You won't find a trio of witches sexier than this! Susan Sarandon, Cher, and Michelle Pfeiffer star in this film about a bewitching group of black-magic women who are all seduced by the same Devilish man (played by Jack Nicholson, of course). It's a little bit sexy and a little bit gross, and while it's not the best film on this list, it's still fun to watch.

This silent 1922 film is a very bizarre look at witchcraft. It almost has the feel of a documentary to it, but you know that the events the film portrays can't possibly be actually happening. It has become a cult classic because of all of the strange scenes portrayed (including some with nudity, torture, and sexual perversion) and extremely good special effects for its time. The Criterion collection currently has a DVD of the film available that features a restored print of the original version of the film along with the midnight movie edit of the film from 1968 narrated by William S. Burroughs (the writer of 'Naked Lunch'.) It's a very interesting film, and it's a must-see for any hardcore movie lover or film student.

The Harry Potter films


)
These films currently are and will continue to be some of the most beloved movies about witches ever. The Harry Potter books have definitely cast a spell over children and adults alike all over the world, and the movies are just as magical. For a great Harry Potter themed children's Halloween party, just pop in a few of the films and serve up some classic Halloween treats like caramel covered apples and popcorn balls, along with some of the Harry Potter candy line. By showing the films all night, you'll be casting a magical spell over the kids that will make your job as party hostess a lot easier.

Nicole Kidman has never looked more betwitching than she has in this film, and Sandra Bullock definitely doesn't look too shabby, either. The two sisters they play in this film and all of their family members have long been plagued by a terrible curse: any man who falls in love with them will die tragically. The film is full of crazy magic spells and curses, along with suspicious townspeople and even the undead. But despite all of the trouble these witches go through, like all romantic comedies, this one has a happy ending.

This 1977 horror film is one of the most notorious witch movies ever made, and the last produced in Technicolor. But the mood of the film is not colorful at all. It's about a group of girls who attend a dance academy that they soon discover is much more than it seems. As dance students begin to die in horrible and mysterious ways and bizarre occurrences (like maggots raining from the ceiling) begin to happen at the school, some of the girls become increasingly fearful of what is exactly going on there. On student discovers that the school was once a school of the occult and a witch's coven, and it seems that it might still be so. The film is full of blood and violence and is definitely not for everyone, although many consider it to be the best witch movie ever made. So, of course, a remake is in the works.

This somewhat spooky family film is based on the book by beloved children's author Ronald Dahl. The witches in this film are terrifying to children, because their whole goal seems to be to rid the world of them (not by killing them, but by turning them into mice). A young boy learns of their plot when he stumbles into one of their gatherings at a hotel and must figure out how to stop them. This film really scared me as a child, although what disturbed me most was the portrayal of the witches/mice being stomped on and killed. I know the mice were supposed to be 'the bad guys', but the scene still bothered me, and this film may not be suitable for all children.

This teen film about female witches is definitely not upbeat, funny, or happy. It's about a group of teenage girls who are misfits at their school and discover that they can use the power of witchcraft to put curses on their enemies. A newcomer to the group soon discovers that the ability to use the witchcraft has gone to all of the girls' heads, and they are starting to abuse it in dangerous ways. So she, of course, has to find out how to stop them. The film had an impact on gothic style and stirred an interest in the Wicca religion with teens for a while, and it is a very interesting look at teen culture in a very different way.

Black Sunday (1960)


This 1960 film is about a vampire witch who comes back from the dead. She is played by the beautiful and unique Barbara Steele, who has dual roles in the film as the witch and a princess she wants to drain of her blood to gain immortality. It's an artistic film with great photography, and a must-see of lovers of the classic horror genre.

This 'mockumentary' was one of the most acclaimed independent films of our time because of its originality. The film relies on its realism, shaky camera footage, and a few bizarre findings of three student filmmakers searching the woods for evidence of the Blair Witch to produce scares, and while the audience never sees the Blair Witch or learns the fate of the students, the film definitely frightened audiences in a way they hadn't been before. Some filmgoers loved it, others hated it, and some couldn't make it through the whole film because the shaky camera work made them physically ill, but the film was at least refreshing and different, and is the most successful independent film ever.

This is another witch film that stars a beautiful actress, though it's definitely not as dark as the one above. The beautiful Veronica Lake stars as a centuries-old witch out for revenge against the ancestors of the man responsible for her burning at the stake. Her spirit manages to gain a human form, but she ultimately ends up falling for the man she is out to torment with very crazy results. Veronica Lake is simply stunning as always, and the film does have a pretty unique plot.

If you're planning on dressing as a witch this Halloween, perhaps some of these great films can inspire you to come up with a unique and different take on the classic black pointy hat and wart on the end of the nose. Whether you like your witches fun, funny, sexy, or frightening, there's sure to be a film about witches on this list that will cast a spell on you.
