Brujas de Zugarramurdi

Jesus Christ with a shotgun. A cave filled with riotous witches. Whatever that thing is that’s reaching out from the toilet. If there’s anyone carrying the torch for Alejandro Jodorowsky, it’s Alex De La Iglesia. The bizarre and wonderful director is back with a new action comedy that features a group of thieves being hunted by some vicious witches.

It’s getting called Witching and Bitching, but it’s original name, Las brujas de Zugarramurdi, is a million times better. Plus, Zugarramurdi is the site in northern Spain where the infamous Basque witch trials took place so it all fits. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition, so it’s a lot like De La Iglesia’s work.

Check out this hardcore trailer for yourself:

All hail this filmmaker’s mind. Las brujas de Zugarramurdi is in theaters in September.
