Father James (Graham King) has had himself transferred to a small town
parrish, quite probably to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the
countryside ... but heck, the place where he's gotten to is anything but
peaceful and tranquil: Young girls are disappearing at an almost regular
interval, a witches' coven (led by Lilith Astaroth) has set up camp just
outside of town, and the local Sheriff (Tony Ramos Wright) turns out to be
a violence-prone homosexual gay-hating prick - so that alone is enough for
Father James to doubt his faith already - but then two witchhunters
(Richard Chandler, Carver Riot) turn up on his doorstep, psychopathic and
incestuous siblings with a tendency for ultra-violence - and while it's
certain that they WILL be able to do things, and in the Lord's name even,
it's more than a little doubtful that that will be for the better ...
one thing's for certain, Witch Hunt is definitely not your
run-of-the-mill contemporary horror - and not only because it takes
inspiration from a wide array of genre mainstays, not only from the horror
genre, but also from sexploitation, spaghetti westerns and the like, and
despite the occasional chuckle, this one never becomes an over-the-top
spoof ... well, over-the-top perhaps, but don't expect this movie to be a
And after having depicted everything Witch Hunt might
not be, it actually IS quite a tene little horror thriller that has got an
interesting story to tell that is wrapped into fittingly outrageous
pictures - that help the narrative though rather than distract from it.
And a very solid cast of course helps to get all this across.
worth a watch!!!
