I'm telling you that Spanish Horror is making a come back. This is a most welcome change, and with the new release of Wax along with IFC Midnight putting out Witching and Bitching on DVD, let's just hope that these are a sign of things to come. I have not had the chance to watch Witching and Bitching yet, but we will be reviewing in the coming weeks.
I love the concept and am excited for my first Spanish Horror Comedy (featuring witches no less just in time for Halloween!). The poster is definitely light hearted and fun with a great logo for the picture's title.
Full Release from IFC Midnight
When a bank heist in the city doesn't all go according to plan, Jose and Tony find themselves in possession of some hostages and speeding through the mountains of Spain, hoping to quietly slip over the border. Not wanting to give up his custody days to his ex-wife, Jose has also brought his son along for both the robbery and the ride. Little do they know that this is only the beginning of their troubles, as they soon make a stop in a small tavern in the Basque countryside and find themselves the honored guests of a fractured family of witches who are preparing for an ancient ritual. With WITCHING AND BITCHING, cult director Alex de la Iglesia (As Luck Would Have It, The Last Circus) serves up nervous laughs, action and thrills in this visually inventive comedy that builds toward a jaw-dropping climax with plenty of scares and surprises along the way. It's "a swift, dark and nasty horror comedy that occasionally dances into territory deemed taboo by American filmmakers" (Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald) - as well as "entertaining as hell from beginning to end" (Patrick Cooper, Bloody Disgusting).
