AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Dark, nasty, and delightfully subversive, Witching and Bitching is gross-out genre fun with a heaping helping of warped comedy for good measure.

Movie Info

When your marriage has you on the brink and your bank account in red, it's time to rob a Cash-for-Gold shop. That's the last-ditch decision made by a group of desperate guys led by divorced dad JOSÉ. They make it out of the shop with a bag full of 25,000 gold wedding rings and flag down a cab. So do they run south to Morocco? Not easy getting through with a cab... Looks like it's north to France. The guys enter the impenetrable forests of Basque Country, home to ancient covens and witchery. They run head-on with a horde of crazed women who feed on human flesh. Trapped in a mysterious mansion, the witches try to seize the rings at all cost and to rip out our heroes' souls to boot. (c) Film Factorymore

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (6)

A swift, dark and nasty horror comedy that occasionally dances into territory deemed taboo by American filmmakers.

The buddy comedy, gross-out humor and horror elements make for a harmonious mix.

Plenty of movies sympathize with outcasts, but only De La Iglesia's sympathize with their ugliest feelings: envy, resentment, and self-loathing.

Projectile pukes its outrages at you with a gusto recalling the early days of those (sadly) reformed upchuckers Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson.

Alex de la Iglesia has experimented with various genres down the years, but the shamelessly crowd-pleasing Witching and Bitching is a return to what he does best -- pure mayhem.

Not high art by any means, but it is pretty entertaining if you like a good slice of crazy horror-movie fun once in awhile.

Audience Reviews for Witching and Bitching

Witching and Bitching has enough substance that it can (oddly enough) withstand the several genre drifts it goes through.

A hyperactive, fantastical splatter farce that starts with a mere bank heist and graduates to epic, mass witch rituals, just when you think it can't get any bigger or grosser, it does, and has you laughing out loud in the process. Unexpectedly incredible.

½

its unsure how to take this for a slew of reasons- 1. seemlying legit actors made to say/act out scenes in a unbecoming and unfunny way. 2. some epic budgets somehow thrown away on cgi and orange backlights coming from everywhere all the time. 3. story plots just either completely magically solved or dropped. 4. a droning script that seems like it should be entertaining yet just comes off as a Adam Sandler movie at times.
