TWO WITCHES WILL DEBUT ON ARROW 17TH OCTOBER
If you’re a horror fan after a fright fix, this is just the ticket. There’s a killer pre-credits shock, followed by a devilishly unsettling scene set in a restaurant… but eight minutes in and you’d better buckle up, as things get REALLY scary… after that, you’re on your own!
The debut feature from writer/director Pierre Tsigaridis and executive producer/writer Maxime Rancon is a stylish, creepy and brilliantly inventive horror with genuine jolts as well as a hefty dose of jet-black humour, and some unexpected moments of sheer gruesomeness.
A delirious mix of Rosemary’s Baby, Hereditary and Drag Me To Hell – with a cheeky nod to The Blair Witch Project – the film features two witch stories interlinked by the incredible Rebekah Kennedy (To The Bone), here the spitting image of genre icon Lynn Lowry, a troubled woman with a dark secret. Also starring Kristina Klebe (Halloween), Tim Fox (Westworld) and Belle Adams (Perry Mason), the film’s a wild ride of ouija boards, witches and very weird roommates.
Synopsis: With its super-saturated colour palette, tenebrous art design and electrifying soundtrack, Two Witches presents two truly terrifying conjoined tales of witchery, paranoia and terror that hark back to the gory thrills of classic Euro horrors such as Suspiria, Shock and The Beyond.
Expectant young mother Sarah is convinced she has been given the evil eye from a mysterious blank-eyed old hag while she is dining with her bullish and insensitive partner Simon. When the couple go to visit his new-agey friends Dustin and Melissa, dark forces are unleashed after an ill-advised attempt at consulting a Ouija board to allay her fears. Meanwhile, tensions grow between grad school student Rachel and her new roommate Masha after a violent incident involving a man that the strange and impulsive young woman has brought home.
First-time feature director Pierre Tsigaridis, who also shot, edited and contributed to the film’s soundtrack, singles himself out as one to watch in a deft and unnerving depiction of unspeakable evil that truly delivers.
