Details

Originally released in 1966, The Witches is an unforgettably chilling pastoral horror from the legendary Hammer Films studio. Adapted for the screen by Nigel Kneale (The Quatermass Xperiment) it also stars Joan Fontaine (RebeccaSuspicion) in her last major film role. 

Gwen Mayfield, an English schoolteacher working as an African missionary, suddenly finds herself being victimized by local witch doctors. Exposed to the deadly powers of the occult, she's left deeply traumatized. In an effort to recover, Gwen takes up a position in a rural school within the British countryside. But the idyllic village surroundings become increasingly sinister as Gwen begins to uncover a nightmarish web of dark and satanic secrets.
