Horrific October


Joan Mitchell is an unhappy, suburban housewife who has an uncommunicative businessman husband, Jack, and a distant 19-year-old daughter, Nikki, on the verge of moving out of the house. Frustrated at her current situation, Joan seeks solace in witchcraft after visiting a local tarot reader.

Our take

Best known for ushering in the modern idea of zombies, the late George A. Romero applied an incisive level of social commentary in his underrated—even forgotten—non-undead films. Thus, the stellar Season of the Witch takes aim at the nuclear family and invokes witchcraft as an attractive answer.
