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

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.

Witching & Bitching is an overly bizarre film that does fit Alex de la Iglesia's repertoire, but at the same time pushes the boundaries of fun and outrageous which results in a ludicrous atmosphere.

It's warped, it's frantic, it's dark -- and it's an entertaining bit of guilty-pleasure, midnight-movie craziness

June 19, 2014 Full Review Source: Times-Picayune

This madcap horror comedy is the typically insane genre gumbo that de la Iglesia regularly puts together for his fanbase, replete with religious blasphemy, slapstick comedy, bawdy sex and inspired, watery gore.

Witching & Bitching is a perfect example of how Video On Demand horror movies are making Hollywood's mainstream titles look like bargain bin garbage in comparison.

"Witching and Bitching" is accordingly overlong, and conceptually thin. But like most of de la Iglesia's films, it's also freakishly energetic, and often hysterical.

A smorgasbord of broad comic and horror ideas.

June 12, 2014 Full Review Source: CraveOnline

When de la Igesia is firing on all cylinders, he brings wonderful verve to the screen, always securing the entertainment value of the work while tinkering with its gruesome particulars. It's a wickedly funny movie.

June 11, 2014 Full Review Source:

A simple yet utterly bonkers battle of the sexes that chuckles at male chauvinism before castrating it completely.

Full of weird and wonderful insanity, Witching and Bitching is the kind of wild ride you don't look away from. The insanity is magnetic.

There's something admirable about a film-maker who throws caution to the wind and just runs with an idea. Even one that turns out to be utterly ridiculous.

Anarchy unleashed. Never dull.

June 8, 2014 Full Review Source: Compuserve

Álex de la Iglesia has a real flair for wild action sequences that remain exhilaratingly coherent and sensical.

The effects-heavy finale goes some way to reinforcing the film's horror credentials, and a minor epilogue revives a dash of comedy, but it's an imperfect end to an adventure that started off so well.
