Witching & Bitching is the latest film from SpanishÁlex de la Iglesia. If the name doesn’t ring a bell yet, then no sweat because my feeling is he’s just starting to make a name for himself in North America, even if his best films are always in Spanish. My favorite by far from his collection is The Last Circus, and it’s fair to say that Iglesia has a thing for cosplay now since his new comedy features Jesus and a green foot solider in a jewelry heist that will lead them into trouble with witches. Sorry, no crazy clowns in this one, or a least none appear in the official trailer above.
The film itself looks insane, and it should because this is what Iglesia is going for. If you’re looking for something unconventional with lots of weirdness, then this might be it, folks.
Check out the trailer!
