When your marriage has you on the brink and your bank account in red, it's time to rob a Cash-for-Gold shop. That's the last-ditch decision made by a group of desperate guys led by divorced dad JOSÉ. They make it out of the shop with a bag full of 25,000 gold wedding rings and flag down a cab. So do they run south to Morocco? Not easy getting through with a cab... Looks like it's north to France. The guys enter the impenetrable forests of Basque Country, home to ancient covens and witchery. They run head-on with a horde of crazed women who feed on human flesh. Trapped in a… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A swift, dark and nasty horror comedy that occasionally dances into territory deemed taboo by American filmmakers."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Projectile pukes its outrages at you with a gusto recalling the early days of those (sadly) reformed upchuckers Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson."
‑ Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"Witches, sight gags and a treatise on the battle of the sexes? Witching & Bitching gives you plenty to think about between the carnage."
‑ Christian Toto, HollywoodInToto.com
"Witching & Bitching is an overly bizarre film that does fit Alex de la Iglesia's repertoire, but at the same time pushes the boundaries of fun and outrageous which results in a ludicrous atmosphere."
‑ Chris Sawin, Examiner.com
"Witching & Bitching is a perfect example of how Video On Demand horror movies are making Hollywood's mainstream titles look like bargain bin garbage in comparison."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"The buddy comedy, gross-out humor and horror elements make for a harmonious mix."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
"Alex de la Iglesia has experimented with various genres down the years, but the shamelessly crowd-pleasing Witching and Bitching is a return to what he does best -- pure mayhem."
‑ Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter
"Alex de la Iglesia's horror-comedy Witching and Bitching lives up to the silliness of its title."
‑ Austin Trunick, Under the Radar
"It's warped, it's frantic, it's dark -- and it's an entertaining bit of guilty-pleasure, midnight-movie craziness"
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
""Witching and Bitching" is accordingly overlong, and conceptually thin. But like most of de la Iglesia's films, it's also freakishly energetic, and often hysterical."
‑ Simon Abrams, RogerEbert.com
"Plenty of movies sympathize with outcasts, but only De La Iglesia's sympathize with their ugliest feelings: envy, resentment, and self-loathing."
‑ Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club
"Not high art by any means, but it is pretty entertaining if you like a good slice of crazy horror-movie fun once in awhile."
‑ Kara Nesvig, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Right from its subversive opening sequence, the film establishes itself as a silly but sometimes hilarious farce."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"This madcap horror comedy is the typically insane genre gumbo that de la Iglesia regularly puts together for his fanbase, replete with religious blasphemy, slapstick comedy, bawdy sex and inspired, watery gore."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"A smorgasbord of broad comic and horror ideas."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
