THE WITCH WHO CAME FROM THE SEA (1976)

As titles go, this is the kind of thing that I usually expect to be misleading. It’s a little over the top sounding, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t contain a single witch or any salt water at all. It’s also one of those which falls under the once dramatic sounding video nasties label, so again it’s unlikely that it contains any content to warrant such as status. Two out of three isn’t bad going, and while this is the story of a troubled ship captain’s daughter, there’s no black magic involved and the amount of adult rated material is quite tame. So what are we left with? Well overall this is another one of those stories about traumatic past experiences pushing someone to commit terrible acts. It’s a well trodden path. How it stacks up against other tales of this sort will take some closer examination.
