We've been keeping you up-to-date on director Alex de la Iglesia's WITCHING & BITCHING, a new horror-comedy that looks completely batshit insane. We learned that IFC Midnight had scooped up the North American rights to this fun-looking flick back in December of last year and now the film, which closed out TIFFs Midnight Madness last year, is headed to theaters and VOD on June 13. About time! I can't wait to check this one out!
Below you'll find the new U.S. trailer for WITCHING & BITCHING which continues to sell me on catching this one as soon as it hits theaters/VOD. The films ensemble cast boasts some of Spain’s biggest film and TV stars, such as Mario Casas, Hugo Silva, Carmen Maura, Terele Pavez, Carolina Bang, Secun de la Rosa, Pepon Nieto and Jaime Ordonez.
“When a bank heist in the city doesn’t all go according to plan, José and Tony find themselves in possession of some hostages and speeding through the mountains of Spain, hoping to quietly slip over the border. Not wanting to give up his custody days to his ex-wife, José has also brought his son along, for both the robbery and the ride. Little do they know that this is only the beginning of their troubles. When they decide to make a stop in a small tavern in the Basque countryside, the group encounters a series of local wackos. Falling victim to a mysterious spell, they soon find themselves the honored guests of a fractured family of witches who are preparing for an ancient ritual. More colorful characters begin to enter the picture, including a pair of hapless cops hot on the trail, a defecting vixen witch and José’s controlling ex-wife, and the situation spirals further out of control, heading towards a jaw-dropping climax.”
Look for WITCHING & BITCHING in theaters and on VOD June 13.
