• I have a soft spot for old horror films, especially the ones in Black and white which adds some chilling ambience to the whole feel of the picture. The concept of witches is an intriguing one for the 60's and this one pulls it off wonderfully. Released around the same time as Psycho, this film provides all the right tricks to generate the creeps without excessive blood and gore (in fact there's barely any blood), even provides a similar premise without feeling like it's a blatant copy. Strong performances from Christopher Lee and Patricia Jessel bringing a sense of sinisterness that's very quaint that can ambush the protagonists when they least expect it. I won't reveal whether there will be survivors and if the evil is defeated but there's one thing that's certain, you'll certainly return to this one again and again.
