New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 10 Movie Witches to Hex Your Halloween

By Andrea Thompson

Halloween season is here, which means it’s the season of the witch. The witch has long been a part of our collective unconscious, mostly in our nightmares where she tended to be a convenient scapegoat. And she continues to be a part of our culture today, albeit in a more complicated fashion. Witches are still forces for evil, but they can also be heroines worth rooting for – anti-heroines who inspire equal amounts of compassion and fear, or forces for good who use their powers for benevolent ends. Below are ten of my favorite cinematic witches, which means that the Charmed sisters, Willow from Buffy, and sadly, Sabrina, don’t make the cut. Don’t hex me, ladies.
