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
"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
"A simple yet utterly bonkers battle of the sexes that chuckles at male chauvinism before castrating it completely."
‑ David Ehrlich, The Dissolve
"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
"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
"Full of weird and wonderful insanity, Witching and Bitching is the kind of wild ride you don't look away from. The insanity is magnetic."
‑ Neil Miller, Film School Rejects
"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
"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
"When de la Igesia is firing on all cylinders, he brings wonderful verve to the screen, always securing the entertainment value of the work while tinkering with its gruesome particulars. It's a wickedly funny movie."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"There's something admirable about a film-maker who throws caution to the wind and just runs with an idea. Even one that turns out to be utterly ridiculous."
‑ Garry McConnachie, Daily Record [UK]
