Joan (Jan White), a woman not long past her prime, is seriously bored in her life as housewife and mother of a grown-up daughter, Nikki (Joedda McClain), while her husband no longer turns her on, doesn't care to understand her, and is out of town most of the time anyways. Her female friends are all pretty much the same as she is, bored housewives taking to drinking a little bit too much. And then she meets Gregg (Raymond Laine), a provocative intellectual who's also the fuckbuddy of her daughter (who runs away when she finds out her mother gets turned on by their lovemaking), and even though he stands for everything she doesn't approve of, she feels drawn to him - which she could never admit as such, thus she turns to witchcraft to lure him into her lair ... but it's less than certain whether him wanting to have sex with her, a still rather attractive woman, has anything to do with magick. Along the way though, Joan's powers or her perception thereof are slipping out of her hands - to rather unfortunate results ...

 

Despite George A. Romero directing and despite the word "witch" in the title, this is hardly a horror movie (but has horror elements in it) but a social satire, and it works rather brilliantly as just that while navigating its way through many genres including horror, thriller, drama, comedy etc. but creating a very original and genre-less piece of art that might be deeply rooted in indie genre cinema, also when it comes to looks and feel. And while Season of the Witch is not totally on par with Romero's horror masterpieces, it's still worth a watch for its uniqueness, not only in the man's filmography, but indie cinema in general.
