The Witch Who Came From The Sea
Double Feature: Female Vengeance • Horror, Thriller
Molly really knows how to cut men down to size. Representing something of an anomaly in the career of director Matt Cimber (whose other credits include such blaxploitation fare as The Candy Tangerine Man) The Witch Who Came from the Sea is an unnerving journey into madness and murder starring Millie Perkins (The Diary of Anne Frank). Molly (Perkins) experiences violent fantasies in which she ties up muscular men up before bloodily dispatching them with a razor. But when a news report announces the shocking double-murder of two footballers which strongly echoes one of Molly’s most recent depraved flights of fancy, the fantasy starts to bleed into reality – literally. Written by Perkins’ late husband Robert Thom (Death Race 2000), The Witch Who Came from the Sea features early cinematography from DOP Dean Cundey, who would go on to expand his genre credentials with his work on Escape from New York and The Thing, before achieving mainstream exposure with the likes of Jurassic Park and Apollo 13.
