    Berbarian Sound Studio is so great. It somehow works both as a loving homage to 70’s Italian horror for people who like it and a savage attack on it for people, like me, who mostly hate it.

    Apart from the gender stereotype issues (and I know that’s a big ‘apart from’ to ask) isn’t The Witches also in some ways about ‘Othering’ and bullying. The daughter is systematically blamed, shamed, bullied and othered by her entire family. The father is shamed and bullied by his wife and the entire family were shamed bullied and othered by their community, ostracized and forced into exile. The daughter’s ‘Witch’ persona is both a manifestation, and a self- generated reappropriation and a reclaiming of that otherness. The final scene, if taken as metaphor, is the outsider fantasy of rescue by ‘one’s own people’
