Perhaps the most unclassifiable of filmmaker George A. Romero s works, 1972 s Season of the Witch sees the Night of the Living Dead filmmaker returning to the realm of the supernatural for this bewitching tale of a housewife driven to an interest in the dark arts.

On the surface, Joan Mitchell has it all family, friends, and a beautiful home equipped with all the latest appliances. But when a neighbour educates her on the practice of witchcraft, Joan believes she s discovered the perfect antidote to her monotonous suburban existence, and embarks upon a dark path that will lead to a shocking conclusion.

Filmed as Jack s Wife and subsequently cut down and retitled Hungry Wives for its theatrical release in an attempt to market it as a sexploitation film, Season of the Witch is arguably one of Romero s most overlooked films an intimate and thought-provoking character study that serves as the perfect companion piece to his later Martin.
