Romero's own Belle du Jour.

Slant Magazine

It's certainly an interesting film, but fans of Romero's Martin (1978) or his zombie films will not find more of the same.

Audience Reviews for Season of the Witch


I was hoping for some sort of horror film, but instead this one is more of a counter-culture portrait from the mid-'70s, so this sort of felt more like a Something Weird Video title than I was expecting it to.


George Romero's post Night and pre Dawn tale of a housewife's descent into witchcraft is entertaining and benefits from decent cinematography. It gets a little heavy handed with some of the dialogue but has that aura of a dream like state in some of the scenes that I am fond of.

Rodney Eckrich

Romero's character study/drama with some horror trappings dealing with a put-upon housewife in the early 70's who finds an escape through the occult. While the acting, sound, and film quality can all be a bit rough at times, the film is still worth a peak as a time capsule.
