Director Alex de la Iglesia‘s Witching and Bitching (2013) is about to get its DVD release this October 14, 2014 via IFC Midnight. Also check out the cover art for the new horror DVD. Witching and Bitching stars Hugo Silva, Mario Casas, Pepon Nieto, Carolina Bang, Terele Pavez and Jaime Ordonez. I have to honestly say that I also enjoyed this horror film.
When a bank heist in the city doesn’t all go according to plan, Jose and Tony find themselves in possession of some hostages and speeding through the mountains of Spain, hoping to quietly slip over the border. Not wanting to give up his custody days to his ex-wife, Jose has also brought his son along for both the robbery and the ride. Little do they know that this is only the beginning of their troubles, as they soon make a stop in a small tavern in the Basque countryside and find themselves the honored guests of a fractured family of witches who are preparing for an ancient ritual. With WITCHING AND BITCHING, cult director Alex de la Iglesia (As Luck Would Have It, The Last Circus) serves up nervous laughs, action and thrills in this visually inventive comedy that builds toward a jaw-dropping climax with plenty of scares and surprises along the way. It’s "a swift, dark and nasty horror comedy that occasionally dances into territory deemed taboo by American filmmakers" (Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald) - as well as "entertaining as hell from beginning to end" (Patrick Cooper, Bloody Disgusting).
