The Love Witch (2016)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

6 / 10
This was quite a conflicting movie for me. It has its good and bad, highs and lows.

The movie is set in modern time. People use mobile phones and drive modern cars but it has a retro exterior, with clothes and settings that have you feeling like you're watching something from the 70's. While it is somewhat confusing, I kind of liked that. The movie has a more authentic depiction of witchcraft rather than what we see in most witch movies with evil spells and old hags on broomsticks.

It does feel like the movie is more geared toward a female audience, with a huge emphasis on love and romance. There's even a point where she's on a date with a man, they have a fake marriage ceremony and watch her cringey friends put on some sort of play. Scenes like these were about as comfortable or enjoyable as me taking my daughter shopping for a training bra. So while I had some trouble keeping interest at times throughout the movie, the gorgeous female lead maintained my focus.

This movie is definitely not for everyone, and I'd dare say that many men would struggle with it. I found it hard to pin it down to any particular genres but because it's quite different and has that retro feel to it, some horror fans will have an appreciation for it.
