We handpicked those movies by considering popularity, cast performances, and IMDb ratings of films. The historical significance and reviews of cinema professionals are also considered. All the films are horror-theme scary witch movies.

As usual, we will make some introduction about witchcraft and witches.



Witchcraft and Witches

Witchcraft is generally called the practice of people who are believed to have supernatural powers and use these powers for their own benefit. They are depicted badly in many religions and mythical narratives. Belief in witchcraft often takes place in communities and groups which have a magical worldview in their cultural framework. The concepts of witchcraft and witches have undergone semantic transformations over time. Therefore, it is difficult to define the witchcraft and witches.

Among the supernatural practices that are generally believed to be made by witches are spell casting, necromancy, and cursing. Some argue that witchcraft is differentiated from wizardry in a sense that the former is associated with demonic applications and satanic cults. In Islam and Christianity, wizardry is also associated with heresy, apostasy and satanic actions.

Contrary to all the alleged statements, there is something we know for sure. Control of lone women in the community with witchcraft accusations (!).


Suspiria (2018) is a horror-art movie about witches and witchcraft.
