Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Kozlowski handles the lead role winningly, playing Xander as a smarmy, selfish jerk with enough of a likable side to hold viewers’ interest without turning on the character. Trent plays the shy Roland wonderfully, and these two actors play off each other marvelously […] Fink and Land balance the humor and horror superbly, and Bad Witch delivers some dynamite practical gore effects.” Horror Fuel

“The horror elements start off strongly enough before taking a back seat to the humour. Bad Witch treats its craft as something for chuckles, including a great scene with a voodoo doll […] Overall an enjoyable blend of laughs and darkness…” Voices from the Balcony

Release date:

In the USA, Gravitas Ventures will release Bad Witch on Blu-ray and DVD on April 27th 2021.
