Some movie Witches are benevolent and use their powers for good, but in the Horror Genre, most tend to be wizened old crones who are out to kill or eat people, or even worse, take their souls. Most Witches serve Satan you see, so sacrifice is a big part of their daily lives.
- Not every movie on this list is about traditional Witches. Some involve Gypsies, some involve Voodoo, and some involve Cults. They're all variations on the same theme though.
- We included a couple of cheesy kid flicks in the Honorable Mention section, because we fondly remember growing up with them.
- We include Pumpkinhead here because Haggis is one of the coolest Witches that has ever been on-screen.
- Dario Argento's Three Mothers Trilogy (Suspiria, Inferno, and Mother of Tears) is a Must See for all Horror fans.
If you're in the mood for a truly quality Witch flick, any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. For our money, Suspiria and Black Sunday are probably the best of them, but then again they all bring their own unique and terrifying vision to the Witch Flick Sub-Genre, so why not just enjoy them all!
*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
