Reviews of the The Witch Who Came from the SeaA disturbed woman (Millie Perkins, best known for "Diary of Anne Frank") is haunted by memories of childhood abuse, which culminates in a murder spree.
The script came from Robert Thom, who wrote it for his then-wife Millie Perkins, though much was cut before it got to shooting because it would have run over four hours. Thom was already something of a legendary writer, coming out of AIP with "Death Race 2000" and "Wild in the Streets" (among others) under his belt. Interestingly, by the time the film was released, Thom and Perkins were separate, and Perkins was dating Jack Nicholson (another AIP alumnus).
Whether it was original in Thom's script or not, director Matt Cimber said "the MPAA almost had a hemorrhage when they saw this" because of the subject matter of child molestation, a taboo topic ever since Fritz Lang's "M" (1931). Cuts had to be made just to get the film an R, including blood spurts (and have unfortunately not been restored).
From the opening shots, this film is reminiscent of "Night Tide" (1961). Was this intentional? Probably not, and more likely they just both have that feel because they are horror films that revolve around sailors and the sea. The actual plots share almost nothing.
In retrospect, the most amazing thing about this film is that the cinematographer was Dean Cundey. At the time, he was just another cameraman, but within a few years he would be well-known as John Carpenter's go-to guy, and after that go on to bigger and better things with the likes of Steven Spielberg. Is his talent evident here?
Interestingly, this film is a "video nasty" that is actually quite good, unlike many on the list. One critic viewed the film as not being a horror film but actually representing a scathing indictment of child sexual abuse as well as a study of a troubled woman's descent into madness; "a study of a woman whose sanity teeters on the edge". While this is a great sentiment, it is still a horror film -- but perhaps a horror film with a deeper meaning than the average movie.
Arrow Video has gone to the ends of the earth to find the best elements possible to restore the film to glory. They also have a few special features, including an audio commentary with Dean Cundey, Matt Cimber and Millie Perkins. For some reason, it seems to have been recorded in a bathroom or echo chamber, but still fascinating just the same. In my estimation, Cundey is one of the all-time greats, and getting him on record is always wonderful.
