4.0 out of 5 stars Shocking, but intelligent cult classic., 2 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Witch Who Came From the Sea [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Being banned here in the UK in 1984 under the Video Recordings Act and being placed on the infmous 'Video Nasties' list it seems unfair that this film has langusied in obsurity for so long. Only relesed on DVD last year in the US and still (of this writing) unavalibe in the UK it really is a shame that this film remains unknown.
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.
