Season of the Witch (1973)

George A Romero directs Jan White, Raymond Laine and Anne Muffly in this low budget supernatural drama where a put-upon housewife explores witchcraft and sex during a moment of crisis.

Boring. A few trippy dream sequences aside, this takes an age to get going and then only offers queasy rolling around on the carpet with zero nudity and the occasional reference to Wiccan practices. If you rocked up to your local grindhouse fleapit expecting sleaze, violence or even magicking then you’d be very, very disappointed. Can be approached as a feminist drama but one so dated and outmoded there proves little value there either.
