Elaine, a beauteous witch, seeks love. She casts spells and concocts potions to seduce men, but she seems to leave a string of hapless victims behind her. Then she falls hard for the rugged police detective who’s investigating her for murder.
The Love Witch is striking to behold visually: decor, costumes, Elaine’s vintage beauty, all cohere to recall Hollywood’s blazing Technicolor thrillers of the 1960s. But Anna Diller also nods to the lush, violent world of the giallo, for her anti-heroine – prim princess and femme fatale all in one – is enacting a deadly female fantasy.
