We're on to another month of Halloween with Wandering Through the Shelves! This week's theme is witches/warlocks. I went with witches because it's easier, and I tried not to use Harry Potter films even though it was so tempting.
1) The Witch
Thomasin is a young woman whose family accuses her of being a witch. This film is a bit slow, but it's so wonderfully creepy and ends on a perfect note.
This fancy ballet school may or may not be run by witches. It's gory and has one of the best sound tracks in any horror film. Thinking about it makes me want to rewatch it immediately.
3) Sleep Hollow
A witch summons the Headless Horseman. This movie felt really salacious to me when it first came out. I think I was 12 when I saw it, and it was just strangely sexy. Maybe because Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci are so good looking. There was nothing overly scandalous about it.
