Critic Reviews for The Witch Who Came from the Sea
This release is Arrow Video's symbolic demand to unlock the auteurist prescriptions of many prestige, home-video releases.
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.
No excerpt available.
Straddles an exploitation line in telling a simple tale with an unexpected degree of pretense and, if only occasionally, artistry.
Audience Reviews for The Witch Who Came from the Sea
Weird mid-70's trip that will make you think you're pill popping and drinking like the 'heroine' Molly. Not great, but engaging and definitely in the bizarro category.
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.
This movie sorta surprised me, as I went into it expecting a straight up witch to be killing people, but as it turns out there's just a fairly normal slasher type story to be found here. That said, I enjoyed it pretty well as this unbalanced gal starts hacking up her various lovers and other men in the nearby sleep seaside town. Fun stuff, give it a look.
