Plot: Joan Mitchell (Jan White) is bored with her suburban existence. She is plagued by nightmares involving a man in a demon mask. With an uncommunicative teenage daughter and a husband who is always away on business, she searches for something to fill the void. She becomes intrigued by a practicing witch who lives in the neighborhood, and soon her interest in the black arts becomes more than casual. While learning her craft, she successfully tries a spell that allows her to seduce her daughter’s boyfriend. Soon, though, Joan becomes convinced that her husband is responsible for the unpleasantness in her life, and it isn’t long before her efforts turn murderous.

Romero’s third film (after NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and the little-seen THERE’S ALWAYS VANILLA) finds him in a distinctly experimental mode when compared to his other works. Though it relies on clear-cut horror elements (certain sequences are quite chilling), it frequently seems that the director was aiming more for the art house than the drive-in. Fans of Romero’s zombie films may be in for a shock upon their first viewing of SEASON OF THE WITCH, but the open-minded horror fan will find plenty to like
