Maverick director Alex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus) is back with his latest bout of cinematic insanity, Witching and Bitching, about a gang of jewel thieves who run afoul of a coven of witches. As you can see from this CraveOnline Exclusive preview of the film's first five minutes, it's probably going to be another fun one.
Watch as a gang of griping cosplay criminals jack a Cash for Gold store in broad daylight, and are unexpectedly forced to defend their parenting skills, and then go see the rest of this crazy horror-comedy when Witching and Bitching hits theaters and VOD on June 13, 2014.
From the Press Release:
When a bank heist in the city doesn’t all go according to plan, José and Tony find themselves in possession of some hostages and speeding through the mountains of Spain, hoping to quietly slip over the border. Not wanting to give up his custody days to his ex-wife, José has also brought his son along, for both the robbery and the ride. Little do they know that this is only the beginning of their troubles. When they decide to make a stop in a small tavern in the Basque countryside, the group encounters a series of local wackos. Falling victim to a mysterious spell, they soon find themselves the honored guests of a fractured family of witches who are preparing for an ancient ritual. More colorful characters begin to enter the picture, including a pair of hapless cops hot on the trail, a defecting vixen witch and José’s controlling ex-wife, and the situation spirals further out of control, heading towards a jaw-dropping climax.
From its opening moments involving a shootout between a series of street performers in costume (including Minnie Mouse, the Invisible Man and Jesus), it’s clear that acclaimed filmmaker Alex de la Iglesia is in top form here. Capturing all the wit of his previous films such as The Last Circus and The Oxford Murders, but employing a much more streamlined energy, Iglesia serves up the laughs, action and thrills in spades. Creative effects and frenetic, tongue-in-cheek jokes make for a visually inventive comedy with plenty of scares and surprises along the way. So grab your iron dentures and sharpened utensils. Dinner is served.
