    Default Witch movie recommendations

    Hey guys, I posted here not in the TV section because I like what Mignola/Hellboy did and continues to do with witches in his tales. Are there movies you can recommend? So far I've seen 3 I like...

    The Craft (1996)
    Warlock (1989)
    Witchfinder General (1969)

    It doesn't have to be similar just what you guys would consider a great witch related movie.

    The Witch (2016) is actually the closest I've seen to The Hellboy witch sensibility.

    Well, I am just beginning to watch House of the Witch, a 2017 made for TV movie. Not sure how good it is, but I can repost after it is over to let you know. A boy just got sucked into the house kicking and screaming. So, a good start!

    Penny Dreadful has some interesting witch storylines throughout the show. Matter of fact, I think if you're into Mignola's work, then the show Penny Dreadful should be enjoyable.

    I believe Mignola said he's a fan of Penny Dreadful.

    He's also been posting his favorite horror/halloween movies over on twitter recently. He posted The Witch (2016) which is absolutely great!

    The wicked witch from The Wizard of Oz is my all-time favorite cinema witch. But, Häxan (1922) is a must see for fans of the genre.

    A couple of things I didn't see mentioned...

    Witchcraft plays into the film Suspiria.

    Witchcraft also plays into the film The Lords Of Salem. It is a surprisingly solid low key horror film.

    Thanks, Major.
    Probably have to watch The Witch and Suspiria soon. Thanks for all your input. Can't believe I forgot Drag me to hell (Sam Raimi)

    By the way, how scary was . . .



    Caper Meets Wendy (1998)

    with young Hilary Duff as Wendy?

    The original Wicker Man has some occult and almost witch-like moments, although possibly not what people are looking for... But what an interesting movie!

    They're kids films, but The Witches and Hocus Pocus were pretty good I thought, and Scooby Doo and the Witch's Ghost is probably the best of the Scooby Doo movies.

    a black and white flick from Estonia and well worth my time. More eery and creepy than horror. Almost felt like The Witch (2016) by way of Tim Burton and in b&w.

    not about "witches" exactly, but the 2018 film "Hereditary" is one of the best horror movies i've seen in years
