Since we are talking about witches, iamROGUE took a look back in history to find the Top 10 Witch Flicks! They don’t have to be scary and they don’t have to be nice, just a look back at some of Hollywood’s best and brightest when it comes to witches.
See part one of our list here! And now, part two of the top 10 witch flicks!
5. The Witches of Eastwick (1987)
What’s not to like? You have three of the most intriguingly beautiful women in film as a trio of powerful witches! Michelle Pfeiffer, Susan Sarandon and Cher were fantastic opposite Jack Nicholson’s devilish lead. This inventive little film inspired some wonderfully wild performances and a imaginative look. You could even call it magical!
4. Black Sunday (1960)
Horror legend Barbara Steele gets all witchy and evil as she brings vengeance from beyond the grave. This classic black and white feature is loaded with atmosphere and it features one hell of a lead performance thanks to Steele. This old school shocker stands the test of time and in many ways, it is helped by the black and white photography. This is an absolute classic if you’ve not witnessed it yet.
3. Suspiria (1977)
Dario Argento’s dreamlike nightmare takes place in a dance academy. Yet things are not what they seem. When Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives at a famous ballet school, dark and evil things begin to happen. This is a wildly colorful and sometimes odd horror feature that is stylish and scary at the same time. You’d be hard pressed to find a scene as horrifying as the opening murder here.
2. Harry Potter Franchise
This beloved series has made Hogwarts a name that won’t be forgotten. The power of these films is the fact that they use the same cast, get talented directors, and gives the effects and the characters equal time. And from what we are hearing, The Deathly Hallows may be one of the best films in the series. With word of mouth this strong, it looks like we will most definitely have another huge Harry Potter movie on our hands when it hits theatres this coming Friday!
1. The Wizard of Oz (1939)
There is no way in the world that The Wizard of Oz wouldn’t be number one. This is one of those films that are truly magical. When it was made back in 1939 (the same year as Gone with The Wind), who would have known what a cultural impact it would have. There probably wouldn’t even be half of these movies without the magical adventures of Dorothy and the gang. And seriously, which of you hasn’t broken out into “Somewhere over the Rainbow” at some point? A fantastic and unmatchable classic that still offers awe-inspired beauty!
What is your pick for number 1?
