MOLLY REALLY KNOWS HOW TO CUT MEN DOWN TO SIZE!!!
Representing something of an anomaly in the career of director Matt Cimber (whose other credits include such blaxploitation fare as The Candy Tangerine Man) The Witch Who Came from the Sea is an unnerving journey into madness and murder starring Millie Perkins (The Diary of Anne Frank).
Molly (Perkins) experiences violent fantasies in which she ties muscular men up before bloodily dispatching them with a razor. But when a news report announces the shocking double-murder of two football players which strongly echoes one of Molly s most recent depraved flights of fancy, the fantasy starts to bleed into reality literally.
Written by Perkins late husband Robert Thom (Death Race 2000), The Witch Who Came from the Sea features early cinematography from DOP Dean Cundey, who would go on to expand his genre credentials with his work on Escape from New York and The Thing.

I had to double check the name Millie Perkins as it is claimed that she starred in the 1959 production of 'The Diary of Anne Frank,' which is true.
In this film Molly has some personal demons that gradually come out as the film plays along. She hits the bottle hard and pops some pills as she attempts to deny being the childhood victim of her sexually abusive father.
She occasionally has fantasies about various men that feature in TV advertisements but treads a fine line between reality, imagination and bad dreams.
Millie's character Molly reminded me of the woman that played the 'Nutcracker' in Alex De Renzy's 1977 glorious XXX rated 'BabyFace.' Actually, that person was played by Molly Seagrim, i.e. barking mad but fun to watch.
I had never heard of Matt Cimber before as a director but it appears that he was married to the sex bomb Jayne Mansfield and directed the film 'Butterfly' (1982) with Stacy Keach and Pia Zadora. It comes as no surprise however to discover that Matt Cimber has a history of making sex films and documentaries in his early career.
The film is released in HD so the quality is much better than the general standard of film quality from this era.
The film tells the story of Molly, and woman who fantazies over body-buliders,football stars and TV celebrities who's fanatsies turn violent, especialy with the use of razor-blades on a certain part of the male anatomy! But when bodies are found castrated and murdered are they simply just fantasies?
It does have have much in common with Roman Polanski's 'Repulison', and there is some extremely distubing flashbacks to Molly's abused childhood at the hands of her sea-faring father (something she has blanked from her mind)which is at the root of her pychosis.
Not as violent or shocking as it would be believed by it's censorship history, the film does feel a little dated in a early seventies way (despite the year of it being made listed as 1976?). It's the performances that as the real winner here, there is no over-acting here with the exception of a sequence where a starlet shoots up the car of her cheating lover (don't ask!)
Certainly it's a curiosity, but one well worth a look if you like horror movies or thrillers with a psychological aproach or simiply just viewed as an off-beat movie, it's well worth a look.
A very strange offbeat psychological drama not a horror as the cover/title and films reputation would have you believe. Millie Perkins gives a terrific performance as Molly, from the very beginning she gives her a real edge with a haunting look and a real vulnerability, but then suddenly a sharp turn into violence, other performances in the film are good but never reach Perkins level. Seasoned director Cimber takes the viewer on a journey throughout the film, from Molly's slips into madness to some near art-house scenes near the end of the film, he does this with some skill, although his direction and some of the writing has it's issues, the plot does tend to wonder and fall into some I felt a little pointless chatter. This was put onto the video nasty list in 1984 however there is only 1 real violent scene where Molly cuts her lover with a razor in the bathroom, there is another scene at the beginning where she castrates a man but you see nothing graphic or violent it's all done off screen. There are some shocking scenes though. particularly when Molly's father is sexually abusing her in flashback scenes, these for me were some of the most explicit incest scenes I've ever experienced in a film, and this also could explain its presence on the list.
Overall a competent film that never deserved any of the attention it got, Perkins is the standout aspect and probably the reason to see the film just don't look at the misleading cover and expect a horror movie you'll be bitterly disappointed.
