Alex de la Iglesia, Spain’s most prominent black comedy helmer, premiered his horror comedy Witching and Bitching (Las Brujas de Zugarramurdi) at this past September’s Toronto Film Festival. Still seeking U.S. distribution, we’ve landed a red band trailer for the festival fav that looks absolutely bonkers!
“The pic turns on a robber band trying to flee to France after purloining 25,000 gold rings from a Spanish city. A curse falls on them and they fall into the clutches of the witches of the Navarrese town of Zugarramurdi.”
Witching‘s ensemble cast boasts some of Spain’s biggest film and TV stars, such as Mario Casas (“I Want You”), Hugo Silva (“Sex, Parties and Lies”) and Carmen Maura, who earned a best actress award at San Sebastian in 2000 for her role in “Commonwealth.” Further cast members are Terele Pavez, Carolina Bang, Secun de la Rosa, Pepon Nieto and Jaime Ordonez.
