"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?
