Virgin Witch (1972)

Director: Ray Austin

Starring: Ann Michelle, Vickie Michelle, Keith Buckley

More info: IMDb

Tagline: She'll take you on -- and turn you on!

Plot: Christine gets her big chance at modelling when she applies at Sybil Waite's agency. Together with Christine's sister Betty they go to a castle for the weekend for a photo shoot. Sybil has lured Christine to the castle for more than modelling: she is recruiting a virgin for induction into a witch's coven, led by the owner of the castle, Gerald. To their surprise, Christine is more than eager to join the coven, but begins her own secret battle for control.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again?

#28 of 31 Days of Horror 2010.
#86 on Drive-In Delirium Volume 2 (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT

Yawn. A large gathering of friends on 10/30 for an all night horror movie marathon chose this one after seeing the trailer earlier in the evening. Some things are better left to the imagination. Woof. If it weren't for our constant ripping on the picture it would have certainly put me to sleep. The story's OK, the performances are fine, the music's...well...there's music, there's a TON of nudity (just watch the first 30 seconds of the opening credits above) and a bit of gore. The problem is it's sooooooo fucking slow.

I can only take so much. I don't mind nudity for nudity's sake sometimes but here's an instance where it actually helps that there's so much of it. Without it, it'd be a total snoozefest. It's one of the duller Eurosleaze sofcore horror films from the early 70s. So where does the horror portion come in? Right here...

Did I mention the plethora of naked women?
