Best witch movies
Häxan (1922) Inspired by an old copy of Malleus Maleficarum, Benjamin Christensen’s once-banned film explores medieval beliefs about witchcraft. The Witches (1966) Joan Fontaine leaves Africa for a nice quiet life as an English schoolteacher only to encounter strange doings. Modern sorcery? Or madness? Black Sunday (1966) In Mario Bava’s adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s Viy, cult heroine Barbar Steele is burnt at the stake. But you can’t keep a good witch down. Suspiria (1970) Europudding doesn’t get any tastier than Dario Argento’s kinky, witchy, Goblin-scored, psychedelic psyche-out.
