13 Spellbinding Witchy Movies You Have to See!

Gone are the days where witches are being portrayed as green mean evil villains and monsters to be destroyed. The times have changed and so as the portrayal of witches and witchcraft. More Witch-centric movies and tv shows portray witches as a symbol or feminine power and freedom. Isn't it beautiful to be alive and witness that witches and witchcraft are being respected the way it should be?
Relive some old witchy movies and discover the more recent ones with the list we conjured for you! Sit back, relax, grab a cup of witches' brew and enjoy!

1. Hocus Pocus (1993)

This movie is probably in everyone's Halloween movie list! This iconic Sanderson Sisters will put a spell on you and leave you hooked. This movie when it came out didn't really gain much appreciation, but it has come a long way. It has become a cult favorite and it's a tradition to watch it on every TV on Halloween!

2. The Wizard of Oz (1939)

No one can compile a list of witchy movies and leave out The Wizard of Oz. This movie has been a part of all our childhood! Glinda, The Good Witch, and the mean, green Wicked Witch of the West. The green face, pointy hate and nose, and high-pitched cackling were imprinted in our mind as to how witches are supposed to look like.

3. The Witches of Eastwick (1987)

When there's a witch in the west, then here are the witches of Eastwick. Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer and Cher star in this dark-fantasy comedy film. A story of three friends recovering from the loss of loved ones and discovering their abilities as witches with the help of a mysterious enigmatic man. The witches went from reserved townsfolk to self-fulfilling individuals.

4. Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)

Kiki's Delivery Service is based on the 1985 novel of the same name written by Eiko Kadono, directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Kiki, the 13-year-old witch and her familiar Jiji embark on her journey of becoming an adult. Mind you she does this riding on a BROOMSTICK! This movie may be cute, but it talks about growing up and having independence. If you need some inspiration and a little self-confidence boost, Kiki's Delivery Service is the movie for you!

5. Practical Magic (1998)

If you're looking for a romcom witchy movie then Practical Magic is the movie for you. Before being known as the lady from Bird Box, Sandra Bullock together with Nicole Kidman were witch sisters standing up (the witchy way) against an oppressive man. If you want a great movie to watch with your sister or bestie, this movie is for you. An enchanting movie celebrating sisterhood!

6. The Love Witch (2016)

Even though this movie came out in 2016 the story's set in a very cool retro era. The story follows the story of a beautiful, narcissistic young sorceress named Elaine in her search for a replacement for her murdered husband (hilariously named "Jerry"). Being a love witch Elaine crafts love potions and has strong erotic powers. Talk about a witch with a hold of her femininity! If you are fond of crafting potions or want to become the baddest love witch, give this movie a go!

7. The Witches (1990)

This grotesque "kids movie" we think is way too dark for its demographic. The moment The Grand High Witch removed her human disguise we gagged and shrieked in horror. This movie will definitely teach kids not to talk to strangers!

8. Suspiria (1977)

The original Suspiria came out in 1977 and was remade last year starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Chloë Moretz. The original movie follows the story of a ballerina student named Susie in a prestigious European dance school that is actually comprised of a murderous coven of witches.

9. Inferno (1980)

A sequel to Suspiria, Inferno is about a brother and sister that get inadvertently involved in a world of witchcraft and alchemy. Aside from the eye-popping colors and the amazing direction by Dario Argento (the same director for Suspiria), the film's story is truly worth to be on your to-watch list. Also here's a spoiler: CATS. Cute ones!

10. Stardust (2007)

A fantasy adventure movie portraying witches as flesh-eating evil villains! Another film where Michelle Pfeiffer stars as a witch that's after a girl's heart that could give her and her sisters' eternal youth. Leave it to Pfeiffer to give justice to a vampy sorceress on a mission!

11. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)

The White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia is evil to the core. A merciless, cruel, and power hungry witch claiming the throne of Narnia. Instead of magickal spells and rituals, the white witch has a golden wand she uses to turn living things into stone. Scary!

12. Night of the Eagle (1962)

If you are looking for horror and voodoo magic then Night of the Eagle is a movie you should see. A successful college professor discovered that his wife has been practicing witchcraft to help with his career and after that everything went down straight to hell. Literally! We would love to elaborate, but we'd love for you to discover how things go down (pun intended)!

13. The Craft (1996)

Four high school girls coming together to harness the power of the 'creator' Manon. Sarah, Nancy, Bonnie, and Rochelle formed a coven and practiced witchcraft. Conjuring spells and curses against those who anger them! In this movie, the girls experience internal struggle whether to do good or be consumed by evil. A yummy 90's nostalgia treat!
