Naturally, Witches aren’t quite new; the witch’s form has been a dark humanity attraction for centuries and a favorite of moviemakers and moviegoers from the beginning of movies. But its popularity goes on and on, and today, since the 90s heyday Sabrina, Willow, Nancy, and the Sanderson sisters, we’re in a bigger witch boom. And this article will deliver you an insight into the Top 20 Best Movies about Witches Ever Made!
Women have been the spearhead of the greatest storylines in TV, film, and real life. Therefore, we look at the most pernicious representation of female power in pop culture this Halloween season. When you’re a horror-case fan, more than you might have a stick, stake, silver bullet, or you may see vampires, widows, zombies, or serial murderers. A big witch film is really convincing because it is led by a person, a woman, who refuses to behave in the manner demanded by society. Here, the classic movie The Wizard of Oz is leading the list, which is best known for Billie Burke, a.k.a. Glinda the Good Witch, which made being wicked look like a lot of fun. Then it is followed by Rosemary’s Baby (1968) in second place and then Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989) in third place.

We have handpicked such Top 20 Best Movies about Witches Ever Made that you must watch. Let’s round them!
20. Lords of Salem
Okay, we realize that some of you may be furious, but, sorry, Salem’s Lords is fairly dangerous and excellent. This Rob Zombie’s dark and gloomy witch movie came just a bit before time and was mistaken by critics and spectators alike, but his flawed account of black magic and rock roll has a lot to appreciate. Unfortunately, the picture loses the narrative menace at the conclusion, but the graphics and atmosphere of Zombie’s most extraordinary picture are still rich with dark delights.
19. Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters
As the witch-hunting siblings, Gemma(Killing Eve) and Renner Arterton are opposed to the witch’s head Witch, the world-famous actress’ scenic chewing performance. Wirkola has been going from Dead Snow Nazi zombies to her realm of fairytale witches, preserving her sparkling pieces and funny genre attitude while presenting stunning witch designs (not to mention a lovely realistic troll portrayed by Derek Mears) and many badass actions. We’d have a better time frame for this blood-drenched action film, but for now, the least that we can do is to give this tiny eccentric treasure the recognition it deserves.
18. The Love Witch
After a lady has been escaping the California coastline inquiry into the strange murder of her husband in San Francisco, she resides in a flat in a gothic house that is designed to look like her favorite tarot. In this movie, she is pursuing one mind to improve love and desire of potion, with all the seduction only stopped in the odd killing. In addition to working as the editor, production designer, costume designer, and composer of The Love Witch, the author Anna Biller, who has carefully made this movie of the 1960s, has feminist satire, heavy on vintage glamour and sensuality.
17. Practical Magic
Have you ever thought how good humanity is that a film exists in which Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman (The Undoing) play eccentric contemporary sister witches? Well, for practical magic, thank Goddess. Mother Sally is restrained for her widows (Bullock), but on the other hand, Gillian (Kidman) is an enticing free spirit. The ladies have fled to the sleepy Massachusetts town, where they have grown up after killing Gillian’s violent lover Jimmy – Who’s a serial murderer, too, since the ultimate suspense of the movie.
16. The Craft
Take a solid and slip a copy of The Craft to your favorite 10th grader as the protagonist works on her encyclopedia essay. In the 1990s movie, horror flicks around the coven of students, and its dark brand of girl power are successfully maintained. And we mean darkness: not just the “Manon’s rituals” of the girls, but the film deals with serious problems such as suicide and rape. Robin Tunney is officially the major character as a plain white Sarah witch, and the sorceress sisters, Neve Campbell and Rachel True, both enjoy the charm of Bonnie and Rochelle.
15. The Blair Witch Project
|Director:||Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sánchez|
In a search for the bizarre older woman rumored to haunt the woods, the foreman of the found-footage genre accompanies three filmmakers who got lost in the Black Hills Forest. Let’s say they don’t finish well. With a viral marketing campaign, Blair Witch was appreciated, suggesting that the actors are missing and feared dead. But the movie is creepy as heck for all its parodies and overactive pop culture. This stated it would be a good idea to miss the sequels, and if you left them alone, it would be much preferable for folks from Burkittsville, Maryland.
14. The Witches of Eastwick
Three closest pals — Michelle Pfeiffer (I), Susan Sarandon (II), and Cher (III) – bind their ideal guy fantasies to the enigmatic, only for him to appear in the form of the mysterious, appealingly sinister Daryl Van Horne (Jack Nicholson). It’s a classical story: Boy meets the girl and boy seduces the sister girl, the boy meets the two females and seduces them. Boy, almost surely is the Devil.
13. Hocus Pocus
|Director:||Kenny Ortega (Julie and the phantoms)|
Hocus Pocus has become a cult’s iconic Halloween pillar in recent years, governing the airways as dominantly as in the December Christmas story. This is a great reason: it’s the perfect Halloween film for Halloween and a must-see for young witches. Three hundred years after their death, Sander’s Sisters—played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy—revived to destroy unwary Salem, Massachusetts tricks and treatment. Also in the mix is the age-old speaking cat that holds “I Put a Spell on You,” the soul of a kid captivated by his witches, 11-year-old Thora Birch, who is a zombie.
An American lady in Suspiria travels to Germany to enter a famous dancing institution, but the ballet school is a front for a disaster-filled coven. But it doesn’t matter, and it’s one of the gorgeous films you’ll ever see. Dario Argento’s lustrous Technicolor fever dream is still better combined with Goblin’s equally renowned rock album. Soon you’re going to watch this one: The new remake of Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Dakota Johnson, has been filmed by director Luca Guadagnino.
11. Bell, Book, and Candle
A Manhattanite witch places a love spell on the Kim Novak–Jimmy Stewart rom-com, so he’s not going to marry her obnoxious college adversary. But this method turns out to be great when the person coils his head over his broom, but heartfelt sorcerers lose their strength. Along with 1942’s Veronica Lake–starring I Married a Witch, Bell, Book, and Candle helped inspire the TV series Bewitched. It’s worth witnessing the performance of Jack Lemmon as a bongo player.
10. Black Sunday
Mario Bava’s influencing masterwork is widely censored in heavy yet black & white, following its premiere and prohibited in the United Kingdom. An old executed witch comes from the grave in a visual festival of castles, coffins, and gore, hell-bent on vengeance. Even now, the pictures are arrested, if not straight. It’s not a squeamish movie: The initial sequence is marked onto Barbara Steele’s head by a pinned mask, and afterward, the scorpions creep out her ugly half-preserved visage.
9. Mary and the Witch’s Flower
The first feature film by Studio Ghibli, Mary, and the Witch’s Flower, is a very enjoyable, lively adventure that follows a lovely, well-meaning little girl in the halls of a magical school in which preparations are being drawn up. Mary is your normal girl in a calm summer city until she stumbles on this wonderful Fly-by-night flower, which permeates her with amazing power. The picture’s plot has incredible wonders, and though it owes a great deal to the delivery service of its Ghibli precursor Kiki, there is only such a breathtaking sight in the lobes of the Endor college.
8. The Witch
This jewel of the A24 is a gradual burn with an end. In New England in the 17th era, after her infant brother is suddenly aborted, a family of religious exiles grows suspicious of their teenage daughter after her newborn brother is mysteriously abducted. It’s tough to say which idea in The Witch is more frightening to confront: the evil lurking in the dark woods or the paranoia and suspicion that seizes the secluded farmstead? Tell him we’re saying hey if you come across a goat named Black Phillip.
7. The Witches
The Witches is more distressing based on the Roald Dahl novel that is similar to the usual 90s film of this family, which is why it’s so fantastic. It tells children that any lady might indeed be a bruising — a bruise that plots your death right now. A small kid stumbles into a convention of killing and hating children who keep their rude heads and awful hands disguised by wigs and gloves (the work of Jim Henson’s Creation Store). The Grand High Witch Anjelica Huston speaks in an uncertain European accent and is hence unmistakably malevolent.
6. I Married a Witch
Veronica Lake is a temperamental and curious witch that rises on the stage after being burnt down in the 1940s and turns her sights to harass the offspring of a witch. This attractive comedian actress played Jennifer. Trouble is unintentionally falling in love with him after a series of pranks. This is an old Hollywood romance. I Married a witch is filled with a lot of fogginess and draped in lovely dresses and clothes for the film Icon. Essentially, it plays like a feature-long precursor to Bewitched, and it makes you a bit sorry about Lake’s lack of flighty, magnificent witches in her career.
5. Eve’s Bayou
Set in Louisiana in the 1960s and directed by Kasi Lemmons, this magnificent southern gothic drama is a dark meditation on family, mysticism, and sex. Eve (Jurnee Smollett) is a ten-year-old witness to her mother being cheated by her feminizing dad (The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard– Samuel L. Jackson). Following an incident of intoxicated violence, Eve looks for retribution on her aunt for fortune-telling — and after a hazily act of violence. That’s why it’s a must-watch witches movie.
4. Three Mothers Trilogy
Dario Argento brought us three of cinema’s most terrifying tales of magic with his celebrated Three Mothers trilogy, composed of Suspiria, Inferno, and Mother of Tears. The Three Mothers Trilogy started with the groundbreaking 1977 picture of Argento Suspiria, which broke expectations and swung to the fences, with candy-colored movies and memorable music from Goblin, combined with the ancient witches’ mythology the realm of covens. Next, it visited New York with Inferno in the 1980s, and we were taken to Rome in 2007 by the long-awaited third edition. Although the quality among films is inconsistent, the Argento trilogy remains one of the terrifying myths of magic in cinema for decades to come.
3. Kiki’s Delivery Service
This animated film from Hayao Miyazaki was one of the first films from Studio Ghibli, the famed Japanese anime powerhouse recognized for the enchantment and wonder that is full of audacious and adventurous youngsters. This child-friendly movie focuses on the thirteen-year-old witch Kiki, who leaves home with her “Familiar Spirit.” Kiki’s Delivery Service, apart from its magic capabilities, is a charming narrative about girls who learn to travel in the world and depend on themselves. Witches: Like us, they are!
2. Rosemary’s Baby
The only movie in this list you may find in the Criterion Collection is Roman Polanski’s adaptation of the novel by Ira Levin. Yet, the posh pedigree of the horror movie makes it no less viscerally troubled. With the help of her spouse, Devil worshipping Ghuls coven occupies the building of an apartment on the Upper West Side and conspires to have Satan himself raped and imbued with a young lady Rosemary (Mia Farrow). Four of the five obstetricians believe that the frightening lady should not allow prenatal ‘vitamin drinks,’ especially if your unborn kid is unlikely to be the Antichrist.
1. The Wizard of Oz
A clear decision, but with good cause. No cinema spellcaster is more legendary than Margaret Hamilton’s wicked brand of the West, which caused her to wear green makeup containing deadly copper oxide resulting from a second and third-grade brand. Hamilton (who, by the way, was over two decades younger than Billie Burke, known as Glinda The Good Witch), even though all that hardship, made it appear wicked like a lot of fun. But we have virtually never enjoyed this view of evil: the West’s Wicked witch in the L. In which she is brimless, ungreen, Frank Baum’s stories is a small character as also portrayed in the 1939’s The Wizard of Oz. It is one of the best witches movies ever made.
However, it is their range of tones and meanings that make witches’ movies intriguing. Whether you are in Hocus Pocus’s fun-for-all-ages looks or Black Sunday’s blood-sparking charms, there’s a pointed hat and broomstick someplace around you that will fit well.
