THE WITCH WHO CAME FROM THE SEA

Matt Cimber, USA, 1976, Arrow Films, Horror

A great time out at the movies with no equal and belonging to no genre. It will fuck you up for life -- that is, if you’re up for the challenge.

This unnerving journey into madness and murder contains an unforgettable star turn by Millie Perkins (THE SHOOTING, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK) that will sear itself onto your retinas. Perkins plays a tormented woman whose repressed memories of childhood abuse surface in some highly undesirable ways, compelling her to pick up a razor and go after some of the men she sees on TV everyday.

Representing something of an anomaly in the career of director Matt Cimber (who previously specialized in both softcore and blaxploitation fare), this movie certainly could not have been made in a Hollywood studio context -- and it’s also a gigantic anomaly among even drive-in films. A wonderful bonus: its widescreen cinematography comes courtesy of a young Dean Cundey, who’d go on to shoot HALLOWEEN two years later.
