Audience Reviews for Simon, King of the Witches
Fun and "groovy" 70's witch flick. Not really a horror film, but with some horror trappings. Surprising darkly comedic touches throughout. Andrew Prine's performance as Simon really caries the film.
Simon is an odd character and an odd film and actually pretty tame considering the subject matter. It's not nearly as 'anti-establishment' as it would like to be and, somehow, it manages to avoid becoming pure camp. It you're a fan of odd 70's psychedelic cult fantasy, here you go.
I wasn't sure what I was getting into with this one, and since it turns out to more 'groovy' than 'horror' oriented I'm still a little conflicted about what my feelings are towards it. It's an interesting watch, but felt more like a 'cult' film than a true horror movie, which was what I was expecting. But if you ever wanted a movie to give you acid trips and witchcraft in the same scene, this is definitely the film for you. Rental?
