Watch: Full Trailer for Melodramatic 'The Love Witch' Horror Comedy
"She loved men… to death." Oscilloscope has released an official trailer (that's NSFW) for a horror comedy called The Love Witch, written & directed by Anna Biller. The film is a tribute to 1960s pulp novels and Technicolor melodramas, which is why it looks the way it does, and is about a contemporary witch who uses spells and magic to get men to fall in love with her. But after she ends up sleeping with them, they all end up dead, which is not what she was hoping for but can't really control. Samantha Robinson stars as Elaine, with a cast including Elle Evans, Jeffrey Vincent Parise, Dani Lennon, Lily Holleman, and Gian Keys. As funky as this seems, it actually has great reviews calling it "spellbinding & hilarious". Take a look.
Here's the official NSFW trailer (+ a poster) for Anna Biller's The Love Witch, direct from YouTube:
Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However, her spells work too well, leaving her with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. The Love Witch is both written & directed by filmmaker Anna Biller, of the film Viva and a number of short films previously. This first premiered at the Rotterdam Film Festival and also played at Edinburgh, BAMcinemaFest and Fantasia. Oscilloscope will open The Love Witch in select theaters starting November 11th later this year. Curious?
Okay, that was just terrible.

Lol they nailed the look. I thought the trailer was pretty hilarious, but I don't think I'd watch a feature version of it.

Some of the stills look spot on but the effect gets lost somewhat when in motion. It does looks intriguing but also terrible.

It would be really great if leading actress or role was more credible... I understand the tribute to 1960s but there's no more audience from that time. Something more clever should've come up regarding this was tribute to 1960s. From 2016...

Not sure what they're going for with this, is it a porno minus the sex?

Sex, drugs and witchcraft.

This looks so good, like a nice throwback to early technicolor movies of the late sixties
