Critic Reviews for The Witch Who Came from the Sea

All Critics (10) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2)

  • The Witch Who Came from the Sea is actually a lot more ambitious than its sleazier moments might suggest, both as a conceptualization of distressed female sexuality and problematic assessments of fairy tales and classic mythology.

    October 8, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Works more as a psychological horror verging on slasher, not requiring such an ugly display of sexual violence as other 'popular' rape-revenge movies.

    May 5, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It all climaxes in one of the most affecting, tragic and strangely beautiful final acts I've ever seen a horror movie. If you can even call THE WITCH FROM THE SEA simply a horror movie. It is one, but it's so much more...

  • If you ever find yourself arguing that the idiots behind the 'video nasties' list didn't have a clue what they were doing, The Witch Who Came from the Sea should be your Exhibit A. This film doesn't deserve its schlocky reputation.

  • A fascinating psycho-sexual horror.

    January 17, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Molly... is a complex flesh-and-blood character whose derangement is presented with immense sensitivity and sympathy - and her descent into madness is figured less as visceral slice-and-dice than as heightened domestic tragedy.

Audience Reviews for The Witch Who Came from the Sea

  • Mar 01, 2016
    Bizarre mish-mash of sexuality, horror, terrible & great writing, exploitation and art-house, that works just over 50% of the time. Certainly one for those interested in bizarre forgotten horror films.

    Another "video nasty", but this time rather good. It drifts a bit in the middle, but there's some really interesting stuff going on and the final act is great stuff.
