THE LOVE WITCH ~ EXCLUSIVE MELBOURNE SEASON AT LIDO

We're thrilled to be screening The Love Witch exclusively in Melbourne from Thursday 16 February.

Selected for Melbourne International Film Festival last year, it's a vibrant ode to Technicolour exploitation films and giallo Italian horror of the 1960s and 70s, which subverts the traditional male gaze of this genre with playfully feminist lens.

It's unlike anything you've seen before, so don't miss it when it screens at Lido!

Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However, her spells work too well, leaving her with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder.

With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the ‘60s, THE LOVE WITCH explores female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.
