Season Of The Witch (Romero, 1972)

"Caviar in the kitchen, nothing in the bedroom."

Released under a host of titles - Hungry Wives, Jack's Wife (Romero's preferred title), and finally Season of the Witch - Romero's "lost" film, made in between Night of the Living Dead and The Crazies, is a stunner. More sociological examination than pure horror film, it is both a fascinating time capsule and an interesting comment on marital relations and the suburban female psyche.

Film Rating: B+/B
