First, allow me to preface this with the thought that these witch movies are ones I REALLY liked if I wanted to watch a scary movie, and of course at Halloween. I love witch movies, so naturally, I’ve seen a lot of them. I tend to lean towards movies that make you think, re-think, and over-think the plot. Without further delay, here are my recommendations for Witch movies to get you through October.
- The VVitch: A New-England Folk Tale
Let me just say, this movie is epic in many, many ways. If you’re looking for an actual witch movie with a New-England backdrop, this is it! My only warning is that the dialogue is very “Shakespearean” in nature and may require subtitles and a little extra thought.
- The Blair Witch Project
Yeah, yeah. We all know this is a good movie. It would almost be remiss if I didn’t add this movie to the list. I enjoyed this movie has a high schooler and still do to this day. This particular movie was a key player in starting some of the more common cult movies along with the “close and personal” type of cinematography. Either way, it’s a classic October watch.
- The Skeleton Key
This one can be loosely lumped into the “witch” category, but it’s still a great movie to keep you on the edge of your seat. I recommend this because I really like plot twists. If you enjoy a movie that takes you off the edge and back again, this is your movie.
I always joke that I need intermissions between these movies because they make me so anxious and on edge, but, I’d advise making this weekend a witchin’ weekend with my top 3 pics.
