Abnormal psychology 101 ..........
12 August 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

This is a strange one, that just misses the mark because the script is somewhat scatter shot. If things regarding the delusional and irrational behavior of incest victim Millie Perkins had been more focused, the film would have benefited. As it is, the acting by Ms Perkins is convincing, and for a horror / psychological drama most of the acting is above average. The horror crowd will be disappointed, but those looking for the offbeat, will have found gold, with this twisted tale of hallucinations and mutilations. Special mention must be made of the poster art, which is outstanding. "The Witch Who Came From the Sea" is a bizarre oddity that has a limited, but devoted cult following. - MERK
