you haven’t heard of this new film, you are missing a classic modernization of 70’s cult horror…time to celebrate this terrific new “Love Witch!”
Meet Elaine, a beautiful young witch, who is determined to find a man to love her. Watch the trailer to really see what kind of retro cult gem this is:
Elaine stays in her gothic Victorian apartment making 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.
Director Anna Biller also wrote the film, designed the sets and made many of the costumes – with a sharp eye toward classic 70’s exploitation!
The film is a modern twist on classic serial killer films, with a woman’s sexuality being the catalyst for carnage.
“The Love Witch” is one of the last films to cut an original camera negative on 35mm film, and was lit and shot to look like a 1960’s Technicolor film. So a modern take on a classic film genre – bravo!
“The Love Witch” is now on demand, so check it out! This poster and visual style reminded me of another cult classic:
Yes, iconic exploitation Actress Soledad Miranda was stunning in “She Killed In Ecstasy” – exactly the kind of “artsploitation” that “Love Witch” evokes. See more here:
Speaking of witches:
Yes, “witches” have always been big box office, especially when naked! See more of that malarkey here:
And finally, here’s another “empowered female” horror story for you:
Yes, it’s “The Lure” of zombie mermaid strippers – and it’s a musical! See the trailer and much more here:
Let me know if you’ve checked out “The Love Witch!”

That new film looks really good, John. A real homage to the genre, that feels as if it might well have been released in 1968. They did a great job!
Best wishes, Pete.
