The 7 Best Witchy Movies & TV Shows to Watch This Season, as Rated by a Real Witch

Peg Aloi

Are you a witch? Girl, same. Witchcraft has become a huge trend across social media in recent years. Witchcraft gets more mainstream by the day, but it wasn’t always so. If you draw a line from the European witch craze, to the Salem Witch Trials (we still use terms like “witch hunt” and “hysteria” too much for my liking), to the modern occult revival in the 1960s (when witches were part of the women’s liberation and environmental movements), to the Wicca of the “New Age” 1980s, to the Satanic Panic of the 1990s, we see that witches have always been outsiders. Nowadays, witchcraft is aligned with self-care, identity, social change, personal empowerment, and getting closer to nature. Not to mention magic, tarot, astrology, spells, crystals, and herbcraft.

Hallowe’en is nigh, and we all know what that means: sweater weather, cider, seasonal angst, and watching as many horror movies as possible. But wait…what if you only like spooky content that features witches? And what if you feel like you’ve already seen everything that’s out there? I mean, how many times can you watch The Craft? (Answer: as many times as you want!) But I’ll bet you a bag of creme pumpkins and a vintage cashmere cardigan that there’s some wonderful witchy fare (some scary, some satirical, some arty) you may not have seen (some of it made before you were born — now that’s scary)! And these witchy picks are all available to stream!
